Just onto the Market is this Studio Apartment on Lansdowne Road. Priced at £68995, this good sized Apartment does seem to present a good opportunity. Gas Heating, Double Glazing, and allocated Parking, all within walking Distance of the Station, means its a perfect place for a regular Commuter.
With a potential Rent of £425-£450 pcm it would certainly give a good return for Bedford (over 7%). One note of caution is that there is no mention of the Lease. It could be that the Lease may need to be renewed in which case, make sure it gets done before you buy or is factored into the Purchase.
The Golden Rule is anything less than 80-85 years needs attention, unless you plan to live there till you drop dead !
