Homes Under The Hammer on the BBC!

Published 20th December, 2016

Back in February we were surprised to receive a call from Lion Television asking us to take part in the BBC TV show Homes Under the Hammer!

Jamie went along to a lovely property on Stoke Road in Hinckley which was in need of some modernisation and TLC. As the supply of bungalows in the area is relatively low the demand for this type of property is high. That’s the main reason the owner chose to purchase this property at the auction.

At the market appraisal it was suggested that a new kitchen & bathroom would maximise the returns on this investment for the owner. Furthermore decoration was required to include painting and carpets throughout.

Alternatively this property would also make an ideal Buy to Let purchase with an estimated rental income of £750 per calendar month. This year the market in Hinckley and the surrounding area has been very buoyant in both sales & rentals. That's despite the uncertainty created since the Brexit vote in June.

The owner has decided to sell the property in its current condition and we are delighted to offer it to the market. Please see the advertising photographs below:
