Our Investment Property of the Month for December is this stylish two-bedroom apartment in Southampton, which is one of the most appealing buy-to-let opportunities on the market right now.

The apartment is available to purchase with tenants in situ, meaning an investor will benefit from an immediate return and the presence of reliable, quality tenants.

It currently generates a monthly rental of £705 (£8,460 per annum) and with an asking price of £170,000, it would deliver a healthy yield of five per cent.

What’s more, the apartment has been managed by Leaders since 2010, so our team can provide prospective investors with full tenant and maintenance history. This is an opportunity to invest with extreme confidence.

The property is spacious and well presented, while its location close to Swanwick train station ensures it will always be popular with young professionals seeking a base in the city.
