Whether you’re a first-time investor or a seasoned landlord with an established portfolio, read on to see how we can help.
Why use us?
We are the only agent in the area to offer a complete property investment service to landlords, which covers everything from identifying suitable buy-to-let properties and securing them on budget to renovating and refurbishing properties to increase their value. Our investment knowledge has been gained through personal experience in the local area: Managing Director Jonathan South continues to add to his own buy-to-let portfolio and knows the ins and outs of this often complex market.
Not all potential investment properties are as good as they first seem: there may be hidden issues such as subsidence and damp, it may be located in an unpopular rental area or the property may need more work than you first thought. Luckily, we can help at this crucial stage and we’re always available to give you impartial advice on any property that you’re interested in. When you find a property we will happily give you an idea of what needs doing and the costs involved.
Renovation & refurbishment
JD Property Renovations is our successful renovation and refurbishment company which is available exclusively to South & Co customers. Jonathan initially set the company up to work on his own investment properties but expanded it due to increasing requests from our landlords for JD Property Renovations to work on their own properties. Our experienced and highly qualified contractors offer a high quality finish at a competitive price.
Securing the best deals
South & Co are well known locally as investment specialists and as a result we have access to many of the below-market bargains which don’t make it to the open market. We work closely with investors and have helped many to add real value to their portfolio; we are also the first point of contact for landlords looking to sell and can often secure a buyer with a few phone calls. So get in touch if you have money to invest and see what bargains are available.
Jonathan has tried his hand at pretty much every aspect of property development: from designing and building new-build houses in Madeley, converting large terraced houses into modern flats in Crewe, and buying investment properties at auction in Stoke; to building extensions and fully refurbishing uninhabitable houses in Crewe, Stoke and Manchester. You can speak to Jonathan about any project that you have in mind and he’ll be more than happy to help with anything from general advice to a project management role.
Have you ever found yourself wondering if the bathroom-off-the-bedroom in the house on Minshull New Road, Crewe will put off potential tenants, or if the downstairs bathroom will be in issue in Tunstall, Stoke? Whether student properties are still a viable option in Crewe or whether a bargain house in a selective licensing area of Goldenhill, Stoke is worth the risk? We have the local knowledge and expertise to guide you on all of these issues and offer sound advice which investors throughout the area can trust.
