About the Property

This is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 storey unit in a complex of 12 in central Upper Hutt.

Walking distance to nearly everything a city has to offer will make this a very attractive option for tenants.

Bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs and all the living areas are downstairs. Concrete Block construction means noise is minimal, and it is easy maintenance. It has a cross lease title so there is no Body Corporate fees to pay, or Body Corporate rules to abide by.

Comes with a dedicated parking space right by the door, a shed for storage and a small outside area which is easy for tenants to maintain.

It is tidy as is, but you could add value with some cleaning, paint, new flooring, kitchen and bathroom upgrades as and when you are ready, to increase rent even more.

To complete all of these renovations you would be looking at $15,000 - $17,000, increasing rent by up to $40 per week and increasing your valuation at the same time.

  • Purchase price $236,948
  • Deposit $10,000
  • Rental Appraisal $350 per week

Kelly has been fundamental in the process of locating, negotiating and closing on my first investment property. It could not have been easier!

Near-daily updates and the perspective of an experienced property investor and former property manager both put me at ease with the entire process, bearing in mind that I was several thousand miles (and numerous time zones) away and also has ended up with me having a great investment that I hope to grow into many more.

But, it doesn’t stop there, Kelly also project managed the renovations to get the property up to scratch and ready to rent. Again, perfect communication made the entire process super easy and as an experienced investor herself she was able to save me a lot of money by negotiating with local contractors on my behalf. I can’t wait to crack on with number two and hope to be able to use Kelly’s experience and connections again."
