A guide for Investors

Ashbrookes are very well placed to support all investors, whether a first buy-to-let or a major multi-story residential or commercial development.

We are privileged that we are based in Middlesbrough, in The North East of England in an area that represents extremely good value for investors seeking high rental yields and attractive returns on property development projects.

Where we are marketing a property for sale

We can provide expert guidance to buyers on how to best develop a property in order to maximise it’s yield, arrange for the design, planning and build works, undertake to let the developed property and if desired, sell the property in order to release profit back to the investor.

Where other agents are marketing properties for sale

Where an investor wishes to consider a property that is not marketed by us, but by another Estate Agent, then we can provide the same service to the investor at a small cost which is fully refundable if the investor engages us to work on the project after purchase.

Our costs are: 

£250 for street house renovations and conversions

£500 for commercial or land developments

Our sourcing service

We are able to take detailed instructions from investors who are either abroad or too far away and search out suitable investments that meet their investment criterion.  The opportunities will be presented in a transparent manner with purchase, development, letting and sales costs all clearly documented.  Our fees vary dependant on the type of investment to be made and the amount of work we need to undertake.   Our fee will be declared at the start of our engagement.  

As a guide our fees for some of the more popular services investors take up are as below.  Please note these fees include our costs for feasibility design work, cost estimating and desktop valuations of proposed developments
