 All About Property Sourcing:

There are two main types of property sourcing: residential and commercial.

Residential property sourcing is the process of finding a property to purchase for use as a home, investment opportunity, buy to let, or landlords to find rental properties to add to their portfolio.

Commercial property sourcing is the process of finding a property to purchase for use as a business premises.

There are also two main types of property sourcing deals: land and building.

Land sourcing deals are when you purchase the land only, without a building on it.

Building sourcing deals are when you purchase a property that has a building already on the land.

Converting property from commercial to residential in the UK

In the UK, it is possible to convert a property from commercial to residential use. This can be a great way to adapt a property to better suit your needs, or to make use of a property that has been sitting unused.

There are a few things that you will need to take into consideration when converting a property from commercial to residential. The first is that the property may need some modifications in order to meet residential building regulations. You will also need to get planning permission from your local council, as the use of the property may have changed.

If you are converting a property from commercial to residential, it is important to remember that the rules around planning and building regulations can be quite complex. It is always advisable to speak  to an expert who can help you navigate these rules and make sure that your conversion is carried out safely and legally.

At Henson & Stanley, we have years of experience in converting properties from commercial to residential. We can help you with every step of the process, from obtaining planning permission to completing the conversion itself.

What is property Investment?

Property investment is the purchase of property with the expectation of acquiring capital appreciation, positive cash flow, and rental income. Investing in property has been a common practice for thousands of years and most people will at some point in their lives invest in property to either live in or rent out. When an investor purchases a rental property, they typically do so with the expectation that it will generate enough income through monthly rent payments to cover expenses associated with owning and operating the building (such as repairs and taxes) and produce a profit.


What Is an Investment Property? 

An investment property is a great way for an investor to make money. They purchase properties and then collect rent from renters or enjoy capital growth in their returns on these investments over time. An investment property can be as small as a 1 bedroom flat, large as a block of flats, or even as specialised commercial building into residential housing. In each case they carry an appeal that makes them profitable investments – be it maximising the rental yield on all units by renting them directly to those who need them rather than going through brokers and creating vacancies, purchasing a popular location where demand often exceeds supply so that one can sell units at a high price but still maintain the high level of demand, or putting capital to work for oneself by building one’s own enterprises.


Why Invest in Nottingham Property?

People buy investment property in Nottingham for many reasons, but the majority of investors choose to purchase a dwelling because they believe that it will be easy to let and yield good returns. The local economy is healthy, there are several prestigious universities in the surrounding areas, and according to statistics published by the ONS (Office of National Statistics), more than 79% of people who live in Nottingham work locally. This means that many of them do not have to commute more than about 15 minutes before arriving at their place of employment. 


Buy to sell property in Nottingham

So you want to buy to sell a property? Why not! Buying is the easy part. Everyone wants to be a buyer. So they will pay more, right? Well, that is not always true. You have your reasons for buying and your motives may get in the way of actually getting a good deal. Also do you have the time for all the leg work and due diligence involved to get the right deal?


This is where we come in!


One of the most common forms of property investment is buying to sell. This form of investing involves buying a piece of property with the intention to sell it for a higher price later, thus making a profit. It differs from other types of property investments in that the investor has no plans on actually living or working in the property themselves. Instead, they plan to buy it and hold onto it so they can see their money grow through rising housing prices. We can help you find great deals with our expert research, network of contacts and sourcing skills. Give us a call, tell us what you want, let us do the rest!

Buy to Let Property Investment: Simply, How?

Best areas in Nottingham to invest in

The best areas in Nottingham to invest in are the popular, high-demand suburbs surrounding the city. These areas will continue to grow in value and be in demand for many years to come. A few of these suburbs include West Bridgford, Mapperley Park, Bestwood Park and New Basford. The reasons that these areas are considered some of the best to invest in include their great social life, nearby amenities and transport links to other nearby cities like Derby or Leicester.

Nottingham Property Property Prices in 2022

Nottingham is a city in the East Midlands region of England that borders South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The population is over 300,000 providing the area with a diverse culture and host to many events such as festivals and sporting events. Property prices in Nottingham are currently on the rise as people move into the area to take advantage of readily available jobs. We will look at what property prices may be like by 2022. According to Rightmove, house prices in Nottingham have risen 1% each month on average since January 2015 which has seen an overall increase of 9%. One bedroom properties typically cost around £112,664 whilst five bedroom houses cost about £227,827 (uswitch). This shows an increase from  last year which saw property prices rise 6.4%. It is predicted that by 2022 average house prices in Nottingham are likely to have risen between 11% and 16% bringing the average price of a one bedroom property to £133,418 (rightmove) and an average five bedroom house costing around £253,365 (uswitch). This can be attributed to the fact there is still high demand for employment opportunities in the area despite many companies moving out of other large city areas to find cheaper costs elsewhere. This means that people will continue to move into Nottingham to take advantage of these jobs which will keep demand high meaning that house prices will likely increase even further. 


Why Are Nottingham Property Prices Rising?

Nottingham City is keen to attract people who want the benefits of living in a city but are looking for cheaper housing. This is one of the reasons why Nottingham property prices are rising. The city council has also introduced schemes that have increased business and encouraged new businesses to invest in Nottingham. The Council is taking steps to ensure that residents feel safe whilst they are out on the streets after dark by continuing investment in CCTV equipment, street lighting, and patrols by police officers on mountain bikes with radios. This will make residents feel more secure about spending time outside, which will encourage them to spend their money locally with the result being more money spent in our shops and restaurants thus creating additional jobs with businesses growing as a result.

However, despite all these little surges, the overall future for Nottingham property prices looks fairly positive. For one thing, our city is getting better connected; not only do we have the tram system, but there are plans to improve bus services and employment hubs within walking distance of the city centre. These plans could make it easier for local residents to get to work or school without needing to take their car out which would reduce congestion on roads and parking spaces thus making life more affordable for everybody who lives here. Our city’s designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site will also play its part in increasing property values here because it means that developers cannot simply open up an old building and start knocking it down, they must find another way around the problem which then often results in the improvement of the building to befit its status. Nottingham has multiple universities which attract students from all over the world who are looking for a place to live while they study. This, in turn, stimulates the economy here when they open businesses and invest their money into local properties in order to rent them out to students during term time or holiday periods. The more people that come here means there are fewer empty commercial units on our city streets so property prices will go up as they become more scarce, driving demand even higher until someone is willing to pay what they ask. We have seen large retail chains moving in over recent years because of our location between two motorways and being near one of the largest cities in England it makes this area attractive to landlords.

One possible reason for this is that people are moving here to take advantage of the growing student population, who generally rent rather than buy property. As the number of students increases, more homes and rented properties need to be built in order to accommodate them which increases demand among local homeowners who want their house or flat’s value to increase so they can sell it for a profit when they move on. This also puts pressure on the housing market as well as the rental sector creating scarcity which makes owners ask for higher prices. There has been an 18% increase in student numbers over recent years meaning fewer vacancies and greater competition between those trying to find somewhere affordable or livable to study at one of our universities or further education colleges. Many of these students have to take up shared housing which drives demand for cheap and accessible rentals.

A further drop in first-time buyers has led to a shortage of lower-priced properties as higher prices are out of reach for younger generations due to lack of deposit or lack of availability. His advice is to be patient as this is naturally going to happen to be so close to major city centres such as Nottingham Trent University and our very own the University Of Nottingham where 95% of our student population come from. In the meantime, those looking for good rental deals should look outside the centre towards areas such as West Bridgford which offer great value for money making living affordable even on a tight budget. He urges people not to give up, especially if they are not willing to compromise on location whilst looking for a new home.

We have also noted that the area around Clifton is one of the most popular places to live in Nottingham at present due to its proximity to alternative areas such as West Bridgford but still have access to local amenities by being so close to the Trent University Quarter. Prices are increasing dramatically due to demand outweighing supply however rents remain reasonably affordable, meaning Clifton has still been considered a good student settling spot providing you do not mind spending £1000 + pm for rent.

A: Our property sourcing service is different from others because we have years of experience in the industry and a large network of partners and connections. This allows you to get access to the best properties on the market, at relatively short notice. 

Q: What is property sourcing? 

A: Property Sourcing – or ‘Property Sourcers’ as they are sometimes called – is a strategy used by many companies looking to either expand their portfolios or purchase new businesses. It’s appeal comes down to 3 main factors; it saves time , it saves money, and it gives access to some of the best deals out there . Most people buy commercial property through an agent, but this creates problems. Agents are expensive, and they can be slow at times. The problem with agents is that they often lack the expertise required to judge whether or not a property is suitable for your business before weighing up the pros and cons of this potential purchase. When you use our service, we do some of these preliminary checks on your behalf. We will vet properties using our extensive network of contacts in the industry so that you don’t have to waste any time looking at unsuitable deals. 

What is commercial Property? 

Commercial property is the term used for office space, shop space etc., which can be bought by companies looking to expand their operations. As opposed to residential real estate, it is more straight-forward to buy since  you don’t have to worry about any legal paperwork as you would with a house. It is more expensive than residential property, however, this additional cost will typically be offset by the benefits of having a larger property which can accommodate your growing business needs. Commercial properties are sometimes easier to sell on too, so you may find that selling your commercial property investment back onto the market is a lot simpler than finding a buyer for a house. 

How do I find Office Space for my Business in Nottingham?

If you’re looking for office space in and around Nottingham, then it’s likely that you’ll have dozens of potential suppliers on your plate at least. You could go old school and browse listings online or go through print media, but this would take up way more time than you’ve got available and come at an unnecessary cost. Why not use a specialist office space service that will do the hard work for you, and bring all of the best deals together in one place? You can then compare all the available office space locally, and we can arrange appointments, and book the perfect office space for your needs quickly, easily, and efficiently.
