  • Affordability – (see what house for sale can you afford?)

    A guide from the UK government

  • House Location – The borough and region of the UK you want to invest in is an important factor to consider when looking for a home for sale.

  • Transport – Commuting can be a waste of time. Minimise it by checking how long it will take from the house for sale you’re interested in, to your office before considering buying

  • Number of bedrooms – The number of bedrooms goes hand in hand with the house for sale price. If you are buying for the long period try to think if you might need an extra bedroom

  • Energy performance of the house for sale – The difference between an EPC rating of A and an EPC rating of G can impact your monthly utility bills, consider this when evaluating houses for sale.

  • Internet connection – Being able to take video calls from your home is crucial nowadays, always check the broadband of the area when browsing houses for sale

  • Car park – Ask the property seller for parking availability. If it is included in the price of the house for sale, you can justify paying more than you would at first glance

  • Conditions of the house for sale – Repair works can be expensive and take a lot of time, assess the conditions of the houses listed for sale before making an official offer.

What’s the rental yield in general for the city of Badbury?

You may have heard of rental yield as being important for investors who wish to make a sizable profit on their rental properties. If this sounds like you and you’re looking to invest in a house currently for sale and collect rental income in Badbury this statistic is what you were looking for.

Data should also be compared to the broader region of the UK (South West) alongside Wiltshire then looked at with other statistics like the area’s rent and the turnover of sale of the houses in question. It could be that an investor prefers to make a profit on the sale of a house rather than the rental income and optimal properties for this investment varies throughout Badbury.

This decision is made differently depending on the investor’s tolerance for risk, investing strategy, the location they’re investing in and their overall goal for buying a house currently listed for sale.

As you observe table above, it could be valuable to contrast these figures with other pieces of data relevant to the process of buying like the crime rate or the appreciation of houses for sale in Badbury.

As you can tell, the best conclusions are drawn when the buyer of a house for sale looks at all the data involved holistically and doesn’t make quick decisions based on one or two pieces of data. As an example, comparing the data with the number of property sold per month (25) will be useful.

In Badbury, what are the demographics like?

Do the people of Badbury get to enjoy green space?

Providing the right amount of green space for people in the UK is a difficult subject because there are clear benefits for human health but at the same time, it is hard to make sure all areas of the UK can get enough greenery. This is a result of land being already in use in cities where most people live.

In Badbury, 42 is the amount of acres of outdoor space there is for every 1000 people. Charities such as ‘Fields in Trust’ recommend there to be at least 6 acres. This should allow you to conclude whether this green space is sufficient for you if you are interested in buying in Badbury.

What is the city of Badbury’s social grade score?

The social grade of a city is useful when searching for a house for sale because it tells you what kind of jobs people have in the area. For example, there could be a lot of skilled manual workers or there could be a lot of pensioners and people on benefits.

The scale goes from a social grade of an A who are high managerial, administrative or professional workers to an E where people in this category are on state pensions, casual workers or unemployed on state benefits. The number of people in Badbury in grades A or B which are the highest skilled roles in the country is 31%.

It could be that the crime rate is higher than you expected but there it is worth the population growth, appreciation of the house and worth the relative price you are purchasing the house for.

Nonetheless, the crime rate of 6000% is not a statistic that should just be ignored as you could have to pay more for things like home insurance and install additional security on your house if the rate is particularly high.

Either way, burglaries are not something you would want to encounter in a house. Whether that be a house you are living in or a house you are renting out to tenants.
