Currently let at £25,400 per annum, a freehold mixed property investment at 102 High Street, Newport is guided at £250,000+.

“Above, the flats are occupied under Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreements – the building is considered ideal for an income-producing portfolio.”

“At £250,000, based on the current rental income from the shop and flats, the gross rental yield is 10.16%, which is a good return compared to the 1% or so return on interest you’d get with cash savings. High inflation also means cash is losing money in real terms.”

A seafront development site, with planning consent for 4 town houses, is guided freehold at £650,000 to £700,000. Beachlands, Esplanade, Ventnor, which was once a grand family home and is now in a “poor state of repair”, has views across the beach and the English Channel beyond.

Clive Emson’s auction timers end on Thursday 5th May, with the online bidding live 2 days beforehand.
