I am hoping to invest in Middlesbrough, but am struggling to find a good area to focus on. I prefer solid ex council 3 bed houses in reasonable areas, where a family will be happy to settle long term. My preferred purchase price is £65k to £70k, rental from £500 to £550.
Can anyone recommend please any areas? Failing that, any other areas up North that reach that criteria?
Thank you, would appreciate any advice!
I have 32 in Middlesbrough and surrounding areas. Not 100% sure on
I wasnt planning on selling any funtil 2025 but I may be happy to sell a couple that have some equity in them
How many are you looking for. I have 1 in Redcar ex council near the hospital with a good tenant in place.5 + years
1 semi in a Mbrough Council Estate with a good tenant in place 10+ years
1 terraced in a private estate near main road into town centre its empty waiting a quick refurb
Im new to the forum so not sure what to do next
Do you have any photos/info you can send me? As I said, I am totally new to Middlesbrough and am trying to gage good areas that suit my needs.
Any particular reason that you are looking to sell?
Smoggy land I haven’t a clue

LOl!! Smoggy land ?!
No worries, thanks DL, love your posts!
Looks like I will be investing in Newcastle now having done further research..
I know you have said you have to be really careful with areas, but I have found a contact who knows it really well... : )
In NEWCASTLE it changes street corner to street corner
it’s as precise as that
I’m sure Middlesbrough has it’s placed to buy and not to buy
best of luck
Exactly. I kind of decided not to go it alone for that very reason (I live in London) and have been out priced from buying in Hull.
Money goes much further in Newcastle..
Check the rental prices for Middlesbrough on Rightmove. I think you will be hard pushed to achieve £500-£550 for 3 bed.
More likely £425 for 3 bed
Lots of houses for rent, the North East in General is suffering from very poor capital gain in the past 10 years. Student properties are good prospects with Teesside University based in Middlesbrough Town Centre/
For your information Smoggy is a term used by Newcastle people for people from Teesside , Mackems are people from Sunderland
Out priced from buying in Hull?!
Wow, I didn't think that would be possible.
There are some very cheap houses in Hull, but for a decent 3 bed ex council house, the prices have gone up in the last couple of years believe it or not.
Thanks for replying. I looked on Rightmove today and there were lots of 3 beds from £450 to £495 in Middlesbrough.
There were a few for £525, £550, even £575, but they were few and far between.
Funnily enough one of the agents I spoke to said that student lets had been a really good investment there for the past 10 years, but now the University has built its own accommodation and that market has really suffered recently.
Newcastle apparently still has really good yields, so will stick to that area as I have a contact there who knows it really well..
Felt I was bit out of my depth in Middlesbrough being so far away and not knowing it at all.
Thanks for enlightening me on the local lingo! Good to know for future reference! : )
