One overseas landlord, who has already followed the golden rules of letting, is reaping the rewards and is enjoying a staggering 43% increase in rent which rose from £280 to £400 per week.
Firstly, he bought well - a one bedroom apartment in one of the best streets in the best locations, adjoining Hampstead Heath in London. And following on from that, he instructed In:Style Direct to give the property the right look so that it would appeal to his target market.
This refurbishment included a stunning bathroom/wet room with stylish white sanitary ware and top of the range power shower.
With all the cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants available in Hampstead, the kitchen may not get quite as much use as the luxury bathroom, but it's just as high spec. Black granite work surfaces with cream part tiled walls, sit very comfortably with the white designer kitchen units with chrome handles, and stainless steel extractor and sink.
To achieve the final look good quality wooden floors were installed and the apartment was fully furnished down to the last detail complemented by ani-M soft furnishings.
