Use your nouse to negotiate yourself a Peniciuik property bargain buy!

Today’s Penicuik Property Blog is a bit different. 

I have noticed over the last few weeks that there have been a number of flats for sale in Andrew Court in Penicuik.  It got me thinking that having a number of similar properties for sale in an area allows a buyer to negotiate a better price as, for sure, the sellers will know that there are lots of properties like theirs for sale and so may be open to negotiation on price.

There are currently 3 one bed and 1 two bed flats up for sale in Andrew Court in Peniciuk. 

The one beds are:

·         No 4 – I looked at this one in my blog post of 15 July 2015.  It’s a fairly basic first floor flat that is on the market with Stuart & Stuart for offers over £70,000.

·         No   12 – this is a reasonably presented top floor flat that is on the market with Allan McDougall for offers around £80,000.

·         No 15 – this is the best presented of the 1 bed flats and it is on the ground floor.  The flat it is also on the market with Stuart & Stuart this time for offers over £80,000.  This price has recently been brought down.

The two bed flat is No 7 and it is a reasonably presented 2nd floor corner flat that is on the market with our friends Stuart & Stuart for offers over £90,000.

Rents for 1 bed flats in Andrew Court are around £500, possibly £525, and for 2 bed flats they are around £600, possible £625.  At these rents, yields of more than 8% are possible on the published prices.

Given that there are so many flats for sale in the block, there is an chance for buyers to negotiate hard over selling prices and bag themselves a bargain which would push the yield even higher!

We hope you find our posts useful.  If you want some advice on this property, another property you have in mind or anything else property related, come and see us in our office (6 Bank Street, Penicuik) or email either of us (;

  1. Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
