We are now well underway with our HMO (House of Multiple Occupation) refurbishment in the great town of Leigh. Some information is available thanks to Wikipedia for those unfamiliar with Leigh.
Once complete it will be an all ensuite, all double, premium HMO with a luxurious shared communal space with Living, Kitchen and Dining facilities.
Equipped with fiber broadband, USB sockets, a custom kitchen arrangement and fully furnished this project will be a great addition to the property on offer in Leigh for our future roommates.
This premium property in such a prime location will ensure we are offering high-quality rooms in an area with great demand and need for reasonably priced rooms.
This property was sourced, cleared and refurbished by OneFourFour Property and will be let by OneFourFour Lettings.
Approach to our HMO
Design – We have drafted in a local Design team headed by Jules from Urban Co-Living https://www.urbancoliving.com/ who has set out some design principles to make our HMO stand head and shoulders above the rest in the area. With some cool concepts, upcycling, modern twists and an eye for unique details this project will be one of a kind.
Build – We settled on 8 great size double rooms with all Ensuite. We could have potentially added more however we value space over volume for our roommates and wanted to ensure our house was good for people to stay long term. We have a wonderful top floor room with separate Living space and kitchenette to really allow someone to enjoy this great space. HMO’s from an investment point of view have typically been used to cram people into beige boxes, this approach isn’t one we are looking for at OneFourFour Property investments. We look to design and build high end bespoke and home-like living spaces.
We will utilise the basement space in this great property we have sourced. The space is amazing and will have large light wells front and back to ensure they do not feel too much like basement spaces. We will gain a kitchen living dining space as well as an additional ensuite bedroom.
Our Broadband provider of choice is Virgin Media. The fiber broadband is one of the fastest in the country and with 350mb on tap with the latest wireless router it is sure to please our new HMO occupants. www.virginmedia.co.uk. We run cabling to all of our rooms so there is both direct ethernet as well as Wifi access through our property.
Advertising – We will deploy our strategy for advertising our HMO’s which will be to target local people looking for rooms on the places those roommates and tenants would typically go to look.
We use the following web portals to ensure the maximum views of our rooms by people actually looking for rooms.
Spareroom – https://spareroom.co.uk
Facebook – Facebook.com
Gumtree – www.Gumtree.co.uk
Upad – Upad.co.uk
Typically a letting agent will add to the normal large portals of Rightmove (www.RightMove.co.uk) and Zoopla (www.Zoopla.co.uk) the main issue with relying on these alone is most of the people looking on here are looking for whole houses or apartments rather than individual rooms, although some will also land here for the best results we use Spareroom, Facebook and Gumtree.
We have found mixed results with Gumtree and Facebook compared to Spareroom however they do provide a good source of locals interested in the rooms we provide.
