Nottingham ( NOT-ing-əm, locally ) is a city and unitary authority area in Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, England. It is located 110 miles (180 km) north-west of London, 33 miles (53 km) south-east of Sheffield and 45 miles (72 km) north-east of Birmingham. Nottingham has links to the legend of Robin Hood and to the lace-making, bicycle and tobacco industries. The city is also the county town of Nottinghamshire and the settlement was granted its city charter in 1897, as part of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Nottingham is a tourist destination; in 2018, the city received the second-highest number of overnight visitors in the Midlands and the highest number in the East Midlands.

In the Census 2021 results, Nottingham had a reported population of 323,632. The wider conurbation, which includes many of the city’s suburbs, has a population of 768,638. It is the largest urban area in the East Midlands and the second-largest in the Midlands. Its Functional Urban Area, the largest in the East Midlands, has a population of 919,484. The population of the Nottingham/Derby metropolitan area is estimated to be 1,610,000. The metropolitan economy of Nottingham is the seventh-largest in the United Kingdom with a GDP of $50.9 billion (2014). Aside from Birmingham, it is the only city in the Midlands to be ranked as a sufficiency-level world city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network.

Nottingham is a major sporting centre and, in October 2015, was named ‘Home of English Sport’. The National Ice Centre, Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre and Trent Bridge international cricket ground are all based in or around the city, which is also the home of two professional football teams: Notts County, formerly the world’s oldest professional league club, and Nottingham Forest, famously two-time winners of the UEFA European Cup under Brian Clough and Peter Taylor in 1979 and 1980. The city has professional rugby, ice hockey and cricket teams; it also hosts the Aegon Nottingham Open, an international tennis tournament on the ATP and WTA tours. This accolade came just over a year after Nottingham was named as the UK’s first City of Football.

The city is served by Nottingham railway station and the Nottingham Express Transit tram system; its bus company, Nottingham City Transport, is the largest publicly owned bus network in England. In December 2015, Nottingham was named a ‘City of Literature’ by UNESCO, joining a list of 20 Cities of Literature. The title reflects Nottingham’s literary heritage, with Lord Byron, D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe having links to the city, as well as a contemporary literary community, a publishing industry and a poetry scene. The city is served by three universities: the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University and the Nottingham campus of the University of Law; it hosts the highest concentration of higher education providers in the East Midlands.

The financial stability of Nottingham has translated into a real estate market that rewards forward planning and a willingness to look beyond areas of traditional affluence.

Flipping property in Nottingham

The Flipping Strategy in Nottingham

 

Investment property flipping in Nottingham is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Nottingham real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Nottingham real estate.

 

What is distressed Nottingham property:

 

  • Nottingham property in need of renovation
  • Nottingham real estate with a change of purpose and use
  • Oversold Nottingham property
  • Bank repossessions in Nottingham

Put simply, long term investors in Nottingham purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.

 

Calculate profit that you make from Nottingham investment property flipping:

 

Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Nottingham property purchase price: $220,000

Renovation costs: $20,000

Other costs: $25,000

Property sale price: $400,000

Profit: $135,000

 

Experienced property developers in Nottingham use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Nottingham projects.

 

The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Nottingham property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
