Actress Rachel Shenton is best known for playing Mitzeee in Hollyoaks. However, the television star has another role, as a landlady.
She started developing properties at the age of 22 when she bought a three-bedroom, semi-detached house in Staffordshire at auction. Now 26, she has just invested in her fifth place, a two-bedroom terrace house in Bradley near Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Before renting it out, she intends to completely renovate the place to incorporate a new kitchen and cosmetic alterations.
Through clever restoration and savvy auction purchases, Shenton has almost doubled the value of her portfolio. And now that she is in a strong financial position, she’s set her sights on London. Flying the flag for Generation Rent.
