So we’ve all watched the TV programmes – Property Ladder etc. We sit and think we could do better than that, surely it’s so easy! Easy to pass judgement when it’s not you doing it and not your money involved.

There is certainly a lot of skill involved in doing a renovation project. One of the main things that you need to do is TO PLAN. Good organisation skills are essential when doing something like this.

You need to decide on your exit strategy up front. Are you going to buy and hold and let the property out or are you going to refurbish the property then try to sell it – flipping. Having more than one exit strategy will reduce your risk. “Begin with the end in mind” Stephen Covey

Make sure you do you research:

  • Research the area – so that you can really target the sort of people who will want to live there, keep your target market in mind when you start to develop your plans.
  • Find a suitable property.

Remember don’t get personal; don’t be tempted to buy things just because you would like them. Don’t spend lots of money on the latest gadgets or technology. This is not going to be your home; you are in this to make a profit!

We have some great eBooks that will help you with a refurbishment project.

DIY vs Tradesmen: Property Improvements You Should and Shouldn’t Do

It is common practice amongst private property owners to seek out houses that require renovating before selling on for higher profit margins — or letting out for better monthly returns. The concept sees such popularity because, to put it simply, it works. Repairs and improvements take time, but the investment has the potential to reap serious rewards. An extreme example of this is a couple who bought a house for a pound, then spent months renovating the place, to receive a valuation of £60k. Obviously, you’ll be unlikely to see a percentage profit increase rivaling that property, which saw a rise in near 6,000,000%, however, there is plenty of money to be made. When it comes to actual property improvement, though, many get caught out thinking they can handle the entire job themselves. Some tasks that increase property value are easily done by the landlord, but others really should be...
