Some tips on renovating a property

Renovation of a property can offer big returns in investment if done properly.

Almost all properties have some potential for renovation — the key is assessing design and financial potential before committing.

Be realistic about factors you can’t change, and be bold about what you can. An assessment of a house you’re interested in should involve at least two viewings (one of which should be recorded for future analysis) so you can get as many questions answered as possible. A structural survey is a great starting point but you need to carry out a comprehensive analysis of where the key problems are, before turning your mind to the key areas for development might lie.

Almost all structural problems are solvable to some degree, but the more severe will impact on your ability to finance the project and insure the end result. The key is in getting the most out of viewings.
