Savvy landlords recognise London property often stays in really good shape even when the housing market in the rest of the country appears to be on a slide. Because of high demand and limited housing stock, this desire for people to live in London pushes up prices. This is why many investors consider buying residential property in West London with a view to then selling it on at a later date. This is often a smart decision, and if you are in this position or just entering into this process, you may want to think about buying something modest or in not such a great state of repair and turning it into something fantastic.
Property renovation or refurbishment is a smart way to unlock extraordinary value, improve capital return and make more money from property investment in West London. If you are buying to sell, there is no rush or urgent requirement to get renovation work done because you already have a place to live and you are not counting on the new property being completed within a short dealdine. Instead, you can afford to take your time over things, and be dictated to by the numbers, not by your lifestyle.
It is worth getting a team of design and build professionals to work a bit of magic into your property. It may look modest at first, but with a trained and capable architect, a professional interior designer as well as local construction expert who knows the area and the type of building you are buying, this assistance from professionals could help you turn a property into something truely fantastic. Something that will attract a lot of attention on the market. Something you can expect to make a lot more money on the property than if you had just sat on the investment and not done anything proactive.
