The Best Property Investments You Should Consider

In the current economic climate people are obviously looking for sensible ways to invest their money. But what are the types of investment with significantly lower risks involved? We look at the best property investments you should consider. Not only can you usually expect value growth in the long term, but you can also receive a steady rental return on buy-to-let properties.

Increasing Your Property Value Through Simple Redecorating Tasks

You may be looking to sell your house; or maybe renting out a property; or perhaps thinking ahead to a time in the future when it is likely be more advantageous to sell. Increasing your property value through simple redecorating tasks is a sound investment idea. Most people, when considering how to increase their property value, may look to major construction projects, such as a loft conversion, sideways extension or adding a conservatory to the rear of the property. While it is true that any of these may add value, they all involve a considerable capital outlay.

The Conveyancing Process – and the Fees You Need to Pay

Conveyancing is the term used to describe the legal work that must be carried out when buying or selling a property. Buyers and sellers usually hire the services of a solicitor or a licensed conveyancer to act on their behalf. There are a number of essential tasks that the respective solicitors will need to perform; conveyancing fees may vary from solicitor to solicitor. In this article, we will examine the various tasks performed on behalf of both the buyer and seller.

Landlords Must Have Specific Landlord Insurance

It could be said that the recession has been advantageous for landlords who not only benefit from increased rental demand but also the opportunity to ask higher rental prices. Naturally, this encourages new buy-to-let landlords onto the market. However, landlords insurance for rental property is not the same as standard buildings and contents insurance so it is important to arrange the correct protection for your investment property. One easy mistake to make is if you decide to let out your own property and move out but keep your household insurance in force. A standard domestic policy will be automatically become void so you must arrange proper landlord insurance.

Home Improvements – What Is The Best Investment?

If you’re anything like me, you probably do a little calculation in your head before embarking on a DIY extravaganza that goes a little like this – “ok, so laminate flooring, new skirting, wallpaper, paint, new shelves, new light fittings = £700. Will this put more than £700 on the value of my house?” If yes, do it and if no, think up another idea. What is the best investment?

Realising The Potential Value Of Your Home As A Holiday Home

Just because we are desperate to leave behind quaint village life or the bright lights of the city for a Caribbean beach shack, we shouldn’t discount the fact that just as we dream of our ideal holiday destinations, someone out there across the pond might be dreaming of escaping to a holiday home just like yours. If you’ve been thinking how much you’d like to spend some time in the South of France, why wouldn’t a French homeowner dream about all a house swap London could offer them, particularly with the 2012 Olympics just around the corner?
