Property Turn Offs Are Good News For Property Investors

The Top 20 Property Turn-Offs
That Are Good News For Property Investors 

There are a number of obvious things that can put the general public off buying a property including damp, rotten windows and lack of a garden among the list of deal breakers for potential property buyers.

A survey by popular comparison website gocompare.com found that 70% of potential property buyers would not buy a property which had damp patches or stained walls or ceilings, 63% were put off by properties in a poor state of repair and 15% were put off by clutter.

Properties with problems are good news for landlords and property investors, as they have experience of rectifying issues in order to turn a profit and problems mean discounted sale prices, allowing equity to be locked into the deal from the start.

Generally, ordinary home buyers are afraid to spend money on issues that they know nothing about, however landlords and property investors can see beyond the solution and realise potential profit by fixing the issues that put off everyday home buyers.

Beware Of The Shits and Sharks! - Avoid Becoming A Victim Of Rogue Traders

Beware Of The Shits and Sharks! – Avoid Becoming A Victim Of Rogue Traders

Beware Of The Rogue Traders,
Shits And Sharks!

There are a number of rogue traders back in the property investment community as the UK property market picks up pace again following the financial crisis that saw all but the most serious property investors continue to purchase properties.

The emergence of rogue traders and dodgy dealers is nothing new in property investment industry as scammers try to part willing investors with their savings by offering property deals that don’t stack up, costly property investment educational courses and worthless seminars and workshops designed to provide some cover for a high pressure pitch fest full of ill conceived propaganda designed to trigger reckless spending.

According to the latest property report from property advisors Colliers International, the UK is still seen as a safe haven for property investment.

The Colliers report shows that overall property transaction levels remain fairly limited as property investors take stock.

London continues to lead the way for the UK for international property investment, however, regional markets are seeing some movement and prime rental yields are stable.

In the residential property sales market property price declines are expected to be modest in 2012 as banks and other lenders begin to push up mortgage rates.

Director of research and forecasting at Colliers International, Walter Boettcher, said: “The UK economy remains flat with GDP in the first quarter of 2012 falling by 0.2% quarter on quarter. In contrast, the weighted average of purchasing manager indices over the first quarter was 54.5 consistent with economic expansion. Retail sales volume rose 0.8% over the quarter; and unemployment improved slightly, falling from 8.4% to 8.3%. Capital markets showed few effects of the announcement. Positive news from the US and successful bond auctions in the Eurozone suggest that weak performance is accompanied by stability. The downside has already been factored in and other data sources suggest greater underlying strength. The French election has also had a very limited effect. If anything, the result has boosted safe haven property investment both in the UK and Europe”.

UK investors are facing stiff competition from foreign markets as international property investors, who are able to obtain finance, look to the UK for bargain property prices and high rental yields
