Before you renovate
Friday 20 January 2017
Renovation is an excellent way to add value to a property, but there are certain key things investors should consider before embarking on a reno job.
As Kiwis we all like to keep our rental properties in good order, enhancing them where possible for capital or rental gain.
But there’s no point for an investor to rush in if the projects they are planning won’t change the status quo.
For this reason, planning and careful research is crucial.
So, in the January issue of NZ Property Investor magazine, we feature an article covering our 10 top tips to inspire and inform investors' renovation projects.
Our top 10 tips revolve around:
1. Due diligence.
2. Dollars and sense.
3. Effects on rent.
4. Finding contractors.
5. Looking to the future.
6. Avoiding inconvenience.
7. Fine details.
8. Keeping on top of things.
9. Safety and security.
10. Paperwork matters.
Each of our tips features a comprehensive rundown of what investors should consider - and do - before embarking on a renovation project.
