I regularly get asked but perspective property investors, ‘what should I look for when I’m looking to buy an property, to help get the most for it when I sell it in the future?’.
The truth is that there is not a “one size fits all” answer to this question, as everyone’s circumstances and situations are going to be different but over the almost 20 years I’ve been in real estate, here are my top 7 responses, that often come up.
With the recent movement in the market, I am seeing more and more articles in the media that are arguing the point that we would be better off to rent than buy our principal place of residence. They cite many different reasons to justify their position such as it offers a better lifestyle and allows us the opportunity to have more “toys” in our life with the extra disposable income.
What I see is that these arguments fail to take many key factors into account.
