Are you thinking of buying or renovating a property?
If so, you'll definitely find this useful.

Several tips for buying a house to renovate

Before you start
Regardless of your chosen property, the most important thing you need to take stock of is your finances. These will completely dictate what you do and will guide all of your planning. Working out how much you have to spend will dictate how large the project will be, and how long it will take.
Finding a house
The best way to find a suitable house is to look through different estate agents. As renovation has become much more popular in recent years, the competition for finding suitable properties has risen considerably. Therefore, you may be on an estate agent’s books for many months before they offer you anything.
Before you buy
Before you buy a house, there are a number of things which you should check so you do not get any nasty surprises when it's too late. Make a plan of what changes you would like to make to the house, so you know exactly how the finished product would look. This will help you decide which rooms you want where and will give you an indication of exactly how much work will be necessary.
