Eight renovation traps for investors

Posted by admin on September 6, 2015

Renovating could make you a lot of money, but there are potential dangers that even seasoned investors fall prey to:

1.     Getting Emotional

Everyone likes something shiny right?  When people get emotionally attached to that amazing porch, it clouds their judgment. I would recommend when buying investment properties have the tools and experience to do so!


2.     No Reserve

A huge pitfall that grabs hold of new investors is putting everything they have into a deal and not leaving anything in the bank for emergencies. Guess what? Things happen! Trees fall, roofs leak, appliances break, rent comes in late or not at all. Even if a deal is great, if you do not have enough capital in the bank to support it for a few months you may end up liquidating it or other assets to balance your ship.


3.     Information Overload

Too much analysis leads to paralysis. I have some clients doing PHD before buying; you cannot succeed in Real Estate without actually buying some. So act!

4.       Rushing in and buying something with only marginal profit.

 5.     Assuming that buying something cheap is automatically a good renovation


6.     Not understanding the area in which you want to renovate

7.     Not researching/knowing you’re likely selling price

8.     Not planning and costing your renovation before you start work
