There are many different ways that you can buy a property. When it comes to choosing a home for yourself and your family, you will no doubt have a number of different requirements that you will be looking for. The house will need to be located somewhere that suits your needs. Whether that means that it is an easy commute to your place of work, or is close to friends and family, there will always be concerns that surround your preferred choice of property.

But often, one major factor that plays into your decision making is the financial aspect. You will no doubt want to get the most house for the least money. That means having a home that meets all of your needs, for as little as possible.

Here are some ways that you can look at spending less on your property.

Buy Land And Develop

If you have the time, patience, and the willingness to put in a lot of hard work, you could buy a piece of land such as the ones found on the wyndham ridge estate and then build your own home. Of course, you will need to engage an architect and a builder to help you realize your dreams unless of course, you have these skills yourself.

You would obviously need to price up the entire project before you could commit to it, but in theory, you could save yourself some money and have a much better home.

Restore A Property

When a house falls into a state of disrepair, it will rapidly lose its value. So, if you come to buy a home that is in poor condition, you will be getting the potential for a much better home, for much less.

If you are willing and able to work to restore a run-down property, then there are some real savings for you. Get a survey carried out of the entire property and use that information to help you to prioritize tasks. There may be unseen structural problems that should be addressed before anything else.

Buy A Property Before It Is Built

Many property developers will be looking to sell homes that they are yet to build. They want a very quick turnaround on any houses, and it often helps them if they have sold the property before they even break ground.

Look for developments opening up in the area that you are interested in living. Often, many homes will be built at the same time. You’ll be able to view floor plans and artist impressions of how the home will look once built. Often, the developers will build a show home first, which they can use for selling other properties that follow the same design.

Of course, buying a new home will come with its issues. Once the home is completed, you may need to call the builders back to carry out remedial works on any snagging issues that you may find. This is quite normal, but it is something that you should be aware of.

Tips To Help Sell A Home Quickly

Think About First Impressions

First impressions are something that really matters, and when it comes to selling a home, you want to do everything you can so that they leave that property with wanting to sign on the dotted line. Create an environment that makes the buyer want to live in your home right there and then. Display some flowers in the living space and set up the dining table with all your nice cutlery and crockery. Make sure the property smells nice and that there’s lots of natural light shining through. Think about curb appeal and ensuring everything is pruned and trimmed nicely when it comes to the outdoor space. The more you do as the owner, the better you have of securing offers on the home.

Declutter Your Home

Decluttering is essential even before you go letting a photographer into your home to take photos. Whether your home is in Griffith Park or tucked away down an unfamiliar street, a messy home isn’t going to be enjoyable to view. Try to remove everything that’s causing a mess or creating a problem area in your home, and that might be obstructing a view of your property. Whether that’s toys thrown in a pile in a corner or clunky furniture leaning haphazardly against a window or door frame. Declutter and organize your home so that it’s functional for people to walk around freely and without discomfort.

Choose The Right Agents

The agents you pick will influence how quickly you sell your property. You want to make sure that they are familiar with the type of property you have and that they have potential buyers lined up to view the property as soon as possible. The longer it stays on the market, the more dangerous that can be for the value of your home. So choose your agent wisely and don’t be too quick to jump into a partnership unless you are really sure that they are the right match for you.

Be Careful With Your Price

The price you set for your home is important because if you set it too high, then you might not get anyone who is interested. If you set it too low, you could end up missing out yourself on a good deal. Try to discuss your prices with the agents and be sure to do some research in the surrounding area. Look at what you may or may not be in competition with. Set a reasonable amount and know what your lowest would be in terms of asking price.

Selling a home quickly isn’t always something that’s achieved, but with these tips, you can give yourself the best chance possible.

There are obviously a number of different financial factors that will go into determining the value of your property and the potential return that you may see on your investment. These may include the activity of the housing market both at the time of your initial purchase and right now, and it will factor in the depreciation or increase of the value of the property due to the condition in which it has been maintained. The local market will play a part in setting the potential sale price too. Changes in the local economy and any developments on land nearby can drastically influence the current market value.

Nobody wants to see their home slide into negative equity. However, this is a very real prospect for anyone who is selling up. To Minimize the risk of your home being worth less than you paid for it, you may want to follow these tips.

Modernize Your Kitchen And Bathroom

Two of the areas in your home which may put potential buyers off will be your kitchen and your bathroom. These need to be modern areas of your home with up-to-date styling and fixtures that service modern needs.

By replacing all of your fixtures and your kitchen and bathroom tile, you will create a modern look that will be far more appealing

Create Space And Light

Homebuyers want to see properties that have ample space for them to live. One of the best ways of making your home look as big as possible is to create space by removing as much clutter and as many unnecessary items of furniture as possible. Creating an open space will allow potential buyers to see the home in the best possible light.

Remove any thick heavy curtains and look for ways to get more light into your property. You can do this by painting all of your walls white. This will help reflect natural light from your windows onto your walls.

Spruce Up Your Exterior

The first thing that potential buyers in the outside of your home. By making sure that your exteriors are in top condition, you will be able to add curb appeal and value to your property. Paint your walls with masonry paint where needed. Clean or paint all window ledges and ensure your windows are all clean. Fix any broken tiles and guttering, and make sure that your front door looks the best that it can.

Tidy Your Garden

Outdoor spaces are important to many buyers too. Nobody wants to buy a home with a shabby garden. Make sure that you do everything that you can to clean this up. Cut any lawns, and trim back any bushes and trees that are overgrown. Clean any patio areas, and think about planting some flowers too.

How To Make Money From Your Property

Two of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. Real estate is currently one of the most lucrative investment classes out there. There are numerous ways to make money by owning a property and the only limitation is the owner’s creativity. The following contributed post is entitled, How To Make Money From Your Property.

Being able to make money from your property is something that many of us can likely do depending on a few factors. To make a bit of extra cash here and there can be very beneficial for our household savings, so here’s how to make money from your property.

Start Growing And Selling Produce

If you’re a bit of a green thumb in the garden, then there might be a business in what you are successfully able to grow. In this world, where we’re trying to be more sustainable in order to help and support the environment, people will likely want to buy locally. This is because it’s more sustainable and kinder on the environment when you’re getting your fresh produce from a few doors down. First, you want to figure out exactly what you can sell and preferably, you want food and herbs that are going to be quick to grow and harvest. You may also have quite a bit of land to work with and so having somewhat of a farm might be a useful business to operate on the side of your full-time job. It’s important that if you start expanding beyond selling locally, then you may need to get clued up with some Agriculture lawyers who can give you advice on contracts, etc.

Rent Out A Room

You might have quite a big-sized property, so big in fact that you have too much to make use of. Renting out your space has now become very profitable after the creation of sites like Airbnb, which lets pretty much anyone put up a room or home as a holiday let. If you want though and have a freehold property, you could rent out a room. This can be done directly with yourself, or you might want to let a property agent sort it all out with no real effort needed from yourself. As long as you’re happy sharing or if it’s the whole property, coming to terms with it never being the same as how you had it, it’s worth doing. Some tenants might damage the property by accident, so there’s always that which needs thinking about in regard to the extra expenditures you might need to make further down the line.

Create A Side Hustle

A side hustle is something you do to make money on the side of your current job. And before long you can find yourself looking for further investments, checking out the best investment properties and even researching the best swiss bank account you can find. It’s an exciting prospect and worth thinking about. It might be from a hobby that you currently have and which you can transform into a money-making venture. Being able to create a side hustle is exciting because you end up having control over what you create or produce and you become a one-man band, doing everything that’s involved with running a business. Whether you’re selling handmade items on Etsy or running an online blog that works with brands, having something on the side can provide you with that little extra income that you or your household might need in emergencies. Side hustles can often also turn into full-time ventures if you work hard enough.

Sell It As An Event Space

Your home might be very functional in terms of a space to hold events. It could be unique enough to be the set of a film or television show. Or a place for fashion companies and brands to shoot their own content for business. So there are plenty of opportunities where your home can become an event space or an opportunity for a company to come in and use it to feature their services or products. As a homeowner, this can be a very interesting experience because you get to see your home being used in a different light while making money off others who require your space. There are plenty of people out there that might need your home for a day or two, so take advantage of what’s online so that you can benefit from using your home as a place for others to do business.

Making money from your property is one benefit that’s come from the modern-day world that we now live in. Now that we have access to so many more resources, we have the opportunity to be able to do more. We can create side hustles and businesses from the comfort of our home. We’re able to feature our homes as event spaces, filming opportunities and even to rent it out through online holiday accommodation sites. So if you need a little extra income, take a look at what your property might be able to offer you as an income.

Looking After Your Intellectual Property

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success. Two key focuses are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. In most businesses, the product being created or sold is some form of intellectual property. If you’ve created something, it’s important to consider how to protect it. The following contributed post is entitled, Looking After Your Intellectual Property.

* * *

Whether you operate within a business or you are a freelancer of some sort, you are always going to have some kind of intellectual property, and that is something that you are going to want to protect as well as you possibly can. The truth is that looking after your intellectual property is something that you can be sure of as long as you are aware of what you need to do – and that is easier than you might think. Doing this will mean that you feel a lot safer in your business or personal endeavours, whichever it might be, and that you can expect for your ideas to remain yours in law. So what do you need to do to protect your intellectual property and look after it as well as possible?

Seek Advice

Although there are generally things which you can say for anything to do with intellectual property, it is also true that each case varies from the next. As such, any help you can get on a specific case is going to be very useful, so that is something that you might want to try and seek out as soon as you can for that reason. By seeking advice, you will know that you are doing everything you should be doing to protect yourself. So what advice should you look for? One of the best places to go is to IP consulting, as they are going to be able to inform you as to what you need to do and where your personal dangers are and so on. That will absolutely make a difference when it comes to taking care of your intellectual property in this way.

Remain Legal

It is hugely important that you make a point of remaining legal at all times. If you fail to do that, then it could mean that you struggle to actually get what you need out of the whole situation. It’s easy enough to remain legal, however, and mostly it amounts to not abusing others’ rights in the process. As long as the property is really yours, and you are not stealing from someone else, then you will find that there is no reason you can’t hope to protect it as well as you would want to. That is something that you should absolutely aim for if you are keen to keep on top of all this as best as you can.

Seek Protection

Finally, make sure that you seek protection from the law in whatever way you feel might be necessary. It varies hugely on how to do this depending on your property and what it is, but the main thing to be aware of is that anything you create which is original work is already copyrighted by law. If you want to protect something further, then you will need to look into what you need to do to make sure of that. Seek protection in whatever way you can, and you will find that it is going to make a huge difference.

4 Tips When Investing In Property

Two of the key focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. The world of Real Estate investing has been a major source of wealth for many people. If done correctly, investing in properties can make you wealthy beyond your dreams. The following contributed post is entitled, 4 Tips When Investing In Property.

* * *

If you are looking into various investment opportunities and better ways to use your money it is always worth considering property. It has historically been one of the most stable markets to invest in, though as with any speculative investment, comes with no guarantees. If you are unsure quite where to begin with this one, then take a look at our 4 tips when investing in property to get you started.

Research the area thoroughly

The first thing that you will need to do is research the area that you are looking to buy in thoroughly.

You need to understand who your potential buyers or tenants are going to be in order to understand what they will be looking for in a property. Look at the transport links available and the amenities and facilities nearby. Could this be a great area for young professionals? If so, look for commuter links, homes near train stations, parking availability and perhaps decent bars and restaurants for their social lives.

Other factors worth researching are school catchment areas, medical facilities, neighborhood crime levels and any upcoming developments and changes planned. All of these can affect the price that you buy at and then the price that you may be able to sell or rent.

Selecting the property

Now that you are clear on where you are best to buy, you need to select the property that you wish to invest in. You will need to run numbers with your mortgage advisor and realtor to ensure that it is financially viable to purchase in the first place.

You will then want to commission surveys so that you are aware of any issues upfront before investing. This is slightly different to when you buy for yourself inasmuch as you are not going to have years to correct and improve things, you will want to turn things around quickly for your sale or to get occupants in.

Focus on the exterior and stability

You need to prioritise taking care of the structure of the property, before spending time dressing it inside. It can be easy to get caught up in the design of the interiors, but spend money on the exterior first and work your way in.

Whether you need to use waterproofing contractors or roofing contractors, ensure that you look around for the best company to undertake the work and do not leave it too late to carry this out. Factor the costs of work like this into your investment and projections to give you the best chance of making a profit.

Be realistic with your projections

You need to ensure that you are being realistic with your projections.

You have to be clear on how much time it will take for you to purchase and renovate the property so that it is in condition to sell again or let out, and then run the numbers to check that this works for you.

You need to recognize that some areas or streets have a ceiling value, and creating a magnificent state of the art eight bedroom house on a street full of traditional three bedrooms is unlikely to be a good idea as you simply will not make your money back.

Also factor in the time it can take to get an interested buyer or tenant to your calculations.

How To Find Your Property Investment Niche

Two of the key focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. Investing in real estate can be very lucrative if you know what you’re doing. No matter which part of it you choose to get into, much of succeeding in the real estate investment game involves finding the right property. The following contributed post is entitled, How To Find Your Property Investment Niche.

* * *

If you are considering getting into the property market, you may want to explore the possibility of finding a niche area in which to grow your investment portfolio.

While many people will buy based on the outlay, and the level of work needed to a property before renting or selling-on; so many investors don’t focus their attention on specific areas of investment. Being a specialized investor will allow you to develop significant experience within your sector. Once you have gained that, you can apply your knowledge into getting the best investments.

Investing In Apartments

Often, private investors overlook buying apartments. With an ever-growing population, particularly in concentrated urban areas, apartment living is trendy. A small space within a popular area with excellent links to business hubs, as well as social amenities offers the opportunity for a premium price tag when it comes to renting or selling on.

Take, for example, at these Zetland apartments. Zetland is an area of Sydney that is currently undergoing gentrification and urban renewal. Businesses will begin to flock to the city once developments are completed. Buying into an area that looks set for a significant culture shift now, would pay dividends when the demand for real estate in the neighborhood hits its peak in the coming years.


Houses of multiple occupancies, or HMO for short, offer a high return on investment. By splitting the property into smaller flats or apartments, you can have various rental streams. You will have more tenants to manage. However, you can always hire a letting agency to deal with this process for you.

Given a substantial rise in HMO properties, and the prevailing of landlord exploitation of tenants, there are quite a few regulations surrounding HMOs. It is recommended that you research the specific rules in your area, as you may be required to have a license and undergo regular inspections.

You may want to consider renting this type of property out furnished. And, often, due to the nature of the property it is common to include any utility bills within the rental cost.

Generally speaking, the yield on a house of multiple occupancies is significantly higher than a single-occupancy property of similar square footage.

Student Lets

Students offer an excellent opportunity to gain maximum rental potential from a property. Again, this is similar to an HMO in that you may want to divide up a property into smaller units or rent out on a room-by-room basis. Student rentals are generally in very high demand, and you are almost guaranteed to find tenants. Your income will be dependant on term times, so consider using the summer holidays for any refurbishment works that need doing.

Holiday Lets

Buying to rent out in a popular holiday area can provide an excellent yield during peak seasons. As you will generally be letting on a nightly, weekly, or fortnightly basis, the price can be much higher than if you were to rent out a property permanently.

You will need to consider any downtime, such as periods where there are less likely to be visitors to the area such as during the winter months.

You will also need to market the property continually, and also deal with housekeeping whenever visitors leave.

Locked Out of the Property Market? Go Abroad

A key focus of my blog is Financial Literacy/Money. Purchasing a home is the greatest purchase and investment many people will ever make. In many places across the country, the housing markets have become exclusive to the point where people can get in. One option is purchase property abroad. The following contributed post is thus entitled, Locked Out of the Property Market? Go Abroad.

* * *

Back in the days, our parents were able to buy their first home for next to nothing. Getting their first job was a fairly easy achievement as well and, sadly, something that many young adults find to be a much bigger challenge.

While some people are able to get a hold of their very first house or apartment with the help of their family or a degree in a field that needs more candidates, most of us are still struggling to make ends meet – and the real estate dream seems further away than ever.

Luckily, there are options out there and you won’t necessarily have to be renting a flat until you’re in your mid-forties either. Here is a handful of ways to achieve the property dream abroad instead of in a difficult market at home so that you can make a passive income that way – or just become an expat instead.

First: Research the country

If you have never considered buying property abroad before, you’re probably at a loss in terms of where to even start. Where you decide to invest should, of course, depend on a few factors: how much money you have to invest, whether or not you’re looking for a tropical holiday home, and how profitable it is for foreigners to invest in the country.

Some of them are up-and-coming and may give you a decent profit if you manage to hang on to it for a few years or even a short decade. Others, however, may seem tropical and dreamy but make it tricky for foreigners to invest. That’s why you need to do some decent research first and consider your own intentions as well.

Start by checking out this site to learn more about the best countries to invest in, at the moment, and keep in mind that the political climate and the country’s general economy may affect how great of an investment you’ve made.

Research is the keyword here – and the more you know, the better prepared you’ll be when it’s time to make a decision.

Next: Figure out your mortgage options

While a lack of knowledge tends to be the first thing that puts most foreign investors-to-be off from a real estate project abroad, to begin with, they’ll often be thrown off when they try to find funding for their new property.

Keep in mind, however, that some countries are a lot cheaper than others and, if you’re able to, you’ll save yourself a massive amount of hassle if you can just pay everything off at once. Consider your inheritance options, for example, and see if you’re able to get some of it in advance – that way, you might be able to buy a smaller flat without having to take up a loan at all.

That’s the kind of stuff that will make you quite a bit of money when you rent it out as you’ll only have maintenance expenses on the property.

If not, it’s a good idea to ask your parents if they can take out a mortgage on their property and lend you this money – either as an inheritance in advance or just as a pure loan. It will be much easier for you to pay them back once you’re able to rent your new property out, after all, and their generation can start to feel a bit less guilty about the terrible real estate market they’ve left us in.

Have a look at this article on mortgage loans as well, by the way, to learn more about your options when buying property abroad. There are other ways to obtain a real estate overseas besides from depending on your parents or using the lump sum you’ve saved up, though, so consider other options such as financing it through a bank here at home.

While it may be difficult to get a mortgage loan for a property abroad through a bank in your home country, it’s not necessarily impossible. Do your research before you settle on anything final and keep in mind that buying a property at home would have been just as difficult – and much more expensive.

Remember to read up on whether or not you’re allowed to rent this property out as well. Some countries, such as Spain, depend on tourism and make a large amount of money from accommodation during the high season. It just doesn’t make sense for them if foreign investors step in and rent out their own property for next to nothing through Airbnb or similar.

Research, ask a professional for help and keep in mind that you’ll always get there in the end.

How to Know if a Property is a Good Investment or Not

Two of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. Many people have gotten wealthy by investing in real estate. No matter which niche of real estate investing you get into, a crucial skill is identifying which properties are good investments and which ones are bad investments. The following contributed post is therefore entitled, How to Know if a Property is a Good Investment or Not.

* * *

If you want to buy a property, then there are a lot of different things that you need to think about. You need to think about the location of the property, the condition of it and even the price. Only when you have been able to take all of this into consideration, can you then begin to really make sure that the property is the right one for you.

Know the Numbers

Unless something catastrophic happens between the time your offer is accepted, and when you close, there isn’t a single reason why your loan shouldn’t go through. Before you start searching online, you have to make sure that you speak with a mortgage lender. You also need to make sure that you know what you can qualify for, and even how much you are spending on a monthly basis. When you do this, you can then begin to make good decisions that won’t impact your finances too much.


Sure, it’s great when you can buy a huge family home for a very affordable price. If the location isn’t right however then you shouldn’t even look into it as an option. Location is such a huge factor when you are choosing your property. Remember that you can change almost any aspect of the home, whether it involves adding an extra bedroom or even converting the loft to get extra space, but you can never pick up the home and move it somewhere else. If you can’t seem to find a great location then look into the properties that Drew Fasy has to offer.

Extra Cost

When buyers are working hard to try and set up their budget, they remember to account for things such as insurance payments, tax and even their mortgage. You might not remember to account for things like gas, cable or even electric however and this can really impact your budget. You also need to take into account things like landscaping and property maintenance. You can minimise this cost by working hard to find a property that needs very little improvement, therefore saving you some money. That being said, some hidden costs just can’t be avoided. And while there can be aspects of a property that don’t require many changes, this gives you scope to put your stamp on it, either through exterior renovation or curb appeal alterations, or giving the outside of the property a minuscule makeover, you don’t necessarily have to invest much.


If finding the perfect property means going over budget, then you really do need to reconsider. This is especially the case if you can find a property that is near enough exactly what you want for a significantly lower price. Sometimes compromises need to be made because if you don’t then you may end up overspending on something that really isn’t worth that much money. By being smart with your money, you can be sure to really help yourself and you can also do your finances a favour too.

So, there are plenty of ways for you to really make the most out of your investment, and by putting in the work you can be sure to find a property that suits your needs. The internet is a fantastic place for you to start when you doing your property research, so don’t be afraid to compare neighbourhoods online.
