Many business moguls feel that investing in property is a smart move to make. After all, there is a lot of money to be made from bricks and mortar.

1. Renovate and Sell

Many people believe that they can buy a rundown property and turn it into a gold mine. But, if you don’t have any construction experience, this can end up being an enormous drain on your personal finances. Wannabe investors should seek to buy property that has been repossessed. This is an excellent way of getting a house cheap, but still has room for making money when it comes to resale.

Of course, you should aim to make the rooms within the house look more homely. A lick of neutral paint and a new bathroom and kitchen shouldn’t cost much more than £8000. So, if you are keen to make an investment and see a return calculate your budget and research current property resale values in the area.

2. Buy to Let

Buying to let is a very popular way of seeing a return on investment in the property sector. When you look at property, you need to think of the demographic of the area. A one bedroom apartment will not be sufficient if the location is something of a family area. To get more room for families, aim to look for a 3 bedroom terraced house for sale. Make sure that you are near schools and other amenities.

If you are looking for property to buy to let in the city, apartments are an excellent option. Many people cannot afford rental prices in the city when it comes to houses. Think logically and research your buy to let market. This way you are sure to a return when it comes to rental values. You should seek to pay the mortgage and have some left in the bank as profit.

3. Location, Location, Location

Whether you are choosing to renovate or whether you are looking to rent, a lot can be said for choosing a prime location. In the main, you need to seek out areas that are central to amenities. Shops, schools and good rail links are all vital to buyers and sellers of property. This means that you need to find an area that suits the needs of those who are in the rental market.

Aim to study OFSTED reports in the area. Make sure that hospitals and healthcare facilities in the area are in good repute. All of these factors are favourable to both buyers and sellers. Research your location before you commit to buying. This is one of the most important factors for investors when it comes to seeing a lofty return on investment.

"Money is not an invention of the State. It is not the product of a legislative act. Even the sanction of political authority is not necessary for its existence. Certain commodities came to be money quite naturally, as the result of economic relationships that were independent of the power of the State."

Carl Menger - the founder of the Austrian school of economics
