Armchair Investing / Investment Property Search

Buying property as an Investment can be rewarding and profitable – if it is done correctly. Even with the all of the advice and information that we can give you online, any purchase needs to be made wisely in order to avoid the very real possibility of making the wrong choice. You also need to source a tangible product to invest in!

Special Offer for visitors: £250 cashback - click here for details conjunction with TYGRA Property Finding, Design & Investment has created an Investment vehicle which enables the buyer to have a tailored service for investing. Listed below is the full range of services that we offer, you can pick and choose which services you think would best serve your personal circumstances.

The area analysis is provided by and designed to give you the fullest information available on the area in which you have chosen to invest. This will include amongst other things: average price history, anticipated growth, major employers in the area, information on places of higher education (if relevant) and travel and transport links.

Property sourcing is a full time job in itself. There are thousands of active property investors in the country and there is normally a very long queue of them waiting for their next investment. We have spent a long time creating good relationships and related contacts within the property industry, which enables us to keep our buyers at the front of the line for hot properties. Once instructed we will start making contact with our local agents in the designated area - to see what is available to the market at that time. Within 1 week we will provide you with a shortlist of properties that match the relevant specification.

Once you have selected a property to buy, you may like us to deal with the negotiation process for you. We can be the main point of contact for the agents/vendors on your behalf and our knowledge of the negotiation process will normally enable us to bargain the price down further than may ordinarily have been possible without our assistance.

A large number of deals fall through during the conveyancing process. Once an offer has been agreed, it is very important to dedicate the time necessary to making sure that all parties concerned do not take their foot off the gas. We can oversee this process, making sure that there are no communication breakdowns and that everything is being done to achieve a timely completion.

Finally, if you simply don’t have the time to arrange for the rental or resale of your property, then we are quite happy to take over the final process for you. We will make sure that your property is being marketed effectively and continuously until a suitable deal has been agreed.

Fixed Price Property Refurbishment

There is no doubt that properties in need of modernisation will more often than not provide the best investments. You will normally be able to buy these properties at quite a lot less than their modernized counterparts – although the differential has narrowed considerably over the years. For investors who have little or no knowledge of property refurbishment, this area of expertise is crucial to your survival as a successful investor. Costs can (and normally do) spiral out of control and you may be left with an unforeseen nightmare at your new doorstep.

Upon initial inspection of the condition of the property, we will be able to tell you the average refurbishment cost expected - the estimated price is due to possible extra works needing to be done in order to bring the property up to maximum potential. As with all of our services we can offer a basic or a premier service (Related costs will reflect the quality of the product installed). The differences are solely in the products that we install and their related costs. In both cases we will take responsibility for the entire project from beginning to end and simply hand the keys back to you once we have finished the job.
