Will it be a good investment?

The questions buyers bring to every property they inspect are; Will it be a good investment? Will I get reasonable capital appreciation when and if I sell?

Uppermost in people’s minds is finding a property that suits their needs, but the underlying rationale is nearly always investment potential and, justifiably so. With inflation eating away at salaries and savings, housing is one of the few commodities, if wisely chosen, that can keep the consumer ahead.

Buyers can make informed decisions once they have researched the selling prices of a large enough sample of properties. Understanding the pattern of sales activity and not buying too far above the median price for the area in which you are shopping, are all key points for making a wise choice.

The worst house in the best street is a real estate cliché. Such homes can usually be improved without over capitalizing, provided you know what prices are being achieved for similar properties in the area and don’t exceed that limit for renovations or extensions.
