London Property Developers Benefit from our Removals Services
House flipping has become a regular sight on our TV’s over the last decade, with numerous shows dedicated to people renovating and selling properties. Although it’s much harder work than these shows tend to highlight, it can be a fulfilling way to earn money. Moreover, it’s very satisfying to see the project through from the beginning to the end result. In fact, some people like the property they renovate so much that they end up living there.
While most major UK cities have an active property development industry, not many can compete with London. The capital is the ideal place for renovating to flip houses, even though the housing market has seen a small decline in property value. Anthony Ward Thomas is the perfect company for property developers to partner with when they undertake a new house flipping project.
How to Start Flipping Houses in London –
Although there are no unnecessary steps during the process of entering the property development sector, this one is a deal-breaker of sorts. You’ll need to have a decent amount of capital to begin your house flipping venture. So, if you’re planning on house flipping as a full-time career, you should start saving while you’re still working in your current job.
The next thing you’ll need to do is plenty of research and planning. This might not be a new thing for you if you have some experience in construction or property renovations. However, this doesn’t mean you can wing it and play fast and loose. Start by outlining and drafting a business plan which includes a budget. Additionally, you should consider doing some networking and have subcontractors ready to contact.
Then, we move onto the meatier part of house flipping – finding the houses and apartments you’ll be developing. Auctions will be somewhere you’ll find suitable properties to buy and fix up. And there are plenty taking place all around London weekly. Furthermore, make sure you seek advice from online articles before buying at auction or elsewhere to avoid any newbie mistakes. If the auction house posts information on the properties before the bid, make sure you read up on them.
A final point that you’ll need to be well-read in is regulations. You need to understand them before undertaking any development project. If you’re unsure where to start, contact your local municipality and request building regulations and information. For the most part, avoid buying listed buildings. They’re a regulatory nightmare, and there are strict limitations on converting them.
Using Removals and Storage Services –
When the time arrives, and you’re ready to begin the development of your property, you’ll need to find subcontractors and partner companies to work with. Anthony Ward Thomas has a range of removals services that suit every type of home refurbishment or renovation project. Many professional home developers and interior designers use our Small Vans and Self Storage services as part of each project they undertake.
Our Small Moves is a premium version of a man with a van package that aims to attain the highest standard of service delivery. With this package, you have two Anthony Ward Thomas team members at your disposal and the use of a vehicle. All your equipment and materials can be offloaded and collected at the start and end of each working day.
And to compliment your man and van service, it’s always a good idea to have somewhere secure to store your tools and building materials. That’s why renting a self storage unit through Anthony Ward Thomas becomes a sound investment. You won’t have to worry about issues such as water or fire damage, in addition to having protection from theft.
There is no lease to worry about – you only need to keep your storage unit for the duration of your project. Many of our customers keep their units long after their refurbishment or renovation project ends because of the convenience storage provides. Moreover, their next project is just around the corner, and they’ll need to have somewhere they can store materials.
