Spanish homes for New Year renovation projects

If you fancy the challenge of creating your perfect home tailor-made for all your requirements, Lucas Fox offers a plethora of renovation projects for sale. Before you take a look at our hand-picked list, here are some top tips to consider from Lucas Fox Partner Tom Maidment whose clients have undertaken numerous renovation projects over the years:

“First and foremost, always establish your budget upfront and monitor it daily throughout the renovation process. Put contingencies in place and expect to use them. Projects rarely keep on track when it comes to budgeting. If you are renovating for profit, you need to to think carefully about strategically targeting what you want to spend your money on and then the return it gives you. There isn’t one simple solution to what renovation adds value and what doesn’t. It will depend on the property, its location, your target market and then what you decide to do with it afterwards. I would also suggest getting professional advice – even if you have to pay for it, look at it as an insurance policy. A carefully planned renovation can really add a lot a value to a property – but it doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune!”
