What types of properties should an investor avoid?

There is a saying that real estate, is slow to forgive and investing in bad property deals can take a long time to recover from.

It is much better to have no deal at all than a bad deal.

Here are some tips from our property strategist partners, to help you avoid some of these more risky investments:

·        Avoid properties with bad lay-outs, they are harder to sell

·        Don’t buy a property without a bath- you won’t be able to market the property to families

·        Beware of garage conversions- they are not always done well and will not sell well in areas where garages are desirable.

·        Avoid properties that are backing up to something negative and undesirable like power lines, mobile towers, strip clubs, train tracks etc

·        Properties with structural issues- Never close on a property without engaging a structural engineer –especially if the property is on an incline.

·        Don’t buy the biggest property on the street. It will be harder to sell. The bigger you go- price per square foot goes down. Remember it’s all about location

·        Always make sure you have the data on a property to back up your decision to invest. NEVER buy a property based on the emotional response it may trigger.

·        Don’t buy a one bedroom/1 bathroom house. They are very hard to rent out. You will be eliminating a huge part of the market.

·        Trust your gut- it if feels bad, it’s probably a bad deal.
