All properties have a maximum value that
can be achieved which is based on their location.
If your purchase price and renovations
costs exceed this amount- then you have over-capitalised.
One of the most common ways that investors
over-capitalise is by spending too much on fixtures, technology, inclusions,
white-goods and building materials like Italian marble etc.
To avoid over-spending, investors should
cater to what current trends are in their area and devise a strategic budget
and stick to it.
Also, always get a detailed costing of
works that you want to be carried out.
Add the amount to your purchase price and
consider if you would be able to sell the property for this figure, as this is
a good benchmark to establish whether or not you are over-capitalising.
When searching for an investment property
that you want to renovate, ask an experienced agent what the property would be
worth once it has been renovated.
This should determine how much you should
allocate to spend on the renovation.
Also, look for low-cost ways to spruce up
the property and try to do as much yourself.
