It is easy to get the renovation wrong if you’re not careful, either by overcapitalising, undercapitalising or failing to plan properly. In this edition, we share with you ways to avoid being a statistic. We also analyse the national property downturn and explain why homeowners should not be too concerned. Finally, if you are an investor, find out how to attract and keep good tenants in a market where renters have the balance of power.
