Savvy landlords recognise that the West London property market stays in really good shape even when the housing market in the rest of the country appears to be on a slide. This is why they consider buying new property in West London with a view to then sell it on at a later date. If you are interested in this sort of process then you may want to think about buying something very modest and turning it into something fantastic.
This is a great way of making money on a London property. If you are buying to sell then you are in no hurry to get work done simply because you already have a place to live and you are not counting on the new property being completed ASAP. Instead, you can afford to take your time over things.
It is a very sensible move to get a team of residential architects in to do a bit of magic with the property. It may look modest at first, but with some professional treatment you could turn your residential property into a house that will attract a lot of attention on the market. This is when you can expect to make some serious money on the property market.
