3 Tips To Buying On A Budget

Budget Tips

As a reputable property advisory firm, we at WPG Advisory know how to help your budget go further by searching for the right property, evaluating its value, and negotiating the purchase price on your behalf. We have been proven to help our customers save time and money to achieve the best possible outcome.

With that in mind, we thought we’d share three pieces of advice to help you buy the right property on a limited budget for the most value gains possible.

1. Be Firm On Your Priorities and Non-Negotiables

There are many nice-to-have things that might come up as you view different properties. However, do not be sidetracked by these. Always remember the priorities and non-negotiables you outlined in advance. These must-haves might include location, size, types of amenities available, and proximity to essential services.

Knowing and understanding these priorities in advance will ensure that your search for properties is focused and aligns with your needs, preventing you from being swayed by nice-to-haves that are not necessarily essential.

2. Research and Explore Up-And-Coming Areas

Purchasing in well-established areas is a safe bet but can be more costly. To make your budget stretch further, consider investing in emerging and up-and-coming neighbourhoods where property prices might be more affordable and are set to rise in the future, giving you a better return on your investment.

Look for areas with potential for growth. They can be identified by new infrastructure projects, revitalisation initiatives, and improvements to local amenities. Prioritise these types of areas that might be currently undervalued, as these could have the potential for significant appreciation in the future.

As an experienced property advisory, we have our finger on the pulse of market trends and can provide significant help in identifying such opportunities.

3. Don’t Discount Property Renovation or Redevelopment Potential

Properties that might be a little worse for wear but have renovation and redevelopment potential could be of significant value down the line, even if there are upfront costs to consider. Properties with significant cosmetic issues or that are underused can be significantly more affordable, even if you have to invest a little bit of money after purchase to renovate. This allows you to reap significant valuation rewards in the future as the property appreciates.

Evaluating the cost of potential renovations or improvements against the overall budget is necessary in such cases, and it is important to have a realistic estimate of what kinds of investments might be required and whether the potential return on investment is worth your while.

WPG Advisory can help you significantly in determining these factors and making a wise decision.
