Property Devaluers Revealed

NAEA Propertymark has revealed the worst devaluers of a property.

‘Installing solar panels. The problem with technology is that it ages quickly, and it can be expensive to upgrade. Solar panels can also appear as unsightly and unattractive.’

‘Swimming pools. Although great fun for a weekend or two in the summer, swimming pools in Britain aren’t usually considered an attractive house feature. They’re expensive to maintain and use up a lot of space.’

‘Over personalisation. If your taste is particularly colourful or bold, it might be worth re-decorating before you start to market your home. Typically, modestly decorated homes are most desirable.’

‘Planning permission and building regulations. If you have had any works carried out while you’ve been living in the property, such as extensions or conversions, make sure you obtained appropriate planning permission and building regulations, and have access to these documents.’

‘Darkened rooms. If you have two identical properties, and one is bright and airy while the other is dark and dingy, nine times out of the ten, the brighter one will be worth more, because it’s more desirable.’

Upcycling Profits

If you watch the Apprentice, you may have seen an example of upcycling – the process of reusing unwanted items by converting them into something better. In this case, it was old clothes, scarves and ties which were transformed into new garments which sold at eye watering prices.

Upcycling is something of a trend, appealing as it does to the modern pre-occupation with environmental issues and reducing waste. We recently came across Dutch company Dead jeans who have taken this on board. They recognised that people can grow quite attached to their old jeans and that when they wear out, not all the garment is useless. With that in mind, if you carefully cut out the back pocket of your beloved denims, the company will fashion it into a felt lined phone sock. Price is a far from frugal 30 Euros. Not bad for the company when you figure out that someone else provided the materials!

So…could you bring a pair of old denims back to life in some way or other, which would yield a profit. Or could you upcycle some other garment? We’d love to hear how you get on with this, although anyone who decides to try something with old underpants will be excluded from the newsletter without warning!

Dear Streewise Customer,

 A few weeks ago, I received an email from a guy making an astonishing claim. He claimed to be making £3,000-£6,000 a month using a gambling system which, when used correctly, could never lose!

Needless to say, there were all sorts of questions flying around my

       . Is there really no risk?

       . Did he have proof?

       . Can anyone do it?

       . How is it done exactly?

  For the answers take a look here:

I’ve seen detailed video evidence of this being done and it’s no exaggeration  to say that this is the holy grail. If you hate losing, you’re going to love this.

Take a look now. 

Kind Regards
