How to Climb the Housing Ladder

~ This is a featured post. ~

For many people, simply getting a foot on the first rung of the housing ladder is a challenge that can take years and a great deal of patience and sacrifice to achieve. From owning your first property, though, its a matter of following some simple and methodological steps in order to continue to climb, reinvesting your cash in larger or more elegant and desirable properties after having renovated or otherwise improved your previous property. Here are a few things youll need to consider when making your own way through the housing market - up that property ladder.

Profit On Your Property
Each property you own should increase in price while in your habitation. This should happen incrementally as house prices inflate, but you can help this along by making small changes to the house - modernizing and renovating, or perhaps landscaping the garden - thatll cost far less than the profits the work accrues after the sale.

Remember Location
You may invest in your first property or two for convenience in terms of location - selecting the place thats closest to work, the town center, or friends and family. Location, though, is one of the more important factors for long-term property investment, and can be a real predictor of huge price fluctuation after an area becomes more desirable for upper-middle-class people.

Sell Up Quick
Waive those real estate agent fees by selling your property by yourself; create real estate flyers to publicize your home on social media, emails and in physical leaflets, and perhaps create your homes very own Instagram page for prospective buyers. If youre good with people and good at setting up your house to be desirable to buy, you should find this step easy, dependent on the ambition with which you set your valuation. On this front, its best to be realistic and not hopeful.

Always Go Up
Once youve sold a property, its important that you repeat the process but with a larger cash investment with a larger expected return. Theres no climbing of the property ladder in simply buying and selling homes for a slight profit each time without reinvesting that profit - thats property stagnation. Take all your cash and what youve learned about location and selling techniques to make your next purchase wiser and more profitable.

Learn and Grow
When youre renovating or otherwise adjusting a home, you can save an enormous amount of money by doing the bulk of the work by yourself and without the expensive help of a hired handyman. In order to cut these significant costs, youll need to practice your DIY skills militantly, checking guides, watching YouTube tutorials, and examining your technique to make sure your work is efficient and tidy. The more you work on this and the more you understand DIY habits and techniques, the more youll see the possibilities in a home for you to play with to increase its value.

So there you have it, some steps to help you climb up the housing ladder. Be patient yet ambitious, and youll find that over time youre moving into more and more illustrious places without breaking the bank.
