Where can I find run down properties in need of refurbishment and renovation?

I am looking for properties that have not been looked after so that I can get them for cheap prices. I have contacted the local agents but nothing comes up. What is the best way to find run down properties? Auctions?

  • Auction. If you find a ready supply, with a sea view, can you let me know?

  • You are looking for something that everyone else wants! Most applicants want something cheap that they can put their own stamp on, or an investment opportunity. I dont think anyone has ever asked for something expensive. Talk to the agents again, show you are serious, have the funds ready and the ability to move quickly. look at website daily, try auctions, speak to agents that deal with repossessions.

  • Callaways Estate & Lettings Agents have various properties that you're looking for but they get snapped up very quickly. Don't be fobbed off by Estate Agents, get to know someone really well in the office and if you're a serious buyer (and can prove you have ready funds) you'll find something soon enough. You can also contact the Empty Homes Officer at Local Councils for details of their schemes.

  • Repolist has the UK's largest selection of properties that require refurbishment, as well as repossessions. The system is fully automated so it is always up to date. You can search in the map function. This means that if you are only interested in refurbs with a sea view you can quickly obtain a list of those available. I hope this helps.
