Flipping Investment Property in Preston

Flipping property in Preston


Flipping property is when we advise clients to buy a Preston property below market value, renovate it and then make a profit by selling it at a higher price, all within a few months, and often before the Preston market has a time to react to the renovation.


The Flipping Strategy in Preston


Investment property flipping in Preston is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Preston real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Preston real estate.


What is distressed Preston property:


  • Preston property in need of renovation
  • Preston real estate with a change of purpose and use
  • Oversold Preston property
  • Bank repossessions in Preston

Put simply, long term investors in Preston purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.


Calculate profit that you make from Preston investment property flipping:


Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Preston property purchase price: $220,000

Renovation costs: $20,000

Other costs: $25,000

Property sale price: $400,000

Profit: $135,000


Experienced property developers in Preston use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Preston projects.


The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Preston property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
