Using a combination of automated programs, manual searches and direct contact with estate agents, we trawl the market to discover the properties for sale in London that need some level of work.
We never stop looking to keep our subscribers informed about the latest London houses, flat and developments that need renovation, modernisation, refurbishment or cosmetic updating.
All the properties have a London postcode, are for sale through an estate agent and need some level of work. It could be a major renovation or development project or just a cosmetic update for a quick turnaround.
We upload details of each property as soon as they come onto the market including a direct link to the estate agent’s webpage for each property. Then it is over to you to contact the agent to arrange a viewing in the normal manner.
The properties are uploaded onto our website five days a week. You can search and filter the database, save multiple searches for quick access when you login and flag your favourite properties.
Set up a daily or weekly email alert to be notified when a new property has been added that matches your criteria.
The vast majority of properties on our database are for sale through estate agents. Auctions are also a valuable resource for renovation opportunities so we provide subscribers with a calendar listing the upcoming residential property auctions taking place in the capital.
Links to each catalogue are uploaded as soon as they become available.
We offer monthly (£20 per month) and annual subscriptions (£120 per year) for access to the properties, auction calendar and email alerts service.
Payments are processed each month/year until you cancel. Cancellation is a simple process completed at anytime through your account dashboard. A simple and secure online registration process, no hidden fees and no complicated contracts.
