    Considering buying a bungalow renovation

    Considering buying a bungalow renovation 21st May 19 at 7:19 PM
    My partner and I are considering selling our nice new new build house and buying a bungalow, which needs renovation work doing. This will include reroofing, complete redesign of the interior walls, new electrics, gas, extension at the back and extending the loft conversion. I have never done this type of thing before and m therefore a little apprehensive. Can you give me any advice where I should start? The house was at the auction several times, however was withdrawn always prior to bidding. It was then shown as sold, however the estate agent said an old couple wanted to buy it, then realised a lot of work was needed. I also spoke to the auction house prior to this, who said there was possible subsidence problems. Since then a surveyor has done a survey and said that there does not appear to be a subsidence problem.

    Any thoughts would be greatful

    Rennovating home have several benefits such as It increases home value, more living space, adds comfort, less future maintainence and personalization. Remodeling home structures like your floors, bathroom, kitchen or bedroom will provide added comfort to your home. Few days ago one of my friend has rennovated the home with new structures and also with electrical wiring

    Opportunities may be missed, especially when they arrive disguised as hard work.
