As property prices keep rising, they effectively push down rental returns. Because of this more landlords are now trying to profit from refurbishments.

The strategy of brick-sand-mortar involves buying homes that are basically run-down, but not in ruins and quickly increasing their value by undertaking a radical refurbishment. This can take the form of a straight refurbishment, room by room or some remodelling.

More and more landlords are now looking to buy property in need of major work, thereby getting the property at a substantial discount, then undertaking a full refurbishment – possibly even adding more rooms in the process – before putting it on the rental market and achieving not just greater returns from revenue but also in capital value on the property itself.
