Property development and investment books
While we try to be comprehensive in what we cover on the diydata.com website, we don't (yet!!) cover everything, so here are a few books of further advice for making profits from property development and investment.
The Complete Guide to Property Development for the Small Investor covers every stage of property development. Including both practical ‘how-to’ advice and important guidance on making a profit from property, this new edition constitutes an essential handbook that is both comprehensive and user-friendly.
Containing practical checklists and extensive details on useful addresses and websites, the book also provides updates on essential legislative changes that will have an impact on both new and experienced developers. This fully revised and updated third edition includes vital new information on: changes to tax/VAT incentives; the impact of the credit crunch on the UK property market (and the potential opportunities if offers); the rise and fall (and potential rise again) of the buy-to-let market; and the latest rules and regulations affecting both landlords and tenants.
A book which offers advice to those wishing to make a profit from the property market. It contains information on the purchase of land and commercial property, including the raising of finance and the tax implications involved.
Property, whether you are buying a house to live in or to let, represents an enormous financial commitment. This book, by bricks-and-mortar expert Michael Holmes, will show you how to maximise the value of your investment and will reveal the kind of home improvements that make economic sense. Authoritative and detailed text covers all major aspects of home improvement, including conservatories, loft and basement conversions, double-glazing, central heating, kitchens and bathrooms. With sound advice and clear, comprehensive charts and tables, it adds up to an indispensable handbook for any homeowner who is thinking of building on to, extending, altering or selling their property. No other book gives such sensible, practical or authoritative advice on improvements to your home that will really make a difference to the house itself and to its market value.
