Although light in nature, the improvement works were designed to bring the property up to an excellent standard. The works were completed quickly and within budget.
The short term bridging finance enabled the brothers to acquire an uninhabitable property within a tight deadline. In addition, the typical 12 month term, gave them time to complete the works and properly market the property to achieve their desired selling price and a successful start to their property investment career.
