Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian have very generous proportions, including high ceilings and large windows. Not surprisingly, demand is very high among tenants, and splitting period houses into flats can be very lucrative. Read on to find out how to get started.
Know your market
Not every Victorian conversion will be sold or let to a professional. Your property’s location dictates your target market is and it makes sense to pitch your property to the group most likely to buy or rent in your area. Contrast the properties found on the websites of West London estate agents like Domus Nova to those of agents in parts of South London; the buildings are similar but the quality of finishes, fixtures and fittings differs greatly. Don’t waste money or cut corners in such a way that your property will not suit your market.
