Sketty Renovation Project

A Sketty Renovation Project

Firstly, thank you to James Matthews of JM BUILDING CONTRACTORS, for coming along and allowing us to video him (on our phone) about the amazing renovation project he has been working on over the past 2 years:

Secondly, we hope that if you are inspired to take on a renovation project, that you will contact us in the first instance and let us guide you to the right project for your budget & skill-set.

Thirdly, watch James talk about his first renovation project and take a look at the amazing before and after photos, from his work at 26 Beaconsfield Way, Sketty.

James put his unique stamp on the property, which he purchased in March 2017, opting for a large open plan design with a large rear extension.  Due to his tight budget, it was imperative for James to rely upon his relationship with Alison, the associate valuer at Sketty office, who went out on a limb to ensure that James got hold of the property for the best price, in order to utilise his savings for the work!

James and his family moved into their newly renovated home in March 2018 and are now working on the garden & garage, before the project is complete and the property can be sold.   Here are some of the photos from the project so far.

Dawsons hammer home the success of auctions

This year has been a hugely successful year for Dawsons Auctions! Whether you are looking to sell a property with potential or purchase that perfect project property an auction could be for you.

In the past year Dawsons has been taking project properties and selling them to the highest bidder with great results.

An increased demand for both vendors and purchasers has been proved in the yearly results. In the past 12 months Dawsons Auctions has been hugely successful – 91% of properties on the auction book sold! At the last auction on 7th October, 94% of properties sold.

For a vendor looking for a speedy sale and certainty that a buyer won’t pull out auctions are the way to go. Once the hammer falls, the buyer puts down a 10% deposit and is given one month to pay the 90% of the cost.

Auction is also the perfect environment for buyers who are looking for a project property that they can then live in, convert for a rental income, or fix and re-sell.

“Buying a house or flat at a property auction is a much more transparent way to buy a house. You’ll see other bids as they are made, rather than having to take the estate agent’s word for it,” said Julie Lawry of Dawsons Auctions.

With the last auction for 2015 just finished, Dawsons Auctions has no intention of slowing down next year. To find out what all the excitement is about join us for next auction in 2016, 24th February at 3:00pm at the Swansea Marriott Hotel.
