DH and I really fancy selling our house, and buying somewhere that needs some work, and re-selling it (hopefully) for a profit, but we are nervous. We know it will be hard work, lots of stress etc. but we really want to do this a couple of times, to try and get ourselves up the Property Ladder a bit quicker so we can move back to Milton Keynes (which is where we are from originally) or to the coast somewhere down South. The house prices are so much more there, and we want to move somewhere nicer but don't want to downgrade our house size, so we need some extra cash somehow and we think that developing a few houses might help us out a bit. Has anyone done this? Got any stories to share? Any advice?
