Q: I am interested in buying a condo/apartment to fix up and sell. What are some of the areas in Vancouver and outer areas that will give me the best return on my investment?

A: In fixing up a property for resale, it is less important that you pick the right area … as asking the right questions:

– Do you know how to fix things up?

– Make sure you fix up the right things.

– Don’t pay too much for the property. You make the most money on the day you buy.

– Learn the art of “lipsticking” a property.
