There’s an important fact about property The Relocatable House Co. has known and used for a long time and that is the simple method of relocating houses to improve property values and rental yields.

While most investors and home buyers think that they can’t have their own home or afford an investment property because of economics, The Relocatable House Co. are helping their clients to achieve their investment and home ownership goals with their simple proven formula.

House relocation will be the smartest thing you ever do and the team at The Relocatable House Co. want to help you on the path to achieve your property goals.

Here’s why relocating a house will be the smartest thing you ever do:

  • You can massively increase your rental yields or create large development profits by relocating an existing house for a fraction of a rebuild cost.
  • Best of all the process is simple. Simple, but not easy. Sadly, without the right knowledge the experience can turn into a nightmare.

Making a profit relocating a house is no different from baking a cake – you need a proven recipe and a simple stepby- step process to guarantee you get the result you are after.
