2008 delivered a disastrous year to the property market with funds disappearing, buyers losing all confidence, developers almost going bust and sellers struggling to get viewings let alone sell!

For some, lack of a deposit to buy or unfortunately being temporarily in negative equity may stop some people from moving. However for many, 2010 will bring some clarity to which direction the property market will go. And of course for those that are considering renting, the picture is already clear: most rents are going up!

For self builders and renovators, this year has been one of the best.  With land prices dropping, a significant increase in the number of available building plots, great offers and deals on building materials, coupled with the availability of low deposit finance, it’s never been a better time to build or renovate!

So, whether you're a buyer, seller, renovator, self builder or renter, here are my top tips for anyone thinking about carrying out a property project in 2010!
