Below Market Value: BMV
Below Market Value, BMV, means that you acquire a property at a price that is lower than others pay for a similar property. There are many reasons for a vendor wanting to sell a property below the average market price, such as they need a quick sale to release funds, there maybe a relationship breakdown or economic instability and the vendor wants to have cash.
In different areas of the UK you can find different amounts of BMV properties. Tungsten MG concentrates in Kent and the South East of England is notorious for having limited BMV properties, so it makes our searches more creative and networking is key.

Commercial to Residential: C2R is the conversion of a commercial unit, such as a pub, office, retail unit to a place to live. There has been a big rise of C2R due to
