Planning Permission: Does the original barn you want to convert have planning permission to be renovated into your dream house? You may need to hire an architect to draw up plans and submit them to your local planning office for approval. Check whether there is outline planning permission already and also check whether permission has been turned down before.
Local Area: Often, property not originally intended for use as a dwelling has unusual or exclusive surroundings. It is worth checking what these are such as a nuclear bunker could be great for a conversion, but very isolated. A railway building to convert could be close to a live railway andbeprone to noise etc.

Condition: Make sure you give a good description of the condition of the barn or building so buyers are aware. It is important to list as much as you know about the property.
Potential: Highlight the potential for the barn conversion, include plans if you have planning permission or outline planning permission to give the potential buyer an idea of what it could be like. Include information like the square footage of the barn, details about the plot, local area, if mains/electricity is available, period of the property/building, unique features and overall size.
Photos: Add as many photos as you can to provide as much insight into the property as possible.
