Fagen Point Rd, Lake Macquarie, NSW


$76,500 GP in 4 months (excludes purchasing costs and tax). With the intention to update and hold this property to rent out, the renovation was completed in 6 weeks (paying trades-people mostly) at a total cost of approx $41,000. Formal revaluation on behalf of CBA for refinancing showed an almost immediate gross profit of $76,500.
 
Tim says "One of the keys to success was good advice - and also good tradies". He also sights 'Heaps of pre-planning' as one the reasons the project was successful.

Tim found his Renovation Action Plan especially useful for keeping his renovation on track - and in particular, on budget. With his finite 'to-do' checklist of what we recommended he do to the property, there was no risk of 'over-cooking' (and therefore over-spending) the renovation.
