Chapel St, Banyo


What wonderful example of a quick and clever renovation with guidance from Hotspace. Spot the differences - not many are there? ... But they are clever and design-based which is why they work (and that is our specialty!). This client had lived in the home for a number of years, so this renovation was done just before putting the house on the market. The result was a profit of approx $134,000 (before selling costs, legal fees and tax) from investing approx $40,000 in the renovation.
 
Before consulting with Hotspace, this client was going to only do minimal work to the exterior. Our advice was to create a great outdoor space (including the addition of a bi-fold door) - and what a difference it has made.
 
A few simple changes to the kitchen really modernises it and makes it much more appealing to the market that this vendor was targeting.
