Pine Road, Orewa, NZ


$150,000 profit (before tax)! Here's a great example that might inspire you if you're planning to renovate for a profit. Our clients (a Joint Venture partnership) bought this property for $420,000. They contacted us at the beginning of the project and for one up-front fee (under $2000 for this property, even being a dual occupancy), we told them exactly what they should do to their property including the exterior and entire interior. They spent $150,000 (a bit over their intended budget but the return made it worthwhile!). After the renovation, the property was valued at $720,000 by a registered valuer. Very happy for these guys!
