Engage your agent only when it’s time to sell.


The commission fee you pay your agent is a percentage of the sales price. It doesn’t matter how many months you spend together, or how many questions you ask. It’s better for the both of you if you start getting from advice from your agent right from the start.

This house in Melbourne’s up and coming West Footscray was suffering from some serious neglect. The house seemed un-sellable and very few people turned up for the auction. But when Scott Oliver laid his eyes on the faded paint, the outdated cabinetry, and the broken fixtures, all he saw was potential.

There are lots of rules to follow when renovating your house - and one of them is to get your kitchen looking spic and span and up to date. 


Overall renovations should cost no more than 5 - 10% of the value of your property, and you need to dedicate part of your budget to what is fast becoming the hub of every home - the kitchen.

Alanna wanted to sell her house. Situated in Sydney’s Newtown area, she knew she could get a fantastic price if only she spent a little time and money fixing it up. 


After a few phone calls, Alanna had lined up a slew of tradespeople. She had always wanted to see her family home in perfect condition, and she was excited to be watching her dream finally coming true.

Renovating to sell can be tricky, unless you have the right strategy! Some renovations can be costly but do not increase the home’s value in a proportionate manner. 


So, here are some mistakes to avoid when renovating to profit.

First impressions count!


I don’t know about you but when I am looking to buy anything I’ve usually made up my mind within the first 10 seconds based on presentation. It might seem a bit shallow and they say “one should never judge a book by its cover”, but studies show most of us do the same thing and it’s no different for when people are buying a home.

Renovate To Sell Or Just Sell?

So you’ve decided to sell your home.


The question is, 'do you renovate it to get a higher sales price or do you just sell it “As Is”? '


Sometimes it doesn’t cost that much to quickly increase a property’s value with some smart renovation touch ups but sometimes it might not be worth the headaches especially if the uptick isn’t that much or for instance the buyer will most likely demolish.

So you’ve bought a house for profit, finished your renovations and now your sleek new home is on the market. The job’s not over yet. The buyers are coming, so let’s get prepared for your open house. 


First, your house needs to look inviting from the outside. To increase your curb appeal, tend to the garden beds, mow the grass, and give the driveway a once over with a broom.

Alanna wanted to sell her house. Situated in Sydney’s Newtown area, she knew she could get a fantastic price if only she spent a little time and money fixing it up.


After a few phone calls, Alanna had lined up a slew of tradespeople. She had always wanted to see her family home in perfect condition, and she was excited to be watching her dream finally coming true.


Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. After months of waiting and patient negotiating, nothing was finished.  Her house was a mess. 


Illness left Alanna unable to work and, as a result, she fell behind in her loan repayments. The bank refused to lend her any more money to finish her renovations. They even insisted that she hurry the sale.

Alanna's Story

Newtown, Sydney

At her wits end, Alana contacted Sacha Caller at Renovate Australia. Sacha listened to Alanna’s story, a story that is all too common these days. He knew he could help.


Renovate Australia set Alanna up with their crew of quality tradespeople. Sacha assured Alanna that all she needed to do was relax and watch the work get done.


In a short time her home fully renovated and in impeccable condition. Alanna hadn’t had to do a thing. 


It looked beautiful, and it was ready for auction.


Thanks to Renovate Australia, Alana got the price she wanted, and she was able to sell her house on her own terms fully restored in perfect condition.

Scott's Story

Footscray, Melbourne

 

Scott's pet project investment property in Melbourne’s up and coming West Footscray was suffering from some serious neglect. 


The house seemed un-sellable and very few people turned up for the auction. But when Scott Oliver laid his eyes on the faded paint, the outdated cabinetry, and the broken fixtures, all he saw was potential.


A qualified local builder, Scott identified a solid foundation and knew that with some love and attention he could turn this dilapidated house into a beautiful family home. 


Once he got his hands on the property, he consulted with Vendor’s Advocate, Sam Spernat. 


Together they identified the renovations that were necessary to bring this house back to life and ready for the market. 

Sam put Scott in touch with Renovate Australia. Being a professional builder, Scott didn’t need us to connect him with tradespeople. He didn’t need any guidance either. What Scott needed was a quick loan with good terms. Renovate Australia was happy to help.


With so much experience renovating homes for others, Scott knows how important it is to work quickly and within a budget. He secured a $50 000 interest free loan from Renovate Australia and was then able to renovate the property from top to tail. He installed a brand new bathroom, all new electrical wiring, and air conditioning system. He sanded the original floorboards and gave the wall a fresh coat of paint. 


When he’d finished, Scott was looking at a stunning, modern home almost unrecognisable from the original. He sold the property within weeks, ready for his next challenge. 

Andrew Schepers grew up in Bendigo. After 20 years working in the booming housing industry on the Gold Coast, he returned to see what he could do back in his hometown.


He purchased a house in the style you’d expect to find in a central Victorian city - a 3-bedroom red brick with a good sized garden and shed. 


Looking around, Andrew had the idea to update the property in a crisp, contemporary Gold Coast style. 


He started with the outside, rendering the brick, extending the driveway and sculpting the garden. On the inside, he installed new kitchen cabinetry and appliances, swapped a bathroom with the laundry and gave the ensuite a touch of luxury. 

Andrew's Story

 

With so much to do, Andrew needed an extension on his bank loan. Unfortunately, the bank flat out refused. 


Andrew had renovated plenty of homes before, and he knew this one was going well. He just needed a little more time. That’s when he found Renovate Australia.


Andrew was able to realise his vision and see the project to completion with just a little bit of help from Renovate Australia. He added some rooms, and installed some finishing touches, like the gorgeous feature wall in the entry. 


When we visited Andrew, he was finished and very proud of his opulent abode. Even though it took longer than expected, Andrew was now standing in front of his dream home, excitedly shaking hands with his real estate agent.
