My Personal Update

Delay in travels to lend a helping hand

Renovating has always excited Geoff & I, and when the opportunity came up to help out his 83 & 73yr old Dad & Mum, we couldn't wait to get our hands dirty.  

The house this lovely elderly couple were living in was in a pretty bad way, with celing paint pealing to reveal the newspaper lining it, chipboard hanging off the kitchen cupboards, and only a few remaining floor tiles in the bathroom, this place needed a bit more than a splash of paint to bring it up.

We are exactly 1mth into the project and things are looking great.  Here's a little peek at our progress so far...  

The kitchen last month;


The Kitchen this month; (tiles have only gone on today, and painting yet to do, so still a bit messy)

Bathroom rebuild;

For the record, the before photos, are really 'before' we started pulling things apart.

This week we complete the internal renovations and starting next week we will commence the gardens and outdoor entertainment area.  We're having a lot of fun doing the work here, and love seeing the finished product when we're done.

How to profit when renovating

It may not surprise you that this is not our first renovation we've done.  Our first attempt of a reno cost us a fortune, we spent over $100,000 on the house and made about $50,000 back on the sale.  When you get it wrong it hurts, and there are easier ways to learn than by "trial and error".  Who wants to make errors anyway, and expensive ones at that...  Did you know that you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars from one renovation if you follow the right system?  and it can be done in a matter of weeks!

We've spent less than $35,000 so far on this home, and we're almost done.  As you can hopefully see from the glimps we’ve given you (I’ve only showed you the kitchen and bathroom), the home is completely renewed, and we’ve added around $100,000 onto the resale value.   See, I was privileged enough to learn from a couple who specialize in profitable renovations.  I actually only listened to a 90 minute presentation, and in that short time was able to get enough quality information to make a huge difference in how we have approached this renovation, and although we’re not in this one for profit, saving $65,000 is something my Mother and Father in-law are very grateful for. 

If you regularly watch prime time TV you may already know of them as “Australia’s King and Queen of Property Renovating".


Well they’ve done it again. Within the next week or so Today Tonight will be airing another story about Stephen Tolle and Cherie Barber. Specifically, the story will focus on how Australia’s leading property renovation duo have just made a net profit of $700,000 on their latest project in Sydney.
