澳洲Australia property Renovating and selling property for a liv


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo


Good afternoon all

Happy NY to you all.

I am new member to this web site and was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice.

I am currently employed full-time (ie; the last 13 years in the same position) however my circusmstances will be changing in the next few months.

So I am looking at this as a chance to persue another career which I will get alot more enjoyment out off which is "renovating property".

This is not something that I have done professionally however I have done work on my own homes and found it really satisfying and something that I get a real kick out off.

So I thought there maybe an opportunity to go down this road and was wondering if there is anyone out there that had taken a similiar path and would be able to offer me any advice for example;

recommendations of reading material or courses that I should attend
what sort of capital is required to get started and
if you can potentially earn a good income out of renovating and selling

Look forward to any feedback that you can offer me

ps; I am not sure if this matters but I am located in Melbourne and would be looking at renovating/selling there.

If you are willing go spelunking in the caves of info on this site you will find many answers.

The section called Adding Value will be of particular interest. There are many threads where people have posted pictures of the dumps they bought and the magnificent beauties they turned them into with photos and descriptions along the journey.

Good luck - many people have made a living this way.

See post 26 in below thread Nathan is doing an internal and external reno in Muswellbrook over 4 weeks, it may be worth your while to go and visit for 4 weeks and see how it can be done.
