澳洲Australia property initial renting costs for new build | Syd
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
Im in the process of building a property which, my initial plan was to sell off . However it is going a bit too quick than I had planned ( now thats a rarity!)and will be finished before 12 months.
I had also considered renting at the planning time but would decide further down the track. Well that time is nearly here.
I was just wondering what costs are involved in getting it from new build to rentable.
For instance ,Tv aerials, rainwater tanks , How do I stand with connecting gas etc.
Do I have to put curtains in?.Bins?
Basic things I suppose, but any info would be great
Hi Ian, for rental, think cash effective.
rainwater tank : in SA, it's mandatory & should be part of the building/ stormwater connection process, fairly cheap, I got mine for under $1000 after rebates. $500 for tank & $250 for someone to make the cement base & install it.
letter box: you can buy one for under $20 - installation costs more
curtains: I made cheap lace curtains [$2.99/m from Spotlight] for bedroom, buy thermal/ready to hang curtains [$40 a set]
I paid my manager to use a drill to put up the tracks, the most cost effective is to use C hooks & rods - don't worry about fancy expensive rods etc, once the curtains are up, you can't see the rods & hooks anyway.
Blinds will cost about $1600-$2000 for the std 3BR small house.
Bins: the council will give the phone number of the company & they bring the bins to you, FREE!
Lanscaping: this is where you can save big by DIY. It cost me under $250 per house [mind you, I'd been saving plants in plastic bags for 1 year while building]
Impt: air cond [RC is probably best] about $1500 in 2007
clothesline: must have - around $400?
thanks.....1500 for reverse cycle?Looking at 8000 for r/c and similar for gas ducted/evap. Maybe wall furnace?but that may affect resale.........
Been an interesting trip to build to sell, what to spend money on , or not, can now see even more difference with renting.
New to all this and definately a learning experience!!!.Have looked at this site quite often and thanks to all that use thier time to post.
Off to see a financial lady soon to see what she has to say, and me being me, will take a stack load of time double checking what she says to satisfy myself shes not doing me!!!..Sceptism and realism..............maybe thats what has held me back for the past couple of years
