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
I purchased this property in Mt Druitt 6 months ago for $205,000 and it rents for $360pw or nearly 10%. Unrenovated it was renting under my ownership for $320pw. The previous owner had it rented at $240pw. This is proof that deals are out there you just need to be proactive to find them and make them happen.
I spent $5,000 - $5,500 on renovation and worth $270,000 now.
The fun stuff is below.

I recognise those power lines and i know that street, seems like a reasonable buy and good back yard.
But 270K current value is exaggerated.
And unless you sell it, you can't really claim "profit".
Nice toilet... for the flamboyant man.
Good point PB
I have it on market at present and had interest over $260,000 already. (I dont want to sell this, just that I need to fund a property purchase outright and this one has an insignifigant loan on it so I can redoploy funds) - Once again its out of character I sell, and will be like the 5th property I have ever sold.
Heaps of comparables on RP Data in streets beside it with same infringements selling for $270,000 - $320,000. I thought my price was pretty conservative.
Surely you could just plonk a prefab in the back yard?
Or is local council adverse to such things?

The one at Willmot I posted recently I will plonk one on though. That one opens up to a different 2nd dwelling option.
