What you are describing was done in a rising market.
If you do a reno today and the market is not moving you will be lucky if you got your money + purchasing/selling costs back
It depends on each deal ofcourse but this is the general feel I get about renos atm.

IMHO

Hi Craig

I agree with BV. Flipping renos works best in rising markets. Cost of interest for a hold may make the whole process unviable.

For 12 month hold net $45K
For 6 month hold net $62K
For 3 month hold net $71K

Then we tax it at your top marginal rate.

Maybe better doing other people's renos and reducing the risk.

Cheers

Factor in buying and selling costs as well as CGT.

If you owner occ then you save the CGT but you mentioned you own your own home.

Perhaps it is worth doing then keeping the property as an IP and enjoying the increased rental a 4+2 would get.

This sort of stuff is not new to me and have made $100k + on all renos, their are renos and reno's, the differance is the quality of the work, lower end 3x1 to a mid to higher end 4x2 is not trying to over cap the market, and becomes fair sell in comparison, to other homes, on the market, the stamp duty can be negotiated off the asking val, and the financial invester can get all of the product Gst back, as i am happy to bust a gut, for no income, for the construction time and send it to auction, eg i can build a 4mx4m room, for 5K this in an example, but don't tell anyone, shhhhh!
Almost every reno i have seen looks bodjy, but is done right can look like a new home, so who"s want's to talk to me about makin some money, as i am cashed out, and need some work/investment opps.
message me and i can link you to my last project, ie my home.

Thanks for the link to your property.
You've done an excellent job.
I was going to ask you what the Monkman St property looked like before the reno but going to google street maps it has the old photo.
It's an amazing transformation and congratulations on the result.

Cheers

I've just realised I was looking at the wrong house on Google
but nevermind you've done a gr8 job :)

Did you work on it fulltime or did you have anothe job as well?

I ask because you could easily make $100K pa if you are in the building trade and without doing renos.

Cheers

Full time and expect that doing reno's as a lic builder i could make 300+,but nothing to go on with yet still fishing??

Craig,

What do you have in mind?
To go 50/50 on a purchase and then do a reno or to knock down and rebuild?
Cheers

Hi Craig

Just out of interest how do you turn 3x1's into 4x2's, do you extend on the house or split up rooms in the existing house? I imagine it gets costly if the roof has to be extended.  

评论
a 50 50 split would be fine if your willing to do the dirty work with me, or i cover the work products only, and you pay the bills.

I add the room on it is a simple job when you take it one step at a time! about 6 weeks,give and take?

Do you knock down the internal walls and redesign the house? :)

Let me know what you have in mind i have a bit of cash sitting around :D  

评论
There may be one or two walls that require shifting to allow for access for the new room , by adding a main and ensuite, and reno the rest of the house when your waiting for a da, The trick is for me that i dont have to wait for a plasterer, carpenter, and can proceed as soon as i get app. this saves about two months,
