澳洲Australia property Advice on Renovating a Queenslander | Syd
在澳大利亚 Hi all, I currently have a PPOR and 10K cash in the bank which I plan to use as a deposit for a IP early next year. Is it possible for me to place this into my PPOR loan and then redraw the 10K when Im ready for the IP and then claim the int Hi Guys, Ive found a property that has mentioned two payments coming up of $1400 to apparently top up the admin fund and 2 have just been paid. Im looking at a financial statement (basically a balance sheet) for the strata and its all a bit
Just wondering what peoples opinions were on renovating Queenslanders?
I think it is best to keep with tradition etc but where do you draw the line, obviously when kitchens and bathrooms are replaced then you are getting away from a traditional property.
Basically what are your opinons on changing things such as adding halogen downlights, removing internal walls, etc
What would you change and what wouldnt you change?
Thanks for your help
My partner have built a number of replicas and the outside is left very traditional but the inside is a modern as.
I hate renovating (as I realize I suck at it) but make the place as functional as possible with all the mod cons without destroying the caracter. Remove what you want to get the best resale you can just be carefull with the outside.
I even use old style pavers and cottage gardens outside to attract the Qlder type buyer.
Hope this helps
Personally I believe renovating a Qldr and building a replica are entirely two different things. A true Qldr is about it's timeless tradition, its character, the generations of families and the memories associated. You cannot replica it.
Renovating Kitchens and bathrooms are fine, just try to go with a timber kitchen to keep the appeal. Tassie Oak and New Guinea Rosewood are excellent for kitchens. Never change windows to aluminium. Expose all vj's and polish the floors, the wide hoop pine floorboards are the most popular. Open up the verandahs. A Qldr with legal head height under will attract a significantly higher price and you must have a timber deck, the bigger the better.
Could go on for hours. I'm not a builder but I know what buyers want from them.
Thanks for your reply Kevin.
All going well I should settle on a Queenslander in Kedron next month.
