: 1 Buy good bones! We were on the look out for a place for about a year, watching the property market, saving and working out a solid plan and when this little place came up, we jumped on it!
It was the sort of place that had no photos of the interior online, a “renovators delight” and that was perfect for us!
Good quiet area, great market for resale and minimal competition because no one wants a run down 70’s brick home, #wherestheweatherboards?
But looking past the peeling paint, the falling apart kitchen and the oven that looked like mud pies were a common cuisine the foundation was great! Solid brick, restumped and a new #colourbond roof, perfect for looking at while watering the grass in your undies 😂
Oh and did I mention there’s a killer lemon tree in the front yard, hello lemon meringue pie 🙌
