Top 3 Learnings:
- Act quickly if agent brings you a great deal. Negotiate terms to suit you and the vendor even if they seem outrageous!
- Go back to Dom’s notes about Communication if you have a nuisance neighbour!
- Renovate all of it and don’t skimp on certain areas
- Stick to the budget – tempting to keep spending to finish everything to my standards (but don’t). Find hacks to save money instead.
Used a builder to manage the project which absorbed some of our profit BUT sped up the reno. This freed me up to find and buy next deal while demo-ing this one AND improve our processes moving forward.
