Before & After Renovations
- Area expert knowledge is gold! Knowing which streets out perform others, who is buying, and if one suburb is too hot, look at the next door suburb which might be cooler.
- Be consistent & persistent! Go every week and don’t buy just because you are sick of looking! Tell agents what you are doing and don’t get grumpy with hubby because he’s a West (and I’m an east)!
- Have more than 1 strategy – a deal might work with one strategy but not another. Evaluate them all after open homes.
