CAVE01Z01MA - V1 Alice Springs Real Estate www.professionalsalicesprings.com.au Cinema Complex, Todd Mall, Alice Springs 08 8952 5263 Buy the old home & renovate, or go with the one thats done with nothing left to do? This is the question most of us ask ourselves when looking to purchase property today. Before you jump in one way or the other my advice to you is plan before you purchase. Many renovators assume that the improvements they make will increase the propertys value, but this is not always the case. The most common mistake made when buying old homes to renovate is over-capitalising. Do your homework before you do the deal. Yes, going down this path will give you much satisfaction as you watch the transformation. But if you dont punch the numbers prior to the project, chances are you may end up spending more than youll profit. Create a spreadsheet & do the math. Property + Renovation costs + Interest paid = Total spent. Post renovation, the value of the house must exceed the total spent. You must see a profit. If you dont see a profit, you have over-capitalised. 1~ Professionals ldeallnuestment! *Built in robes & split systems * Large courtyard & undercouer parking *Swimming pool in complex FOR SALE: Offers Ouer $210,000 Open: By Appointment Contact: Penny La Porta 0488 589 049 Ready & Waiting For~ New Family! * Four bedroom, two bathroom spacious family home * Crimsafe security and new carpet throughout * Large block of 1030sqm with manicured gardens FOR SALE: $485,000 Open: 5:00pm- 5:30pm Friday Contact: Stephanie Hart 0401 897 768 A~uice from Interior Oesi~n & ~ales (onsul~nt ~ Ueranda Out The Front ...
