Fees, you don’t want to pay - The renovation reality

This is the learning fee that you must pay when you realise that renovations are hard work and not as easy as reality TV shows or property blogs would suggest.

Perhaps you bought a property that needs a significant renovation in the order of 10 percent of its purchase price.


But then everything ended up costing more than you expected and the project ran over time, which increased your holding costs substantially.

So you ended up sinking about 20 percent of the purchase price into the renovation and landed in the over-capitalisation territory.

This learning fee could easily cost you tens and tens of thousands of dollars as well as a waiting period of many years as you wait for the market to improve enough to get your money back.

RealRenta has all the tools that a property manager has but for less than ¼ the cost of a property manager.
