12 Day Reno
I'd been looking at this property for a while and it had good bones and a few different strategies to it and I like something that has more than one way of making money .... but the owners wanted too much as they do -- but
Anyhoo -- they found another property and the agent phoned me - ( Reason to be friends with lots of agents :) )
This place was wallpapered within an inch of it's life - wallpaper every where and I mean everywhere and 3 different types in most rooms - it was hard to fathom but not hard to understand how it had'nt sold
I had invited friends to come and visit along with our HomeX team and after Pizza someone pulled off a sheet of wallpaper - it came off in sheets so easy we couldn't believe it - within an hour the whole house almost had been de wallpapered. Great I did discover though the reason why it was so easy to pull off - they hadn't prepped propertly and the walls were dirty under and had the glue all over them - They were sugar soaped to death - Fun fun but hey we are still winning
We had planned on using a sprayer and thought that we would buy one - it was a quality one second hand ........ well not so good it had issues and by the time they were fixed we'd already painted half the house - we used it on the granny flat though so was good for that at least but that was something that didn't go to plan - I'd taken the doors off so we could spray them but that ended up being a roller job as well but it was still faster having them set up on tressels ( lots of cutting in on these doors)
We installed new curtains - an easy way of moderizing a home and painting Black windows white was a big one too (everything was painted black ?!) We had mirrors stuck on walls - including kitchen spashbacks , but these mirrors were broken - not attractive. Polystyrene pretend rock everywhere as well as you can see in the ceiling below - it had to go...
These are a few photos - there are more and I will update this page in a few weeks so check back
