RENOVATION CASE STUDY – FRALLON CRES, FRANKSTON

BEFORE

AFTER

This property was purchased by two couples as part of a buy and hold strategy in the Frankston area.  The home was unrenovated and in poor original condition with significant problems caused by rising damp and extensive, active termite damage.

The plan was to:

  • Treat the termites and prevent rising damp
  • Repair termite damage
  • Make safe asbestos in the property
  • Change the floorplan to open plan living
  • Install a new kitchen and pantry / euro laundry
  • Upgrade the bathroom
  • Make cosmetic improvements

RENOVATION DETAILS

The renovation occurred over just a few weeks.

Almost all internal walls were non-structural so opening up the living space to be open plan was easier than expected.  However more extensive termite damage was discovered necessitating some additional unplanned structural repairs that couldn’t have been foreseen, even with a building inspection.

A tenant was secured prior to advertising the property for rent at the full rental asking price.  A three year agreement was struck which included pre-agreed annual increases and options for extension.

The property was recently revalued and had an updated market estimate.  Within a 24month period had increased in value from $270,000 to $520,000 or 92%.

Given Frankston as a location appreciated by 8% per annum $83,200 of this increase is attributable to the general rise in property prices.  That leaves the remaining 76.5% percent or $166,800 can be directly attributed to the renovation itself.  That’s a return of $4 for every $1 spent on renovation costs.
