Cherie Barber – Renovating for Profit

In November 2016, I was able to attend a 3 day Renovating for Profit workshop in Sydney, NSW run by none other than Cherie Barber – Australia’s renovation queen!!

Information covered topics such as:

  • determining what strategy was going to be the most effective
  • what changes could be completed as part of a cosmetic renovation that would not require council approval
  • what style of home was most suited to a cosmetic renovation
  • the time frames that should be allowed in which to undertake a cosmetic renovation
  • how to determine what purchase price should be offered in order to drive a good profit
  • tips on the most effective changes to make in order to gain the optimum return
  • tips on styling
  • an overview of building and planning regulations
  • how to drive a project plan
  • managing and mitigating risk on a project
  • the importance of mindset

Since undertaking this workshop, I have completed a successful renovation of an investment property in Pakenham, Vic and a number of other small projects.
