TWO YEARS AGO…
This property started its life as a 2-bedroom house with study in the North-Western Sydney suburb of Schofield. When it was purchased two years ago, in 2013, it had been converted into a 3-bedroom house. Situated on a 700 square metre block of land in a growth corridor, it offered a lot of growth potential.
The house itself was a ‘piece of shit.’ It was run-down and dilapidated to the point where most would have knocked it down and started all over again.
But there was still hope for this humble abode. Instead of destroying it, the purchasers spend around $50,000 in renovations. It was born again.
In today’s market, a 500 square metre block of land won’t sell for less than $550,000 to $600,000. Comparable properties, which don’t come up too often (and sell very quickly when they do), sell for around $700,000 to $750,000. This particular property also has the potential to add a granny flat to it, making it ripe for more money-making.
