Older homes need attention

If you decide to invest in an older the home, there is greater chance you may encounter building issues and challenges you may unwittingly inherit. Houses naturally move over time and older homes built 30-40 years ago will typically have cracks in the walls or foundations, brickwork and the stumps may have moved, resulting in the house needing to be re-stumped if it is weatherboard.

Whilst the nostalgia and characteristics of an older home are very romantic and can be alluring, the reality of a renovation, can often be time-consuming, expensive and potentially quite stressful. For some older homes, sourcing genuine pieces and fixtures to maintain its authenticity could also be a challenge. According to HomeAdvisor, the average Australian renovation costs $46,339, with a range of between $18,439 at the lower end and $75,656 at the higher end. A kitchen renovation alone can set you back an average $26,280 according to the Housing Industry Association's Kitchens and Bathroom Report (2018/2019).

Celebrating open plan

Houses built in the 1970’s and 1980’s were designed with multiple closed sections, and with many, featuring a toilet and laundry located outside the home itself. To renovate this style becomes an expensive and often inconvenient task if you intend to reside in the home whilst renovating. From relocating plumbing, moving and removing walls to structural beams being relocated or removed. There is an abundance of planning and approvals required, which all takes time and money.
