Interstate escape

Project Summary

This family were relocating interstate and had bought their new home in Tasmania when they contacted us. Already holding a double mortgage, they didn’t have the cashflow they needed to renovate their Canberra home.

This little house threw everything it had at us, from wasps’ nests in the walls to undergrowth pushing up through the floorboards. It needed some serious YPP TLC to get its owners the best possible price.

As well as repairing longstanding maintenance issues, we removed walls to create a larger living space and added two new decks with stacking slider doors opening out to the back deck. This opened up the space and let in the light. We built a brand new family sized kitchen with a butler’s pantry and reconfigured the floorplan to add an extra bedroom and ensuite.

This home went on the market at a challenging time, right in the middle of interest rate rises and the federal election in 2022. Yet, on auction day we had more than six parties bidding and easily exceeded our happy owners’ reserve price. 

Net profit:

$327,000

“We outgrew our first home and knew it was time to sell. Sophie transformed our property from well-loved to wow, and helped us achieve a sale price we never thought possible. Sophie's knowledge and expertise took all the stress out of our first-time sale. We couldn't be happier with the result. We definitely would never sell any other way, thank you so much.”
