These blogs are great on the renos, BUT as a property investor, if I know its a 'self done reno' when I walk into a listing, I purposely look for HUGE PRICE discounts. NO WAY will a self reno have work quality of finish be better than a competent tradies who (paints, carpenters, gyprocks etc) everyday. Self reno, fine, but if the goal is to sell at a profit, remove the blog before you goto market and sell the agent that all work completed by 'the best tradies'.
And stage the property to sell, nothing worse than seeing an empty terrace, or crowded living space at an open. Look around whats selling in your extended local realty market and reno / stage to your target. Also visit other opens and talk to the agent to give you ideas whats hot and whats not, eg quality benchtops are hot, lino is NOT.

We're also blogging our Reno adventures http://whitewallsandsunflowers.wordpress.com. We might be a little crazy, we have three on the go currently which we are doing for investment & planning our next buy to be a long term home purchase.
Look forward to reading all your blogs and posts in the forum, thanks for sharing.
Hey guys how are your Reno adventures going?

Hi All - well I used to post on here as MissVintage - I was young and idealistic and we were building our "forever house" however 7 years down the track it seems that our "forever house" just wasn't …. and we have a new plan for life including multiple renovations because hey - why not.
Well anyways we have just started a new blog to document our new journey into happiness - and this particular post i have just written outlines just how we experienced our renovation journeys to try and define just how we do what we do!
Anyways, glad to be back on the Homeone bandwagon - welcome all!

We have just started renovating a one story terrace in Sydney, and I've been searching around the internet for blogs or anecdotes on people's experience in DIY renovations, particularly for terrace houses. Haven't been able to find many, so please share any of your blogs or anything else useful you might have stumbled across!
Here is mine – http://207young.blogspot.com/
Look forward to hearing your responses!
That's great. Also thank you everyone for sharing your blogs. Hoping to get some stunning ideas reading them! I'll soon be renovating mine too! I'll surely update the photos once its done.
