"Melb: Quick cheap and easy Kitchen, Carport, BIR "

From: Always Learning


Dear Forum.

<p>

One of my IP's in the inner west of Melbourne has become vacant, I would like to boost the rental return via a quick fix to the following items, can anyone recommend any good companies, tradespeople etc to do any/all of the following.

<ol>

<li> I would like to quickly improve the kitchen via new cupboards, bench tops, sink, tap wear and maybe dishwasher and stove. Any ball park figures for this (yes its a how long is a piece of string question).

<li> I would also like to install/build a carport, in keeping with a californian bungalow. Any ideas about what the minimum I should pay for this?

<li> I think to build-in, large wall to ceiling robes, in 2 of the bedrooms.

</ol>

I think that with the above 3 things I could boost rentals by $20~30 pw ($1100~$1650 per year). If I want a 12% return on invested funds ( I pay 6%), then I calculate that would mean I should pay no more than $9000 ~ $13,000 for the above. Does this make sense?

<p>

Does anyone else have any good ideas to help boast rental returns?
<p>
Any help, tips pointers to companies or tradespeople who can do any of the above would be greatly appreciated.

<li> Unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got.

<li> To have more than you've got, become more than you are.
