Currently looking at Deception Bay for an IP. We realise this is a very active market right now. We are contemplating buying a property with good bones but in need of a cosmetic makeover. We have a property manager that has been recommended that friends are happy with. We haven't discussed what fees would be to project manager for us with the PM. For those of you that have renovated remotely using a PM to project manage - what was the rough cost or percentage. Is this the best option or should we use a builder or independent project manager. Realistically we are too time poor to travel to manage a project that would last more than 2 days. Full time jobs x 2 and 3 kids - 2 of which are at school and very little family support for childcare. Happy to pay someone to project manage to maintain some sanity!
