    Hi All,

    I am keen to get some feedback on the best books people have read regarding property renovation. Ideally it would be written from an Australian with reference to Australian stores (on and offline).

    I am about 2 weeks away from going to market on my subdivision/renovation project and I think over-capatlised a bit on the renovation. Whilst tradie family and friends will probably return a small profit if I did a bit more research I imagine I could have saved a few dollars.

    I plan on rinsing and repeating this strategy again hopefully a few times.

    Thanks in advance

    @Jane Slack-Smith - Your Property Success with Renovation

    Is the best I've read. Doesn't reference materials etc but her reno course does (which is incredible value).

    Peter Spann's "How you could build a $10 Million Property Portfolio in just 10 Years"
    Lots of reno ideas in there.

    I've got Massive Profits in Real Estate by Adding Value and Renovations by Ron Hoy Fong laying around if you want to borrow it.

    Hefty book from 2006 with plenty of very good info and would be a great reference point while you're in the thick of the reno. Fongy is a Kiwi investor so not sure how relevant the info is for Aus.
