How do people deal with the issue of renovating interstate properties? The logistics of undertaking interstate renovations seems much more difficult and time consuming than if you can reno in an area close to home.. Do people actually bother with renovating their interstate IP's or just buy IP's that don't need renovation? Has anyone had any experience with this? I want to buy interstate as there is not much value in Sydney. However, I would prefer to buy an old dump for a good price that can be renovated.. I just see the issue of doing an interstate reno a bit daunting. Maybe I'm just lazy.
