Buy or Renovate - (part-three)

By: Amos Grham

Perhaps you want to sell your home instead and take a driving holiday around Australia. Well that may be the cheapest and less irritating way of spending your retirement and I am able to suggest some online sites that are ideal for selling your property, where you register, as a member, and list your property until it is sold for FREE. With thousands of people, now using Ozfreeonline.com everyday you can maximize your chances of receiving more inquiries, and a higher price and it is all FREE. Register as an Individual and list your property now.

It is very important to find the right tradespeople and this is where you may have to do most of your online searching. Speak with family and friends and even neighbours who have done renovations or built a home. It is important to find a tradesperson with whom you can communicate. Make sure you understand everything they are telling you.

Book a tradesperson well ahead of time, as many (particularly if exceptional) can be booked for months in advance. Your tradesperson must be licensed and carry insurance. Your product warranties are only valid if installed by a licensed tradesperson. In Australia, Trades@call provides professional, reliable tradespeople for most jobs, and all workmanship is guaranteed. OzFreeOnline has its own classified and real estate pages where you can browse through pages of qualified builders and trades people without any obligation. Don't mess around with tradespeople who don't give you the answers you want, go online, and find out for yourself.

Know your start and completion dates, because while you are communicating with your tradesperson, come to an agreement of realistic start and completion dates for your project. If you have a specific date that the job must be completed, for example you have relatives coming to stay from overseas, let your tradesperson know. Keep in mind that unexpected problems can hold up your project, no matter how well you have planned it.
