Property For Profit?

Cosmetic Renovations For Profit is the flagship in Renovating For Profit’s suite of online property education programs. Created in 2009 by Cherie Barber, it’s the most comprehensive renovation education program in Australia, featuring instant Online Access, a 3-day LIVE Bootcamp, Home Study Kit, one-on-one Mentoring and V.I.P access to a exclusive discounts on renovation products and services, and much, much more.

This course will teach you how to minimise your renovation costs and timeline, while maximising profit, whether you rent or sell on completion.


Why Property
Is (Still) Profitable?

Renovating is all about repairing, refreshing, reviving or altering a property to add more in perceived value than actual cost. Buying old, tired, unloved houses [ie: the real estate dumps] and converting them into real estate diamonds, is not only the second love affair of most Australians these days but a very realistic and achievable way to make lump sum cash profits that allow people to build wealth quickly.

You see, renovators are different to traditional property investors. Traditional property investors typically have the “buy, hold and wait for longer term capital growth” mindset. Professional renovators are more aggressive in their property investing pursuits. Renovators aren’t the type who will wait 2, 5 or 10 years in the hope of getting capital growth. They set out “now” to add immediate value to their properties either through a quick cosmetic or a more rigorous structural renovation. They add value within months, not years.

Learn success strategies

  • How to complete a renovation in 6 weeks or less

    using ‘cookie cutter’ design palettes personally created by Cherie to help you laser focus through your renovation and move quickly onto your next project without material waste or time lost ‘reinventing the wheel’ on each property.

  • Average property value uplift of 20% 

    by targeting high value, high return rooms like the kitchen and bathroom and property upgrades proven to add value. Want to know how much of your budget to spend where? Cherie has exclusive formulas available only to students of this course.

  • Property due diligence and feasibility

    calculators and checklists designed to make sure you never overpay for a property. Decrease risk and increase profit potential by following Cherie’s proven formulas, as she reveals the property types and locations you should avoid and those you should snap up fast!

The fabulous thing is, if you’re intending to renovate your property as a rental investment, rest assured you’ll find a tenant faster, improve your rental return and can borrow against a new, improved value so you can go out and do it all again! This is how professional renovators do project after project.

Now let’s also not ignore the facts. Real estate is responsible for helping the richest people in the world amass their fortunes. These people have not built their property empires by being “average” investors. It’s also likely they invest in property with a proven system that enables their investments to work all of the time, not sometimes. The world’s most successful businesses work to a system, so should property investors. This is how you eliminate costly errors to ensure you make a gain at the end of it all. After all, profit is the name in the renovating game.

If this right for you?
