So here's your chance to get into a property which is screaming out for that DIY touch. It is completely a house that can be lived in so you don't have to renovate, but if it's finished off there is genuine profit to be made.
As I was warned by the owner and tenant is was a renovation job, so I was expecting the worst but the house which is situated in a cul-de-sac and is built in the mid 90's on top of 811m2 of land. REALLY caught me off guard! As it does need work, yes, but it's very liveable the way it is with decent size rooms, at least 2 living areas, dining area and a huge amount of other features.
Inside the house which I my honest opinion is at least 80% complete contains 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms of real usable size. The master bedroom is Queen Size and has a nice walk in robe and ensuite. 2 of the others are double size and have built in robes. The last room which is next to the master is more of a nursery or study size but it does have a built in robe which make it more than useful. When you walk in the house there is a lounge and study which greets you. Then you walk through to the dining and kitchen both which are tiled and overlooking a sunken lounge. The laundry and main bathroom are in decent condition and are of average size.
Now the outside which is HUGE is a minimum 30% finished. The part which is unfinished is mainly dirt and sand which leaves a blank canvas for the next owner to do a multitude of things with it depending on their wants and needs? There is a 3mx3m garden shed which is very handy out there and will compliment whatever the next owner wishes to create out there. Also here is a double carport with 2 single door roller doors along side the house next to a brick a long brick wall and on the other side there is another small covered patio.
All in all there were a few improvements that never got finished now it's up to the next owner.
Just a couple of guidelines to bring the house up to scratch..
JACKSONS HANDY HINTS:
Level the backyard and finish with a simple roll on grass.
Touch up the paint inside and out.
Kitchen needs just touch up work but is screaming out for an upgrade.
Install carpet in 1 of the bedrooms.
Replace fittings in bathrooms.
Replace piping under the sink in the ensuite.
Fix side roller door.
Install new matching window fixtures.
Install Spilt air conditioning in sunken lounge and main bedroom
This will bring the house up to a very nice standard for either renting out again or living in. The Merriwa Median price at the moment is $385,000 and if this house was finished to the above standard. I would put a sale price of $380,000+ on it and it would absolutely fly out the door!!
AN IMPORTANT NOTE is that the side fence has fallen down during the last storm and will be replaced by the owner through insurance. Other than that, the house will be sold in As seen condition and the sale price reflects the work that needs to be done and the reward that's possible if you choose to finish the house.
The property has been tenanted for 6 years but they are looking to move when the house sells.
THERE WILL ONLY BE PRIVATE VIEWINGS SO CONTACT JACKSON FOR YOUR BOOKING.
