This is a beautiful apartment. It has loads of character and is in a great block, in a lovely location, and the views out the back are mesmerising. There’s also lots of potential, which is a good thing in a first home. David and Carla have a few ideas that they’ve been kicking around since they bought the place. They plan to be here for the next three years or so, and want to be comfortable in that time but increase the value for when they come to sell. Do they save for another couple of years and go all-out for the full reno – or do they make improvements on the smaller budget they currently have? I can tell they’re keen to get started. Here are some thoughts to see them on their way.
