Episode 249 | The 4-Step Framework To Renovate or Build Your Home… AND Enjoy it! – Chat with Amelia Lee

Considering renovating or building your own home? If so, this is the perfect episode for you!! Here’s why…

We’ve got Amelia Lee, the architect behind Undercover Architect, an award-winning online resource to teach folks how to design, build or renovate their homes. To give you an idea, she’s been in the industry for over 25 years and has solid personal experience in the trenches as a “serial renovator”!

And the best part? Amelia’s on a serious mission to take the “bamboozle” out of the renovation, building and design process!

‘Cos let’s be real folks… these projects can often be draining on the ol’ tolerance levels/bank account/relationship health/overall health… BUT  as you’re about to find out… it doesn’t have to be like this AT ALL!!

(Ben’s now wishing he chatted with Amelia BEFORE he attempted three renovations on the one house!)…

‘cos, what d’ya know… it turns out that renovating and building your own home can actually be…. enjoyable!!

And all you need to do is follow Amelie’s simple, 4-Step Framework…. BEFORE you even pick up a hammer, tear down a kitchen sink or stub your toe on an exposed nail, cursing and questioning why you ever took the project on. (And/or telling yourself “never again!” like our mate Ben… who went ahead and did do it again AND AGAIN, oblivious to the fact that this wonderful framework existed.)

Learn from Ben’s mistakes folks — avoid hemorrhaging cash.

Go get your overalls ready…. this is going to be fun!

 

The Top SEVEN Takeaways…

  1. What does building and renovating with “intention” look like?
  2. How can you stretch your dollar further?
  3. Who do you need on your team?
  4. What are the big slipups people often don’t think about?
  5. How do you find a decent builder?
  6. What things are the top considerations for investors and home owners?
  7. Would an architect ever be an owner-builder? (and Should You???)

Episode 248 | Everything You Need to Know About The 138 Changes Landlords Are Facing

There’s ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY EIGHT CHANGES to Victoria’s rental laws coming into effect next year… and we think these are about to set the precedence for legislation across the entire country.

Which means… landlords need to be clued in on their rights and what’s going to be expected moving forward — and frankly folks… we think the pendulum has swung slightly too far, and is now quite in favour of tenants. So, what do “Residential Rental Providers” — which, by the way, is what Landlords are about to be called — need to know BEFORE these changes kick in??

Here to fill us in on everything in this pretty epic episode, is Hayley Mitchell, Director of Geelong Property Managers and Director and Trainer of Mitchell PT, which provides training and consulting in the property management industry. Plus, she’s also a fully licensed Real Estate Agent and has worked in property management since 1999 (she’s well-and-truly passionate about this stuff, folks!)

And here’s where it gets super important…

Hayley has actually gone through the ENTIRE 500-page Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill with a fine-tooth comb.

And not only is this impressive… but also, it’s actually incredibly helpful for us landlords — or wanna-be landlords, or even the tenants amongst us!

Let’s find out what on earth is going on and how exactly these changes to legislation affect us!

And just a bit of a disclaimer folks: this is Hayley’s interpretation of how these changes will impact landlords and as such should not be taken to represent advice in any way. If you want more information, please seek professional advice from your property manager 😉
