    Should I fix my interest rate?

    Interest rates are super low right now, which is great news for people who have a home loan or are looking to apply for a home loan.

    Question is should you fix your interest rate, or should you go with a variable interest rate?

    Real Life Reno Story: Knockdown Rebuild Project

    Real Life Reno Story: Knockdown Rebuild Project

    Should you keep your home and renovate it or knock it down and start again? That is the question that we're exploring in today's episode.
    I'm talking to Kate Merryweather about knockdown rebuild. She's sharing her real life experience.
    Now, if that topic sounds familiar to you, that's because I've spoken about knockdown rebuilds before, in last the season of the podcast. I previously spoke with Helen Al Hariri about her decision-making process around whether they knocked down and rebuild their family home or renovate it. And she decided to go down the renovation route rather than rebuilding.
    So I thought it would be really good this season to look at another perspective and speak to someone who ended up deciding to do a knockdown rebuild. So we're going to chat to Kate around why she decided to do the knockdown rebuild. What was involved in her decision-making process and any tips that she might have for you.

    Claudia and her husband Pete have renovated small properties right through to large scale projects. Several years ago they bought a run-down 1960's weatherboard house (purchased for $460K) and ended up completing a major renovation ($75K), creating a beautiful sought after home ... on a tight budget! They set the suburb record for a property price of $1.035 million (2017)!

    They're currently renovating a 1960's brick house to sell.
    Both Pete and Claudia have a real hands-on DIY approach when it comes to renovating, focusing on achieving that 'WOW' factor ... thinking bigger, outside-the-box, and never afraid to take a risk.

    Claudia created The Renovate Avenue to share her knowledge, and inspire others to climb the property market via the renovation avenue, building a financially stable future to retire earlier (and do what you love).
