This weeks question:  35519396_s

I bought an apartment in Hawthorn 8 years ago for $375,000 and today it’s worth around $500,000 – it needs around $35,000 spent on renovations as it’s getting tired.

I’m disappointed with it’s capital growth over the last 8 years especially if you take into account stamp duty and buyers agents fees that we paid.

Should we renovate it, should we sell it or keep it. 

Amanda from Randwick
