By Emily Hutchinson

We can’t all afford a dream home with an inner-city postcode, but Frank Valentic – a buyers advocate from Advantage Property – shows us that with a bit of elbow grease, you can transform a less than ideal property near the city into the home of your dreams for a fraction of the cost.

"Valentic’s first call to action to transform the house into a modern abode is to take down the patterned wallpaper and replace with white walls. Also high on the agenda is to rip up the old carpet to reveal the wooden floorboards beneath. “This will immediately lift the whole living area and make it feel more open, light and modern,” he says. “It’s already a good size with stunning details like the cornices on the ceiling – they don’t make them like that anymore.”

In this fantastic article about turning a home in need of uplift into your dream home Frank and Emily talk about the various ways you can increase the value of dated homes with some smart renovations.
