In partnership with
Now, nobody knows more than me how expensive renos are, even when you’re lucky enough to get some industry discounts! These days it is such a stretch to get yourself on the property ladder, especially in Sydney, that you can sometimes move into a rather dated home or one that’s not quite your taste or perfect for your family, and wonder if you’ll ever afford to change it. You might be getting used to bigger mortgage repayments and frankly, still recovering from the shock of just how much you paid for your new home (just me?)!
And while I certainly don’t want to encourage you to borrow beyond your means, there are a lot of finance options out there you might not have thought of. So I sat down with Jess Aloi from our partners Latitude Financial Services to chat about what they look like and how they might take the pressure off. There could be a better way of doing things!
While nobody really wants to talk about finance, it is important and it can also be the thing that lets you realise your reno dreams, and also sooner! I hope these video chats with the lovely Jess make you realise it’s not all dry and boring! We’ve partnered with Latitude because they do things a bit differently to the big banks and we think you’ll like that.
If you have a reno finance question for Jess, she’ll be doing a FaceBook Live this Thursday 2 November at 8pm AEST (we know you parents need to put the kids to bed first!) or please comment your question below and we can pass it on!
