Renovating your house is a proven strategy to build wealth and quality of life at the same time. Renovators can achieve their dream home without incurring money on stamp duty and other associated relocating costs.

Professional couple Lance and Maryanne recognised this when they purchased their un-renovated 1950s, threebedroom house. With a toddler and plans for a second child, a renovation was always on the cards.

They chose the Newcastle suburb of Charlestown offering a great lifestyle which is becoming increasingly desirable as a place to live due to its central location on the east side of the Pacific Highway. The location is a short commute into the Newcastle CBD for work and is in close proximity to major shopping centres, Glenrock State Conservation area and many of Newcastle’s best beaches.
