The catastrophic floods six weeks ago may have damaged thousands of homes, but they have not dampened the Queensland or Victorian spirit of homeowners who have chosen to stay in their homes and try to rebuild their lost wealth.

Referring to the 850 or so exclusive riverfront homes damaged by the floods, property analyst Michael Matusik said “This property is tightly held and most owners are likely to renovate and stay put.” Resilient homeowners are not only looking to ‘stay put’ and fix their homes, but some are looking for opportunities to actually add value to their home through renovations.

Not a bad strategy during these times. Prior to the recent floods, outlooks for the Brisbane property market were quite subdued anyway. Many analysts were forecasting modest gains throughout 2011 of less than five percent. To take advantage of the opportunities in this changing market over the next few years, it is likely investors will need to take a different approach. Instead of waiting for natural growth to happen more and more investors are manufacturing their own capital growth through renovations.

“Real estate investors are looking for new and faster ways to increase their property values where they can create their own capital growth and fast track their wealth creation,” says Ana Stankovic of a nationally recognized renovating for profit specialist. “Regardless of whether the market is rising, falling, or going sideways, one of the most reliable and accessible strategies for adding value is to renovate properties.”

Ana, who is regularly featured and a contributor to a range of prominent industry publications, knows what she’s talking about. She has helped more than 25 people last year alone purchase renovation deals each making more than $50,000 in profit in less than six months.

Although anyone can renovate, not everyone knows how to profit from renovating properties. When it comes to practical application, many investors fall short of their hopeful profit target. For those interested in learning the practical side of renovating for profit, is offering an educational seminar on March 19, 2011 in Brisbane or June,26, 2011 in Melbourne.

Unlike most educational seminars that offer a little superficial information, then a hard sell at the end, this seminar will provide current, practical, in-depth, and reliable information specifically pertaining to renovating property in Australia in the current economic climate.

The Brisbane Renovate and Profit event will feature Ana Stankovic and other industry leaders in their chosen fields including Kevin Turner who's RealEstateTalk program on 4bc radio is a source of great information for investors, Robert Balanda - author of the 'Clauses Made Simple' books and columnist for API magazine who will not only go over the most important clauses renovators need, but will also give attendees copies of those clauses, Lee Dittmer who runs Who Finance and works very closely with MFAA, etc.
