I’m looking to buy a 2 bed 2 bath townhouse say 70squares.
I would be looking to re-do both bathrooms (toilets, showers tiles), kitchen (cupboards, stove etc), replace the floors with carpet in the bedrooms and floating floors for the rest and probably a coat of paint all over.
Is there anyone out there who has done a reno similar to this in the past and have an idea of a ball park figure of costs?
I’d be doing the paining/tiling/carpeting/kitchen (if possible) myself and would want to do it prior to settlement (fingers crossed)
if the option presents itself…
I’d appreciate anyones input
Thanks in advancedtrumpParticipant@dtrumpJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 50

Most people seem to budget between 5% and 10% of the purchase price on these types of renovations. If you are looking at much more or less your fixtures may be to cheap/expensive for the property that you are renovating
