Here’s the project overview.

Project description: A corner-block investment granny flat in East Gosford, Central Coast, NSW.

Build duration: 12 weeks.

Return on investment: The granny flat is generating a rental return of $350 per week while the main house is renting for $475 per week. Combined: $825 per week.

The location

Founded way back in 1842, East Gosford on the Central Coast is a well-established area with a lot going for it. Known for its neighbourly spirit, it’s home to a number of schools, parks, recreational facilities and cafes.

All this makes for a safe, comfortable area – a particular hit with retirees and young families.

Just 75km from Sydney, the suburb is centrally positioned adjacent to the CBD of the City of Central Coast LGA. The regional population is now over 333,000 and growing strongly. This makes East Gosford a particularly lucrative investment area, earning it a coveted “high demand market” label from real estate experts.

Investing in a granny flat in the area just made so much sense for our happy clients.

The project

It’s a common misconception that corner blocks don’t make for good granny flat potential. This project defies that thinking.

Sporting its own driveway access and separate, private garden area, this spacious 2-bedroom granny flat has almost doubled the earning potential of the original dwelling.

Combine the modern fixtures with a bright spacious interior and it means the finished project surpassed all client expectations.

As a bonus, the owners also completed a interior “renovation and refresh” of the main house. Interior paint, a new kitchen and freshly sanded floors all boost the earning potential of the main house … as well as the overall property.
