AUSTRALIA’S #1 RENOVATION COURSE

What is
Cosmetic Renovations for Profit?

Created in 2009 by Cherie Barber, Cosmetic Renovations For Profit is Australia’s most comprehensive renovation education program, complete with instant Online Access, a 3 Day LIVE Bootcamp, Home Study Kit, 1-on-1 Mentoring and V.I.P access to exclusive discounts on renovation products and services. Learn to minimise renovation costs, tighten your timeline and maximise profits, whether you rent or sell on completion.

A QUICK, LOW RISK STRATEGY

Why Cosmetic?

With quick cosmetic renovations you can manufacture equity instantly by uplifting your property value as quickly as possible, with as little risk as possible. In a fast-paced and changing market it’s the low risk strategy preferred by many investors and recommended by Cherie. And unlike structural renovations, where the risks and project costs are high and project time frames longer, with the right training you can learn how to cosmetically renovate with little or no renovation experience.

If this right for you?

Professionals

From builders to project managers to home stylists, our courses have helped industry pros grow to the next level to provide more value to clients and increase their personal and property profit success.

A COOKIE CUTTER APPROACH

Cookie cutting takes the guesswork out of budget setting, so you can calculate with reasonable certainty what your renovation will cost, and how long it will take. That is magic in the speculative, risky world of renovating, where fancy design can cause your budget to spiral out of control.

The cookie cutter approach is the proven formula for low budget, cosmetic renovations and my recipe for success!
