Architectural Insight

Architects are often associated with redesigning or extending an existing home or new build but getting them onboard before you buy can give you hidden insights into a potential property saving you time and money.

Spring is a great time to buy real estate with new properties hitting the market.

But with your eyes on the prize of a completed home it can be easy to miss homes that are full of promise – to the trained eye.

MM+J Architects in Manly are adept at spotting properties that have all the characteristics to become a great home with a little, or a lot, of work.

Buying a property that is slightly run down can save a lot of money in the long run but it is essential that buyers know what to look for.

David McCrae and Luisa Manfredini are available to help clients seek out properties that fit their requirements – or that will do once work is completed.

It is almost impossible for the untrained eye to understand what the development potential is of a house, and more importantly, how much the project is likely to cost.

If you're looking to buy a property that you think may need a bit of work - consult an architect before putting the deposit down.
Rely on their expertise about what you will and will not be able to do in terms of council permission, regulations and potential challenges from neighbours. Getting advice at the outset will save you time and money in the long run.
