The average cost of a renovation in New Zealand would be between $1,800 and $2,500 per square metre. Plan the project carefully, and get more money than you put in. Avoid overcapitalizing because you might end up with more mortgage than the value of the property.
Know also what the ceiling prices are for similar properties in your area to what yours will be after the renovation. Swimming pools are a perfect example of overcapitalize.
