EERSTE RIVER CLINIC: ‘REPORT WHEN CLINIC OPENS’

Long waits cause a stir NLEBOGANG TLOU

P

atients are urged not to report to the clinic before it opens in the morning. This is the sentiment of officials following concerns over long waits in the cold outside the Eersteriver Clinic, which have caused a stir on social media. Earlier this month, at 06:00 on a cold morning, Edward Diegaard and his wife were among the patients waiting outside the clinic. Concerned over the well-being of his onemonth-old child and that of the other babies and children waiting in the cold with their parents, Diegaard wrote: “Why should onemonth-old babies sit outside in the cold infront of Eersteriver clinic? Because we allow it. So why can’t mommies and babies wait inside in the waiting area? Now they have to queue in the rain from 06:00 only to be hel-

ped from 07:30.” He said to TygerBurger that he and his wife have been visiting the clinic since her pregnancy and is aware of the procedure, hence them getting to the clinic early. “The doors open at 07:30 then you hand in your card. They then call you on a first come first serve basis. If you are not one of first people in the queue, you can be sure to leave the clinic only after 12:00 in the afternoon,” he said. Anticipating the concerns of staff safety, Diegaard suggests the clinic opening for women who arrive early with their children. “They have two security officers on duty from a early hour,” said Diegaard. “All I’m asking is why can’t mothers with babies go inside and wait in the waiting area untill 07:30.” Mayco member for community services and health, Zahid Badroodien, says this is

not possible. He further notes that the clinic cannot be opened earlier, due to the safety of staff. “There is a small shelter outside the clinic gate. Due to safety reasons we do not advise clients to come earlier than 07:30, but to make appointments instead,” he says. Eersteriver clinic caters to an average of 160 people per day serving patrons from Eersteriver, Bluedowns, Kuilsriver, Mfuleni, Somerset West and Wesbank. “Mondays are known to be busy,” says Badroodien. “The new housing developments opening in the area have increased the headcount.” The clinic has an appointment system, where clients can book to arrive and be seen at a specific time. Badroodien says clients with appointments do not wait in the queue and sick children do not need an appointment, and also take precedence.

However, there are challenges which the clinic is still working towards resolving, even though they have full staff capacity. “Unfortunately, there are still a large number of walk-ins arriving without appointments. During winter there is an increase in absenteeism among staff, which impacts on the appointment system. On such occasions clients are informed of the expected delays and given a chance to report another day if their issue is not urgent,” he says. Clinic hours are between 07:30 and 16:30, as per the service delivery board display at the front of the clinic. Badroodien further notes that the facility manager is available should clients have any enquiries. There is also a box for compliments, complaints and suggestions. “A service request is opened for all complaints and a response is provided to clients within five working days,” Badroodien says.

Homeless benefits from acts of kindness project TARRYN-LEIGH SOLOMONS @tarryns07

A

n additional 18 homeless people can now be accommodated at Elim Nightshelter after staff of WP Media (publishers of People’s Post, City Vision and TygerBurger) put notebooks and pens aside to make emergency waterproof sleeping bags for the shelter. This was part of Media24’s #1000 Acts of Kindness project. The sleeping bags are made with newspaper and plastic, creating a warm, portable and waterproof emergency sleeping bag for those in need. Manager of the shelter, Shafiek Ortell says homeless people come knocking at their door every day: “We have a lot of street people coming to the gates of Elim Night Shelter daily. They normally come for a meal and not for accommodation as they prefer to live on the streets due to addictions and couples not wanting to separate. “We have 70 beds and 15 mat- At the back are Paul Breytenbach and Patricia Abrahams.

Daniel and Friends bring colour to home DESIRÉE RORKE @dezzierorke

T

o celebrate the legacy of late president Nelson Mandela, the Daniel and Friends Fund on Saturday 3 August, spent the day, bringing a little colour to the Sive Nati Home in Blackheath. This is the third year the organisation takes on this project. In collaboration with Projek Bietjie Liefde, volunteers painted a courtyard at the home with various encouraging messages and colourfull pictures. “The theme for this year was ‘Let your true colors shine and never stop dreaming’. We believe that everyone can dream, even if you are differently-abled,” says Lianie le Roux, co-founder of Daniel and Friends Fund. Sive Nathi Home provides 24-hour care to children who are profoundly challenged, mentally and or physically, and in some cases face an additional challenge of being HIV positive. “Sive Nathi also strives to improve the quality of life of those in their care and provide them with a family as their parents

have either passed away, cannot cope with their disability or simply abandoned them,” says Le Roux. The home currently accommodates 40 children and the daily care they provide includes ensuring a balanced, healthy diet, making sure the children are kept clean and comfortable, facilitating regular exercise and taking care of their medical needs. “This home is very dear to us. They do wonderful work with very limited funds. We happily support them where we can to bring about positive change,” says Le Roux. “We thank all involved in making this day possible. Without sponsors and volunteers, this could not have been such a success. “We appreciate it more than words can say,” she adds. Main sponsors include Foschini, who donated clothing for the children, Caprichem who provided cleaning materials, Midas Earthcote, Sabre Paint, Mica Hardware in Brackenfell, Bellville Weatherprufe, Measured Ability South Africa Industrial Foam and Rubber Hamilton Brushes DIY Shop in Brooklyn and Carrington Hardware for paint, brushes and other materials.

An employee was “accidentally” electrocuted last month while moving what is to believed to be a container at Forest Village housing development site. A media statement states, “there are no details available, but it is believed that a container was being moved and during this move, the man, who is an employee of one of the contractors, was accidentally electrocuted.” Provincial minister of human settlements Tertuis Simmers has expressed his sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the contract worker. “This is really an unfortunate incident,” says Simmers, also mentioning he will be visiting the family to express his condolences. Simmers has instructed the department to look into the incident that occurred. “Safety is a priority for us at all of our housing development sites. Through his involvement in this development, he has

made a significant and positive contribution to the lives of many beneficiaries of this project,” says Simmers. One of the department’s catalytic projects is Forest Village which commenced in January 2016 with an allocated budget of R1,1bn This mixed-use development consists of various types of units to cater for beneficiaries of different income levels and specific needs such as military veterans, breaking new ground (BNG) and finance linked individual subsidy programme (FLISP) units. “Those who are benefiting from this project are from the airport precinct, the N2 Gateway excess and wards 16, 17, 108 and 114. We are committed to accelerating human settlement delivery, while promoting social inclusion through the development of integrated, resilient and sustainable human settlements in an open society,” says Simmers

Koorfees vir ouers gehou AVRIL FILLIES ’n Koorfees spesiaal vir ouers wat nie die voorreg gehad het om hul kinders in Mei by die Tygerberg-Eisteddfod te sien optree nie, word op Saterdag 18 Augustus gehou. Die Eurecon Primêre Skool in Elsiesrivier bied die koorfees Kô laat ons sing by die Belvue Primêre Skool in Belhar in samewerking met ander skole in die omgewing aan. Dit begin om 15:00. Die ander primêre skole wat gaan deelneem, is Eureka, Winsley, Belvue, Vorentoe, Kasselsvlei, Bellville-Suid en die Athlone Skool vir Blindes. “Eurecon se junior- en seniorkore het aan die eisteddfod in Mei deelgeneem en ouers wou hul kinders sien optree, maar die toegangsgeld was te hoog.

“Ons het besluit om die koorfees aan te bied in samewerking met ander skole, wat dieselfde visie het om die skoolkoorkultuur in ons gemeenskappe aan te wakker,” het Sharon Spannenberg, onderwyser by Eurecon, gesê. Met die koorfees Saterdag wil die skole die leerders se talent aan die publiek bekend stel, en dit is hoe die koorfees se naam Kô laat ons sing gebore is. “Ons het die uitnodiging vir deelname aan verskeie skole in Belhar, Elsiesrivier, Ravensmead en Bellville gestuur. “Bogenoemde skole het die uitnodiging aanvaar,” het sy gesê. “Ons vra R10 per persoon en indien daar ’n wins gemaak word, sal die geld tussen die agt skole verdeel word,” het Spangenberg gesê.

Fire wreaks havoc at church

The AME church in Kleinvlei

BENITA JAFTHA

T

he AME church in Springbok Street has suffered a great loss, following a fire that broke out in the church on Tuesday 23 July. The fire started around 21:00 as the liturgical dancers were practicing. According to Reverend Clive van der Heever, the group of dancers were about to end

off their practice when they noticed the fire in the roof. The dancers – mainly young women – evacuated the church and managed to take out some of the pews as well. “The fire brigade from Mfuleni responded and just after 23:00 the fire was contained,” says van der Heever. The fire destroyed pews, musical instruments, chairs and pulpits. The adjacent room was also damaged due to the extensive

heat and water used to douse the flames. “We are currently having services at the Kleinvlei Community Centre and we are thankful for the local councillor for intervention,” says van der Heever.

Megan Smith and her “miracle Women’s Day” baby Azariah Gordon.

‘Miracle baby’ an inspiration to all DESIRÉE RORKE @dezzierorke

A

zariah Gordon was stillborn on Women’s Day six years ago. Her mother Megan calls her “a true Women’s Day miracle baby” – and that’s no exaggeration. Little Azariah, who turned six on Friday 9 August and is now a healthy little girl attending Eikendal Primary School in Kraaifontein, was born prematurely at 25 weeks. First, she was deemed as a miscarriage and later stillborn, only to be revived minutes later when air was blown back into her lungs. Megan recalls the day as if it happened yesterday. “I woke up around 04:00 on Friday 9 August 2013 to go to the bathroom and this is when I saw light pink stains on my underwear. At first, I did not want to say anything because maybe it was normal,” she says. “I couldn’t be sure so I mentioned it to my family and that is when everything turned into a nightmare.” Megan recalls being absolutely calm. “I wasn’t sure what to do because she was moving and kicking and to my knowledge, she was okay and alive. “Everyone else was stressed and praying and my family quickly started to suspect that I was having a miscarriage.” When Megan got to the day hospital in Kraaifontein she was informed by medical staff that she was experiencing an inevitable miscarriage. “Moments later another nurse came in and asked what I was there for and I explained. She then took a heart monitor and checked the baby’s heart. “She said to me, “I’m calling Tygerberg Hospital. This child’s heart is still beating. “I knew Azariah was fighting although she was dying inside of me. I was confused not knowing whether my baby will make it or not. “No one explained anything to me. Next thing I know I am at Tygerberg Hospital where several doctors told me they could do nothing to save my baby. “Such things happened. I was in my early stages of birth and they could do nothing to keep her heart going, they told me. “I was just 20 years old and scared. My womb had torn, and I was bleeding internally, and my baby was lying breech. I had to wait for her to turn before I could push. “In my mind, I thought, how do I give birth to a dead child, how do I even push”. “I could only cry as she was still moving inside me, but every doctor and nurse kept saying she’s not going to make it. “I did not want to give birth because inside me she was alive and when she comes out ... she would be gone.”

Moments later Azariah turned herself and Megan gave birth at 25 weeks to a baby weighing 770g and whose veins could be clearly seen through a transparent body. “I watched as death covered her little body from pink to blue.” Her heart stopped countless times and being too young, her lungs were only just developed and she could not breathe. “The next few minutes were a blur to me. I was in shock and I thought it was the end. I would never see her again. I did not even get to hold her”. She was then taken out of the room wrapped in a blanket and after what seemed like an eternity, the sister rushed back to tell her Azariah was breathing again and is in an incubator. “I couldn’t believe she was alive.” Mom and daughter spent the next three months in hospital. “Her heart stopped multiple times and had to be resuscitated many times. She had many blood transfusions and was allergic to all types of milk even breastmilk,” says Megan. “It was the most stressful time in my life and still today when we visit the hospital, they have so many stories about the ‘Baby Smith’ that had the staff on their feet.” After being home Azariah still had to go back every month to monitor the veins in her eyes that were not developed yet and she had apnoea, which means she would stop breathing for several minutes. “It was the worst place to be and I was alone, I had to learn very quickly how to be a mom without any help other than that of the nurses.” “Today she is in Grade R and in excellent health. She talks our ears off, is full of life, hyper and strong-willed.” Being born on Women’s Day, Megan, who is a single mom, says Azariah had already proven that she had it in her to fight, like a strong woman does, even when all odds were against her. “Just as much as we prayed for her, she held on and one day she will show us all the great things she will conquer.” Her heart stopped multiple times, but she was still given a chance at life and that means there are only great things in store for her, Megan believes. “She is an inspiration and motivation to never give up. I want every woman out there to remember, it doesn’t matter how many people tell you that you can’t do something or doors keep shutting and you feel drained and ready to give up. Don’t! “You are an amazing woman who was brought into this world for a reason to believe in yourself if no one else does and show everyone, especially yourself that you have what it takes!”

LEWENSKIEKIE

Vroue en geld – wees betrokke! Vroue ervaar toenemende druk in terme van finansiële verpligtinge en al hoe meer vroue raak verantwoordelik vir prioriteitsuitgawes soos vervoer, kos, medies, versekering (lang- en korttermyn) – of dit nou as gesamentlike- of hoofbroodwinner is. Vroue staan ook toenemend aan die hoof van huishoudings en dit beklemtoon net hoe belangrik finansiële beplanning vir vroue is. As die hoofbroodwinner is finansiële beplanning ’n moet. As jy in ’n verhouding is, moet jy deel hê in jou maat se finansiële beplanning. Hoe betrokke is jy? Hier is ’n paar vrae om jou te prikkel: 1.Weet jy die presiese besonderhede van die huisbegroting, beleggings en risikodekking? 2.Weet jy presies wat die situasie sou wees direk na die afsterwe van jou of jou maat (testament of begunstigdes of kinders)? 3.Is dit duidelik wat jou finansiële situasie is indien jou maat of jou eie inkomste skielik wegval? 4.Weet jy wat gebeur met jou of jou maat se onderneming met siekte, ongeskiktheid of dood? 5.Weet jy wanneer jou of jul realistiese aftreedatum is en beplan jy of julle daarvolgens? Indien jy op enige van die bogenoemde vrae “nee” antwoord, behoort die gevaarligte te flikker. As jy in ’n ernstige verhouding betrokke is, behoort jou maat jou aan te moedig om in jul finansies belang te stel. Jy moet jouself egter nie op jou maat se beplanning, of afwesigheid van beplanning, verlaat nie. Vroue leef langer. Maak seker jou plan maak voorsiening hiervoor. Statistieke wys dat vrouens oor die algemeen heelwat langer leef as mans. Daar is dus ’n wesenlike kans dat die vrou die langslewende eggenoot kan wees, wat dit weereens duidelik maak dat jy op hoogte moet bly van jou finansiële situasie. Verder moet jou aftreebeplanning daarvoor voorsiening maak dat jy waarskynlik langer tyd in aftrede gaan spandeer. Wees gereed By die afsterwe van veral ‘n eggenoot, kan sekere bankrekeninge gevries word. Dit kan ’n groot invloed hê op jul huishouding se kontantvloei. ’n Tekort aan likiditeit kan uiteraard baie druk plaas op die oorblywende familielede en kan selfs veroorsaak dat jou woonhuis ontydig verkoop moet word om likiditeit in die bestorwe boedel te genereer. Maak seker daar is genoegsame lewensdekking in plek, wat sal uitbetaal indien jou maat tot sterwe kom om die nodige finansiële leemtes aan te vul. Daar is heelwat kliënte wat by ons kantoor aankom wat nie ’n wettige opgedateerde testament het nie. Die invloed van troues (ook saamblyverhoudings), geboortes, egskeidings en sterftes, het alles ’n wesenlike invloed op jou testamentêre bepaling of keuses. Maak veral seker jou testament bly op datum as jy minderjarige kinders het. Beplan vir risiko Vrouemaand is die ideale geleentheid om jou finansiële adviseur te raadpleeg oor hoe jy jouself deeglik kan beskerm teen risiko’s wat oor jou pad mag kom. Volgens ASISA was meer as 60% van eise vir ernstige siektes onder vroue in 2016, verwant aan kanker en die meeste eise vir ernstige siektes vind plaas tussen die ouderdom van 40 tot 60 jaar (volgens statistiek vanaf PPS 2018). Maak seker dekking vir ernstige siektes, en ongeskiktheid, is deel van jou plan. – Richus Nel (finansiële adviseur by PSG Wealth, Old Oak. E-pos richus.nel@psg.co.za)

Time to find óúr missing billions I found your article on the FBI and Hawks’ collaboration (“FBI tracks down online date scammer in Cape Town”, TygerBurger, 7 August) well-written, with all the relevant facts in place to understand the basics of this crime-busting story. However, the question that immediately sprang to mind was: Why did it take the intervention of the FBI to alert the Hawks in the first place? Surely R4.1 million in the international scheme of things is no big deal. Why would the USA worry to chase down an unknown man half a world away for a measly quarter million dollars? Why did they need the Hawks’ help, when our local lads seem unable to find the missing billions of Rand, or the high-profile thieves? Mind you, the results are impressive. With the (alleged) perpetrator arrested on Friday, in court the following Monday. Nice work Hawks. Now you have perfected the system, please get to it and solve a few local victim’s cases. KN DEVINE Table View

Waar is respek vir gestremdes? Dis met groot bekommernis dat ek gelees het van die onlangse rooftog in die Tygervallei-sentrum. As ’n gereelde besoeker aan die sentrum is die een ding wat ek opgelet het die afwesigheid van sekerheidswagte. Wat my ook dwars in die krop steek, is hoe min mense

omgee in vandag se samelewing. Parkering vir gestremdes word deesdae gebruik eenvoudig omdat mense nie meer omgee waar hulle parkeer nie. Wanneer jy na ’n sekerheidswag soek, veral naby die banke, is daar niemand nie. Tygervallei is ongelukkig nie die enigste winkelsentrum waar die probleem voorkom nie. Oral word daar wyd en syd geproklameer dat motors geklamp sal word. Ek daag die winkelsentrum uit om my ’n lys te verskaf van instansies wat geld gekry het omdat motors geklamp was. Die enigste winkelsentrum waar ek dit wel sien gebeur het, was by Willowbridge. Het ons so laag gedaal dat gestremdes geen plekkie in die son meer het nie? Sies, ek skaam my vir die winkelsentrums wat dieselfde doen. GESTREMDE Boston

Rooftogte is baie kommerwekkend Ek het nou net die berig “Petisie volg na nóg misdaad by sentrum” in die TygerBurger van 7 Augustus gelees; dit is uiters kommerwekkend. Inderdaad is die betrokke sentrum geensins ontwikkel en beplan vanuit ’n sekerheidsoogpunt nie en die paar sekerheidswagte wat met radio’s en hopelik pepersproei toegerus is, het ek nog nie raakgesien nie. Ek merk ook dat daar geensins ’n gewapende reaksiemag in en om die sentrum ontplooi is by hierdie betrokke sentrum nie. Ek verwys ook graag na die gewapende roof by Van Deijl in die Tygervalleisentrum verlede Woensdagaand. Alle winkelsentrums is sagte teikens en daarom word winkeleienaars daagliks beroof.

As gevolg van al die klante kan die sekerheidspersoneel nie binne-in die sentrums optree nie, want klante kan in die kruisvuur gewond of selfs gedood word. Die gewapende sekerheidsreaksiemag kan wel buite op die parkeergebied op die gewapende rowers losbrand. Dit sal dien as werklike voorkomende of afskrikking. Ongelukkig steur die ontwikkelaars en of gebou-eienaars hulle bitter min aan sulke voorkomende maatreëls. Die enigste manier om gewapende rooftogte te voorkom, is om soos die casino’s, veral GrandWest, x-straal-masjiene en metaalverklikkers by elke ingang by die sentrum te installeer. Maar ek dink nie hulle kan dit bekostig of dat die klante daarmee tevrede sal wees nie. GrandWest is die enigste casino wat nog nooit ’n gewapende roof gehad het nie. JOHAN VAN WYK Durbanville

Your kids learn from your deeds I’m experiencing a big problem with parking when I pick up my son from school. I sit in front of the school for 35 minutes to ensure I get parking and not inconvenience other parents. But then you get parents that come one minute before the bell and politely park in the road in front of your car. Normally, this would not bother me because they move before my son gets into the car, but when they come walking along on their own time, not looking left or right to apologise for the inconvenience caused and taking their sweet time to get going (first have a chat) while your car is running and wanting to leave – that makes my blood boil. Then they have the cheek to look all shocked and disgusted

when you hoot for them to hurry up and move. Why do they think just because it’s at a school they can take their time and treat you as the wrong one? They are teaching their children not to consider others and it’s okay for people to wait for you irrespective if you in the wrong. No wonder kids have no respect for others these days, they learn from their parents! TESSA DE KOCK Brackenfell

Wees dankbaar en positief Te midde van geweld, werkloosheid, armoede en al die lelike negatiewe nuus, om van klagtes nie te praat, wil ek vandag pen op papier sit en dankie sê aan Durbanville se munisipaliteit. Twee maal in een week het ons die wonderlikste diens gekry. Vroeg die week lui ons hekklokkie, net om ingelig te word deur twee manne van die munisipaliteit dat hulle die buurt gepatrolleer het om te kyk of daar bome in die afgelope storm beskadig is. Hulle lig ons in dat een van die dennebome voor die huis wel beskadig is en groot skade kan aanrig as dit op ons heining val, en dat hulle dit gaan verwyder. Die boom was binne twee ure verwyder! Tweedens, moes ek verplaasde dokumentasie van die munisipaliteit kry vir belastingdoeleindes. Die volgende dag is ek toe na hul kantore met die versoek om die dokumentasie te kry, waar ’n ene George my binne 15 minute doeltreffend gehelp het. Toe ek die gebou verlaat, kon ek nie anders as om te dink daar is nog hoop vir ons land. Ons moet miskien meer vreugde, positiwiteit en dankbaarheid uitstraal en mekaar se arms bo hou! Ek is dankbaar. EUREKA AUSTIN E-pos

Entries open for budding playwrights The National Arts Festival is calling on new playwrights to step forward with exciting ideas for plays that will inspire and challenge audiences for the 2020 Distell National Playwright Competition. The competition was launched last year in honour of Adam and Rosalie Small, for their contribution to South African literature, philosophy, education, and advocacy against social injustice. Scripts by writers who have not had a script or other written work professionally produced for the stage or television can be

submitted. The plays can be written in any South African language and the competition calls for authentic South African stories that promote diversity and inclusivity. Writers have until 30 September to submit a 10-page sample of their writing, and a precis of the script idea. A finished script is not required for entry. The submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges selected from literary and dramatic fields. Five finalists will be selected for mentored development of the script, before the winning work is selected.

The winning writer will receive a cash prize and see their work produced at the 2020 National Arts Festival, the country’s premier arts showcase and a shop-window for producers and theatres from across the world. “South Africa is endowed with great talent in the arts and we see this initiative as an opportunity to recognise talent, start conversations, encourage freedom of thought and imagination. Importantly, and particularly given our history as a country, we see this competition as a vehicle to bring people

together by overcoming and promoting our rich cultural diversity,” says Bridgitte Backman, corporate and regulatory affairs director at Distell. National Arts Festival executive producer Nobesuthu Rayi, says, “With this award, talented writers are given priceless mentorship and the winner will see their play on stage at the end of the process. It is a great start for a budding writer.” Entrants must be over 18 (and not in high school) and a South African citizen. V Visit www.nationalartsfestival.co.za for more information.

Finding the perfect fixer-upper B

uying and renovating a fixer-upper property – one that’s a little outdated or run-down – is a time-honoured tradition for bargainhunting buyers looking to maximise their return on investment. Finding the right property is integral to the success of this strategy – a poorly chosen project could easily cost far more to renovate than it could ever recoup in a sale. How do you spot a fixer-upper that’s worth the time and cash investment? Craig Mott, Cape Town regional sales manager of the Rawson Property Group, says these are the most important elements to look out for:

Do your homework before investing in a fixer-upper. Great location “If there’s one thing you can’t change unstable foundations or weathered roof about a property, it’s location,” says Mott. beams, for example, can take a huge amount “If a house is in a bad neighbourhood, an in- of money and expertise to repair,” he says. convenient position, or too close to an unde- “This is seldom worthwhile for buyers hopsirable structure like a cellphone tower or ing to resell for a profit in the short to median ugly apartment block, you can do the um term.

If the kitchen or bathrooms are in a weird location, or Structurally sound the bedrooms are all in the coldest, darkest A sound structure is essential in order to part of the home, it’s going to be difficult to keep renovation costs down, says Mott. solve that problem in a cost-effective man“Homes with serious structural faults, like ner.”

Mott recommends looking for homes with convenient room “clusters” – a comfortable bedroom wing, a central kitchen, dining and living area, and logically placed entrances, garden access and bathrooms. “This enables you to remove a few, nonloadbearing walls to open things up if necessary, and you won’t end up with a family bathroom in the middle of your living space,” he says.

Predictable renovation costs Building work is notorious for being unpredictable, but it’s vital to at least understand the renovation cost ballpark you’re playing in before buying a fixer-upper, says Mott. Try and set budgets for individual items or sections of the home, for example, set a price per m² for flooring and stick to it. It can be very easy to get emotionally caught up on a project and choose finishes with your heart and not your wallet. “To make a profit on a fixer-upper, the purchase price plus the total renovation cost needs to be low enough that you can recoup your investment – with a healthy profit – not too far down the line,” he explains. “If you don’t fully understand the renovation costs, it’s all too easy to end up with a money-drain rather than a moneyspinner.” While experienced house-flippers may be able to estimate renovation costs on sight, Mott says newbies should always consult with a construction expert before making a purchase if possible. Don’t forget to assign a portion of your renovation costs

to the garden or green areas, This is often overlooked and can be a deal-breaker if the building is beautifully renovated and the garden and outside areas are left unattended. “It’s all about going in with your eyes wide open,” he says. “Naive optimism has no place in a fixer-upper project. If you do your homework, renovating run-down homes can be a profitable property investment.”
