Although Kerdon is well developed and there is not a great deal of new home construction in the area, the quality of some of the original old homes means that there is plenty of renovation activity happening.
There are plenty of 'timber and tin' homes in the area, which means carpenters are in hot demand. If you are getting your old Queenslander renovated, make sure your chippie has a carpenters insurance policy in place. It will give you peace of mind in case something goes wrong on the build.
Kedron is a great place to live, and the opportunity to buy or renovate one of the beautiful old homes in the area is definitely worth considering.
As with many inner city areas, Kedron has a thriving small business community. For these businesses it is important to have adequate business insurance in place.
