Whether your renovations are big like adding a new room or small like new light fittings, home renovations, if done right, can increase the value of your home. Relatively minor changes to your home can add significant value to your property. Making careful choices about what kind of renovations to undertake is critical. Unnecessary renovation work can cost a lot and not add much value to your home.
Insulation adds to your home due to savings on power to heat and cool your home, and is considered a necessity by many homebuyers.
If there is enough space adding a deck is one of the easiest ways to add value to your property. A good deck creates the much-desired ‘indoor-outdoor flow’, and potential homebuyers will visualise entertaining guests when inspecting properties.
A modern, tidy looking kitchen can seriously improve a home’s value. Buyers know a lot of time will be spent in the kitchen of any house that they buy. The state of your current kitchen, budget, end goal and advice from a renovation professional will determine what options for kitchen renovations is right for you.
An old looking bathroom can immediately date the entire property to a prospective buyer. Bathroom updates don’t need to be overly expensive or difficult, simple things like replacing the fixtures or cabinet fronts, with good lighting can quickly modernise the entire bathroom.
First impressions last, and creating curb appeal or a desirable entrance to your home is one of the best ways to increase your home’s value and help sell your home. A prospective buyer’s first memory of the house will stick and a little effort can go a long way to improve the look of your homes front area and entrance.
Make sure gardens and lawns are tidy and looking good add few plants if necessary. Painting the entranceway is a great way to really lift the front of the house.
