Many Australians are waking up to the fact that home renovations can increase the value of a home when it is put up for sale on the Perth market. By far, there are two renovations that blow others out of the water when it comes to increasing the value of a home. The first is a DIY “renovation” that isn’t really a renovation, but more like maintenance. The second is a renovation that we will be happy to take care of for you.
Refreshing the Front of Your Home
If you don’t have any money to invest but still want to increase the resale value of your home, you can do it for less than $500. The first thing that prospective buyers see when they look at your home is the front. You can improve this greatly on your own without a lot of money.
If you have a timber picket fence in front, paint it. Next, make sure to clear your yard of all rubbish. Then, clean the concrete. If you have trees and shrubs, be sure to prune them. Also, you must keep the lawn freshly-mowed. For an inexpensive cosmetic touch, buy some new plants, flowers and mulch. This doesn’t sound like a lot, but it can work wonders for how prospective buyers perceive your home.
If you are going to renovate only one room in your home, the one that provides the biggest boost in resale value is the kitchen. By far. It isn’t even close. Buyers will have their own furniture and decorations, but the kitchen is the one thing they have to accept “as is.” It is to your advantage to make that one room look as good as possible.
The way to do it is to renovate and update, with new appliances, countertops and cabinets. Updating the windows is a very nice touch that can reap dividends. Make the kitchen look as modern as possible. Another popular choice: an outdoor kitchen. A lot of people prefer the alfresco living/outdoor kitchen strategy because it increases space and enhances lifestyle.
