We have more than 70 years’ combined experience in providing home renovations to Perth homeowners. Many of them buy older homes and renovate them for profit. We have worked with many “flippers” who don’t want to do the work themselves but have a keen eye for properties that they can buy low, renovate and turn a profit selling.
Even though our specialty is home renovation, we like to keep an eye on the housing market so we can be of the utmost service to our growing legion of satisfied customers. We recently found a short blog post identifying the five features homebuyers are looking for the most. We already knew about four of these but aren’t surprised that #4 turned up on the list.
Here are five features homebuyers want to see when looking at a home.
Central Air Conditioning
This is really a no-brainer. We’re in Australia and our climate has changed. People want air conditioning. If two homes are roughly equal except for air conditioning, guess which one the buyer will choose.
Your home is your largest investment. For most of us, our car or truck is our second-largest investment. People want a garage to protect their car or truck. We can build one for you easily as part of a home renovation, for a lot less than you think.
Landscaping is a major part of your home’s kerb appeal. Great landscaping is one of the first things people notice before they enter your home. This is easily done as a DIY or by professional landscapers.
As the cost of electricity rises, more and more people want to use solar power to provide some of their electricity or go “off the power grid” completely. This can often involve shoring up your roof.
Yes: they want a BBQ. It doesn’t have to be a restaurant-quality BBQ but it should be nice enough to be appealing.
