Renovations and remodelling is always welcomed by the homeowner. Updating your home and keeping it up to date is always a good idea, especially when selling is on the cards in the future. There are a few things that home buyers and real-estate appraisal experts love to see when they are on the lookout for new homes. From revamping kitchens to updating bathrooms – we look at what types of renovations can increase the value of your home.
A fully functional and newly renovated kitchen is always important when it comes to increasing value. An outdated kitchen can easily bring down the value of your home. If you are considering a kitchen revamp carefully consider the cost of your materials versus the value of the kitchen afterwards. A big project like a kitchen revamp is not something you want to lose any money on in the end.
One of the first things people look out for before buying a home is the condition of the bathrooms. Old bathrooms with outdated tiles can really put potential buyers off. Adding an extra bathroom is always a good idea if you have the space. If not, update the fittings, fixtures and amenities in your current bathrooms.
Everybody loves a study in a home. Having to convert a bedroom into a study is not always convenient, so creating the space for one by additional building, is a sure way to increase the value of your home.
A beautiful garden can sell any type of home. If a garden is well kept and creatively designed, you can be guaranteed that it will increase the value of your home. A large garden with lots of lawn, a pool and a patio is a seller for sure. Whether you are selling or not, a home that looks gorgeous from the street is what every homeowner strives for.
Believe it or not, but outside entertainment areas or epic braai areas are an important element that will add to your home’s overall value. Multifunctional outdoor entertainment areas are something buyers are always looking for.
