Renovation Builders Brisbane Increase Value

How Do You Increase Your Property’s Value?

Want to increase your property value ahead of putting it on the market? While some homeowners invest solely in upgrades and remodelling, have you thought about renovation builders Brisbane to increase the value of your house by investing in specific areas? With Expand Renovate‘s experience and full design service, you can majorly improve your home renovations and get top dollar for your property.

Freshen up the paint

The fresh layer of paint can add as much as several thousands of dollars to your property’s sale price. Most house shoppers prefer neutral tones, such as beige and grey or taupe so if you plan to update your interior colour scheme, avoid bright colours. When you factor in all of the necessities such as brushes, paint trays, and several gallons of paint, you should expect to spend up to $300 on one room, unless you hire professional painters.

Increase The Street Appeal

You can go as fancy as you want on your landscaped areas, but even basic lawn maintenance can give you a great benefit once you put your house up for sale. If you want to see bigger returns, be prepared to shell out more money on street appeal including greenery, flower beds, benches, and walkways.

Invest In The Kitchen Areas

Of all the places in your house, the kitchen is the most important one. Most buyers can tell if you have neglected kitchen, and if you aren’t looking to invest between $3,000 and $5,000 in a new countertop, you should at least consider spending a few hundred dollars on new appliances and fixtures. In the real estate world, a nice modern kitchen makes a big difference between making a sale and missing it.

Update The Bathroom

The bathroom is another important part of your house that deserves your attention (and investment) as much as the kitchen does. Needless to say, a spotless, polished bathroom with new fixtures and appliances will significantly boost your chances of selling your house. If you decide to go ahead with an expensive bathroom remodel, the good news is that you will likely get most of your money back.

Replace the Entry Doors

The entry/exit doors are the face of your house, and repainting or replacing it with a new one could help you to make a favourable impression on a potential home buyer. Consider an awning or portico above the front door, installing a new doorbell and putting up a welcome sign. All these upgrades appear minor, yet they can make homebuyers feel welcome before they see the inside of your property.

Pay Attention to the Flooring

Most buyers prefer hardwood floors. However, if you don’t have the money to replace the flooring, and your house has a lot of carpets, replace the ones that are worn out and soiled. If you have a limited budget, make sure to start with rooms that have the worst carpet and work down the ladder from there. If you don’t replace carpets, at least be sure to shampoo them.

Brighten it up

Replace the old light fixtures, as dim lights can take away from your property’s features. Investing as much as a few hundred dollars in new lighting throughout the house can go a long way, as it will help potential buyers focus on your property.

Go Smart Technology

Equipping your property with smart home electronics could significantly boost its value in the eyes of a prospective buyer. Today’s homeowners are increasingly reliant on features such as app-controlled thermostats, lighting and door locks among other things. Some of the smart upgrades are relatively inexpensive, and if you want to add value to your house with some automated features that you can control from your smartphone, you should consider investing in it.
