Whether renovating your property or even an investment property we all want to own following:
– A well organised renovation that keeps to time, budget and where headaches are minimized.
– A comfortable, stylish and functional space or home that people desire to reside in which others will too.
– A renovation that achieves an instantaneous increase in the value of the exact property.
Here are Kellie’s top 5 suggestions to help accomplish that:
1. What is the purpose of renovating? From making space to giving a good start, there are numerous reasons, and you will know yours. Now, in case you never want to sell and adding value is less of an issue that adding style, comfort and function you might not have to continue reading. But if your renovation is about a lot more than this consider the following:
– If you plan to sell right away or somewhere in the next five-years, think about the needs of your audience.
– If you want to add instant value find out which homes locally are available at peak price and what they’ve got you could add.
2. How do you add the biggest bang for your buck?
The general rule is when your kitchen and bathroom present well, this adds value and attracts buyers. So as a rule stick to this, but think of ways that one could make them more desirable as cheaply as is possible. The addition of handles, re-laminating versus replacing, a fresh paint job and de-cluttering could make all the difference.
3. It all commences with an idea.
Write all this down, yes yes it’s true range from place to place and make a strategy. This will detail what will stay, what you’ll remove and what’s needed and better still this is exactly what you’ll use as your guide for tradespeople. I often develop a Plan A (my ideal) plus a Plan B (what I’ll do if my budget doesn’t cover Plan A) and you may ask for quotes for both.
4. Who do you need to help?
Your plan offers you the data you have to work out individual preference should complete your renovation project. Going with recommended trades people always beats calling someone on wing along with a prayer, so discuss with for recommendations.
5. How do you schedule it?
This isn’t always something you can exercise easily by yourself but start with asking tradespeople how they would work with a particular job (would they are available once, or need to keep coming back), can they function as the first in or would another trades person should appear in before them, inquire further just how long they’ll must get the job done etc. AND reject couple of hours on a single or 2 days where they will all come and quote.
