As a renovation expert in Brisbane, we know that many Aussies like to makeover their homes prior to selling, as they recognise that this can maximise their selling price. Of course, you don’t have to be selling to renovate your home, but if you are renovating, how do you know if it’s going to be worth the money?
We all realise that some renovations definitely increase the value of your home (such as bathroom and kitchen renovations in Brisbane), but what about curb appeal, adding a driveway, an outdoor entertainment space and an alfresco dining area?
Before you pick up the phone to call your local renovation company, let’s take a look at the renovations that give you value for money and a nice increase in your home’s value.
Kitchens: If you want the most bang for your buck, you can’t ignore a good kitchen makeover. Any renovation expert worth their salt will tell you that kitchen renovations in Brisbane are just about the best way to increase the value of your home. You don’t even have to spend huge on your kitchen, because for a small budget of $10K to $20K for example, you can get a really great kitchen and still add $50K to $60K to the value of your home.
Bathrooms: Updating your existing bathrooms with clean and modern fixtures and fittings is another win-win situation. For a $10K to $20 budget, you can really make a huge difference to the look and feel of your home and at JEB Built, we have seen homeowners add 3 to 4 times the cost of their bathroom renovations to the value of their home. Maybe it’s time to call in a renovation expert?
Curb appeal: We can all agree that the front façade and garden area of your home sets the stage for what’s inside. So spending some of your budget on painting, adding a garage, replacing the turf or adding a driveway and generally making your home look perfect from the street, definitely adds value to your home. Your local renovation company can help you to decide the best way to increase your curb appeal to maximise your home’s value.
Backyards: You can’t forget the value of a great backyard, particularly with the trend towards indoors/outdoors living in Queensland. A smooth transition from inside to outside with an alfresco dining area, beautiful pool surrounds and even an outdoor kitchen area will seriously increase the value of your home.
