With property prices continuing to drop in Sydney, with some reporting that in 2019 property prices could fall by 25% or more, it’s a buyers market. Does this mean that homeowners will rush to get their property on the market before prices fall even further? Or will they hang on to their investment, waiting for the storm to pass?
With such uncertainty surrounding the value of property, is this a time for homeowners to consider renovations? You would assume no, as why would you invest more money into a property that is seemingly losing value with nothing you can do to prevent it? We’ll explain why we disagree:
For those that have invested heavily in their property, being able to move home at a time like this is simply out of the question. So what do you do? Instead of looking for a better home, choose to improve the home that you live in. Love where you live.
There are those homes that would warrant a higher price in today’s market if they were more aesthetically appealing. Renovating your property to make it more appealing to buyers (and get a higher price) is another choice homeowners face.
With more competition in the market, people trying to get the best possible price while they still can, it is important for your home to have a competitive edge if you are going to sell. Renovations, small or large, can give you a competitive edge.
With more pressure from the NSW Government to make homes energy efficient and eco-friendly, renovating your home whilst considering energy saving solutions can give you long-term cost saving benefits that you can gain from in the short term too!
Windows. They are one of the most important features of a home, inside and out. They determine the amount of light in a room, how much air can circulate during those hot summer months, and let’s be honest, need to be aesthetically appealing.
Yet people are often put off at the thought of replacing windows. Why? It’s not an easy task.
From measuring and selecting the new windows for each room of the house (a bathroom window choice is very different to a bedroom window) removing the existing windows (with a great deal of care) to perfect measurements and expert installation, replacing windows often requires professionals. And renovating comes at a cost, often people choosing to save where they can. Are new windows really worth the hassle…
