The Local property market and your home.
Our local area has seen some good growth this year while other areas growth has not been as high. With the large amount of development in our area and improved infrastructure, it is certainly an exciting time for buyers and sellers wanting to be active in our local property market.
It is easy to improve your home for sale by doing little things. If you have the budget you can create new vigour to a room or two and the results are amazing. Just by upgrading your bathroom or kitchen can give your home the facelift it may need.
One of the most obvious benefits of renovating your home is the increased home value that comes with it. Making upgrades to your home’s layout, size or building materials can make a difference when it comes to resale value, so the decision to renovate will pay off both for your family while you’re still living there and in the long run when it’s time to sell. Buyers looking to purchase want to see new furnishings, new stoves, dishwashers and may not have the time to renovate themselves.
Another option is to replace old carpets and flooring with new modern styles. Doing this can make a massive difference to the overall look and feel of your home.
Gardens and landscaping also can greatly improve street appeal. The first moment a buyer looks at the outside of your home starts their mind thinking if they want to ‘live’ in your home. Creating a beautiful outdoor space encourages them to visualize living there.
My new property listing at 703 Greenbank Rd North Maclean that has just hit the market did just that. The owners wanted to make an impact in the market and have done a beautiful job renovating their home. The new garden walk path takes you on a lovely setting through the gardens with new fencing surrounding on a well situated 5.08 ha block.
The curb appeal of your home is incredibly important when it comes time to sell. The first impression of a home that someone will have is from the look of the exterior. It is said that a good first impression of a home can adds five percent to its value. Make sure your exterior paint and details are up to par. The structure is solid with updated features were done for the property and the result is amazing.
