With spring now well and truly upon us, the thoughts of many homeowners turn to how they can best improve their properties – both internally and externally.
For those of you who’ve never attempted this kind of thing before, doing any major renovations may seem like a huge task and one which carries significant financial burdens….but for what benefits?
You may consider it a luxury you cannot afford or you may be sceptical or have had a bad experience in the past with a tradesman or a company which has previously done work around your home.
In this article we will clear up some of the urban myths about home renovations and explain how if you deal with a reputable company like Yes I Can Renovations, renovating your home can be a very fulfilling experience which will not only give you a lot of satisfaction but also add considerable value to your property.
In terms of the market value of your home increasing upon renovation, don’t just take our word for it.
You need only visit the websites of most of Australia’s major banks and it’s there for you in black and white that not only can the right renovations add to the value of your property, but in the case of an investment property, renovating will help expedite the process of recouping your outlay when reselling.
THE RIGHT CHOICE
But for the most independent and unbiased view of whether renovations are ‘worth it’, it is hard to look beyond the information supplied by Choice.
Formerly known as the Australian Consumers’ Association, Choice has been Australia’s leading consumer advocacy group for over 60 years and their investigations have shown that a full renovation of either your bathroom or your kitchen can add up to 10 percent to the value of your property over time.
This is one of the reasons why remodelling either or both of these rooms is so important if you’re looking to put your home on the market.
But even if you have no intention of selling, you still want your bathroom to be comfortable and stylish and for your kitchen to be both modern and practical.
Without a doubt one of the best ways to win over potential property buyers is for them to see your recently remodelled bathroom and/or kitchen – professionally renovated by a company with the credentials of Yes I Can Renovations.
At the same time, if you are looking to sell, it is important that you bear in mind that your newly renovated room/s should still blend in with the rest of the house.
Another point to consider when you’re looking to sell is that there is no point spending a small fortune on bathroom and kitchen renovations if these improvements don’t look natural (such as in the case of a delipidated house).
There have been instances where we have declined jobs on this basis, explaining to homeowners that it’s in their best interests to sell their home ‘as is’, rather than over-capitalising on renovations.
With Sydney in lockdown for much of the past 18 months owing to COVID-19, the demand for home renovations continues to grow, both in terms of Do It Yourself projects and renovation work done by professional companies and tradesmen.
Our recent blog titled Professional Bathroom Renovation Versus Do It Yourself underlines the fact that bathroom renovation is a task not be to be attempted by a DIY-er as a qualified tradesman is required for just about every step of the project.
In the kitchen, there are some tasks which a talented DIY-er can manage, but again, experienced, licensed and fully insured electricians, plumbers, carpenters and floorers are required for most of the steps of a full kitchen renovation and by sticking with a professional company like Yes I Can Renovations you are guaranteed industry-leading building techniques and warranties.
Along with renovating your kitchen/bathroom, another almost sure-fire method of increasing the market value of your property is by adding an outdoor area such as a deck, pergola, patio or terrace.
These are areas where you can entertain your guests and for your family to enjoy all year round, so they are a worthwhile renovation option whether or not you plan to sell your home.
Yes I Can Project Renovations is Sydney’s fastest growing building company and in addition to our expertise with regard to internal renovations (kitchens, bathrooms and full home renovations), we also offer more than 20 other professional home improvement services, including decking and pergolas.
Our renovations experts will be able to provide you with options of how to achieve the best results, be it through some new decking or a lovely garden pergola, to mention just a couple of examples.
A pergola is a practical yet creative way to bring an existing part of your property to life and we will run through the different styles, materials and colours available when we visit you to provide an obligation-free quote.
So if you’ve been dreaming of a new bathroom or kitchen or improving or remodelling any other area of your home, Yes I Can Renovations is the company for you.
A phone conversation with one of our friendly team of renovation experts will give you a fairly accurate guide as to the cost of your renovation, which we will follow up with a written quote when we come out to have a look at the work that needs doing.
