Weekly Market Wrap – Renovation fever is in the air
Renovation fever is in the air. As spring approaches, homes are being primped ahead of the peak selling season and the slew of ‘Super Saturdays’ that will soon be upon us.
If you’re preparing to list your home, consider what updates you could make to ensure your home stands out from the crowd. With The Block back on our screens it can be tempting to get carried away knocking down walls or undertaking a complete overhaul of the kitchen, but it’s best to keep it simple.
Start by engaging a professional external cleaner to wash the walls, clean the windows and tidy the gutters. For the home’s entrance add a new doormat and lush potted plant, and install a pendant light or colourful runner to create instant impact.
A fresh lick of timeless white paint will instantly brighten any home and creates a blank canvas for potential buyers to imagine their own belongings within, while tired bathrooms and kitchens are easily refreshed by having the tiles re-grouted.
Even small changes like new cabinetry knobs and light fittings can make a huge difference to the feel of your home.
Before you get started it’s best to speak with your local agent who can provide suggestions on what updates are best based on your suburb and target buyers. Click here to find your local office.
