Make smart decisions to enhance your home's future worth
Building or buying a home is a big purchasing decision, one of largest you will probably ever make! So we’ve put together a list of things to consider that may help increase the resale and future value of your home.
Multiple living areas tend to add value to a home. For growing to large families, more than one living area can make a huge difference to how family members interact at home given the generous and varied space available. All our double storey home designs have a second living space upstairs as standard, however choosing a facade with a balcony, or a second master on the ground floor will no doubt add living space and value.
Alfresco entertaining areas are big in demand across all types of buyers, so it can add a lot of value. By extending this space with landscaping and hardscaping (think permanent seating in the garden) will definitely increase the appeal and value.
Some buyers see pools as an essential part of any home, while others may feel it’s part of the home that needs regular maintenance. If adding a pool suits your lifestyle and needs, increased the sale price for similar homes in the area will pay dividends when it comes time to deciding whether or not to put one in.
The saying “kitchens sell houses” is one we’ve all heard before. But ask any real estate agent and they will likely be able to substantiate the claim. A stunning kitchen bursting with functionality and premium finishes will win the hearts of most buyers. A butler’s pantry can also help add some real ‘wow’ factor to this important part of your home.
Buyers will be looking for clever storage solutions that will help free up some space. With a double storey home, there’s opportunity to utilise space under the staircase. Usually there’s also enough space to include a linen closet upstairs and a study nook or built in cabinetry downstairs.
