This is the last instalment of my Renovating 101 series. You may have been following along and wondered if a renovation is worth all of the time, effort, and money. Today I'm sharing with you my top reasons as to why a renovation is worth the stress. Keep reading to find out why.
It seriously is! It may sound like a crazy and stressful thing to do, but there are so many pros to renovating a home and it's a great investment that (if you're smart) you will rarely lose money on. Plus, who doesn't walking into a fresh and updated space?!
It increases the property value
A renovation can increase the property value of your home and this is a great thing if you plan on selling it. It's always a great idea to look at other houses on the market in your area so you can see what you need to offer to buyers in certain price range. Property values will always continue to increase over time, but a renovation is the best way to get a significant increase.
it Attracts more buyers
Lots of people are scared by the thought of renovating a home and by renovating your home you can reach a bigger group of buyers. Many people are looking for something move-in ready and stress-free. An updated home looks more appealing to buyers and sell a little faster than an older home that hasn't gone through a renovation.
it is a smart investment
Owning a home is an investment and spending money on a renovation is an investment as well. It's a smart investment too because you will rarely lose money on a renovated home. If you're thinking of selling your home it's important to consider what may need to be prepared in order to sell. This can mean taking to the time to do research, go on Pinterest, or look at showhomes to see what buyers will be looking for in your area. A renovation can be scary because you don't see the return until you sell, but it's so worth it once your home is sold!
