Is it time to take on some home improvements? You don’t have to worry about expensive renovations! Whether you’re thinking about moving on and want to achieve the best possible sale price, or you’d just like to make some improvements so you can enjoy a more liveable home, our handyman tips will help you get more bang for your buck.
TOP 5 TIPS FOR IMPROVING YOUR PLACE
Clean It Up, Inside and Out
It sounds pretty obvious, right? But there are many of us who are guilty of letting those little jobs go — like decluttering the garage, organising the cupboards, properly cleaning the kitchen, laundry and bathroom or giving the yard a tidy-up. Keeping your place clean and tidy will not only improve the look of your property, it will also make your life so much easier.
Start With The Most Visible Repairs
If you’re looking to save money, start with those things that are crying out for maintenance. From leaking taps to broken fences or rotting decks, these are the most important jobs to tend to before you worry about cosmetic updates. Homes which require an array of urgent repairs may not only turn off buyers but potentially decrease your sale price. And if you’re happy with your home and don’t want to sell, these problems can turn into bigger, more expensive issues if left unchecked.
Get Some Curb Appeal
First impressions really do count, so make sure your front yard and exterior is looking as appealing as possible. Whether your driveway or paths have seen better days and are overdue for a high pressure clean, or your property requires a new fence or urgent fence repairs, these simple jobs can really make all the difference when improving your property quickly and cost-effectively.
Kitchens and Bathrooms Sell Homes
You may have already heard real estate agents spruiking this piece of advice: if you’re planning on improving your property, take note of the state of your kitchen and bathroom. However, you don’t have to take on a complete renovation to increase the functionality and style of your kitchen and bathroom. Simple fixes like painting the cupboards or vanity or retiling outdated floor and wall tiles, can immediately improve the look of your kitchen and bathroom.
Create An Enviable Outdoor Space
You don’t have to live on an acreage to enjoy an enviable outdoor space. Even the smallest blocks have the potential to create a peaceful sanctuary where you (or potential buyers) can see themselves unwinding. Decks, pergolas and verandas will help create a conversation between your property and its outdoor areas. Add some stylish outdoor furniture, a BBQ and some pot plants, and you’ve just created another great feature for your abode.
