Home improvements and DIY are increasingly popular in the Perth, Australia area. There are several reasons for this:
- People want to sell their homes for maximum value
- People don’t want to move (for various reasons) but have outgrown their existing home and home improvements make good sense.
Selling Your Home?
If you’re selling your home, you’ll want to maximise its curb appeal. This might mean doing some work outside. But you’ll also want to stage your home indoors as well for optimum space and look / feel. Freshening it up with paint, wallpaper, some strategic furniture placement, and maybe even adding a home extension could help dramatically. Extensions are increasing in popularity in Perth and other Australia areas. Homes can have a dramatic increase in value if you extend the floor space with a home extension and some creative decorating. The offer you receive on your house could be far higher than the cost of the home improvements you invested.
Staying in Your Home but Wanting to Make it Better?
The home improvement industry in Australia is expected to grow by double digits in the next several years as people work to add value to their home. One of the reasons for this is that people aren’t necessarily trading up to a bigger house when they outgrow theirs. A lot of people no longer buy a starter home and upgrade later on. Many more than ever are more likely to put on a home extension instead…due to the high cost and frustrations associated with buying and selling a house.
Many homeowners in Australia aren’t calling contractors for every job that needs to be done. Many now try their hand at doing a lot of their renovations themselves. But certain home improvements will always require a skilled professional. Adding a home extension in Perth or elsewhere, for instance, requires a skilled professional. It’s important to focus on quality rather than costs alone so many people will be turning to skilled home extension professionals in their local area who can ensure that there is a logical design, approval, construction, and completion process.
Whether you’re doing a bit of work or something major such as a home extension that involves a ground floor extension, a second story extension, it’s important to do your homework so you can choose the right design (to maximise your living space and the value of your home) and /or materials, and where you can’t DIY, take the time to find the right company to deal with (so you’re pleased with the results and so that frustration during the process is minimised). Your home could be transformed in a matter of just a few months, leaving you with more living space that looks fresh and new and / or the ability to sell it for a bigger profit.
