Are Pre-Sale Renovations Wise?

When selling a home it is a normal desire to obtain as high a price as possible for the premises, and many owners go to extremes to make this happen, only to find that it has not made the difference they thought it would, but instead served to make potential buyers move on to check out other homes instead. This is because they over capitalised on installing items like swimming pools, games rooms or other extensions that many people don’t find necessary which in turn raised the overall price of the property. In many cases, people have their own ideas as to what works for them or does not and often prefer to make their own changes to a new home.
Real estate Sydney differs in value between areas and therefore has a lot to do with the price you can reasonably expect to get before any renovations are carried out. If you have been given some advice by someone in real estate who has knowledge in this area, as to what renovations may help get a better price, then carry on. But don’t do renovations that have not been advised as you may just be throwing good money away doing them and not getting the desired outcome anyway.
If you are unsure, then concentrate on the general condition of your home. For example, how is your paintwork holding up? Does it need redoing or touching up perhaps? Are your floors all sound with no loose boards, and the house stumps in good shape? Check your windows if they are the older style to ensure that no putty is missing around the glass edge. If your fence is in a less than desirable condition, do something about it to push up the eye appeal of your home which will also help your desired price seem reasonable to buyers. The right property management in Sydney will most likely up your chances more for a better price than expensive renovations.
After repairs have been done, give the premises a through clean, making carpets, kitchen and bathroom priority areas. Then think about the first view buyers see when they arrive, and that is your front yard of course. If you do the right thing, they will see carefully tended, weed free gardens, neatly mown lawns behind a fence that does not need repair. First impressions count for a lot and are lasting. Make sure yours is a good one. If you have take care of all the above and are still thinking more could be done, see your local real estate, and get professional advice. This is all part of their expertise, and they will give you the right advice.
