If you’ve been thinking of selling your house soon, or perhaps even just plan on doing it at some point in the future, you’ve likely been considering how best to increase the value of your home. The Australian real estate market can be competitive and you want to make sure that you don’t undersell your property but you also need to make sure whatever investments you are making into your property are worthwhile. Below are 5 of the best ways to maximise the value of your house and make sure you get the price you deserve:
A Modern Master Suite
A beautiful new master suite will give you both a lot of enjoyment and increase the amount your house will sell for in the future. By including a large bedroom, ensuite and perhaps even a lounge area in your new master suite, you’ll have much more space to relax and you can design the space to suit your specific needs. Adding a master suite will make your home feel a lot more modern and grand.
Add a Stunning View
Adding a second storey extension means that you will have the opportunity for a much better view. For example, if you live on the outskirts of the CBD, then adding a second floor which incorporates floor to ceiling windows can give you sweeping, panoramic views of the nighttime city lights which could massively increase the value of your property.
Update your Flooring
Different kinds of flooring are constantly coming in and out of fashion which means that chances are, if your flooring was put in a long time ago, it’s likely detracting from the look, feel and value of your property. This doesn’t mean that you should be ripping up your floors with every new interior design trend that appears or gets revived (you would probably go bankrupt) but it simply means that you should prioritise refreshing your flooring when you’re trying to maximise the value of your property. We recommend opting for a durable and stylishly timeless option.
Add Another Bedroom
Think about it, a four-bedroom house is much more valuable than a 2 bedroom house. An extension which includes an extra bedroom or two is perfect because it means that you have extra space and can accommodate guests and visitors in your home. When it comes time to move out and sell, you will then likely make your money back plus extra, since additional bedrooms will greatly increase your selling price. It’s pretty much a win-win.
Raise your house
Raising your house is the perfect way to expand your home without having to sacrifice any of your outdoor space. It can act as the perfect guest retreat if you often have people come to stay, or perhaps your family is growing and you need more space or maybe you just want more storage space. Either way, this will add a lot of value to your home due to the massive amount of space you will gain. What’s more, a raised house is perfect if you live in an area which is prone to flooding as it helps to prevent extensive damage.
