Owning a property is one of the largest challenges we all face. Finding the right place then getting a loan to purchase, then going through the ordeal of securing the purchase can make anyone go mad.
Once purchased we then usually go into renovation mode. From freshening up the paint to changing the flooring from that horrible carpet from the 80’s are usually the first jobs we get to. We all strive to improve our lifestyle and improving where we live is a part of that.
The other side of the story is selling an old tired home. How do we get top dollar for our old place. Improving the sale price is what everyone wants. The challenge here is to spend some money to improve the sale price but not to spend that much that it negates the money that goes into your pocket at the end. Improving the kerb appeal of your home is a good cost-effective way to start adding value.
