Why it’s better to improve than move
If you love the street you’re in, and your kids love their friends and school, why throw all that away just because you’ve outgrown your house?
More and more Perth home owners are realising that a quality renovation will give you the space and lifestyle upgrade that you want at a fraction of the cost of building a new home. Most Perth renovation projects don’t even require you to vacate during construction.
So why move?
Renovating in WA & Australia is on the rise.
It’s official. Australians are spending more than ever before on renovating their homes, with a record $2 billion spent on home refurbishments in the last 12 months, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
This increase is a rise of around 30 per cent over the past decade, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing. Financially, it’s a no-brainer.
By choosing to renovate instead of selling up and moving, you save on real estate agent fees, removalist costs, government stamp duty and more. That’s tens of thousands of dollars.
Renovation is also far cheaper than building an entirely new home or completing a knockdown and rebuild. It allows you to keep your existing home and every cent you spend on it goes towards improving the space around you.
Take your home from “not quite right” to perfect.
Renovating gives you the chance to fix the parts of you home that don’t work and keep the things about your home that you do love.
Imagine having bigger bedrooms, higher ceilings, and new rooms for entertainment. When you look around and think about what you’d like to extend or change, the list can be as limitless as your imagination.
Best of all, renovations can preserve the character of your house while making it shine like new.
Keep your memories, and get ready to make new ones
Homes are precious. They hold memories and experiences that cannot be valued by an estate agent.
When you move or rebuild, you might gain a new home, but you lose something that cannot be replaced. By choosing to renovate, you can keep the walls and the roof that hold your history, and create new experiences with the improvements you make.
Keeping the home you love while making it even better? That’s priceless.
