Thinking about a home renovation? Take a look at the helpful tips below:
Leave your personal flair for your own space. When doing work or building a new home for sale or rental, keep designs neutral to appeal to as broad a market as possible.
While it’s tempting to provide eye-catching add-ons in a home for sale such as a jacuzzi or electronics system, repairs should be dealt with first. Buyers will look at the fundamentals of the home, so a leaky roof, for example, could be a deal-breaker no matter how many features the home may contain.
The trend today is more towards quality than quantity, so improving an existing space is often preferred to large additions which may not see as much of a return.
Upgrades to kitchens and bathrooms often see the biggest returns. This may not mean an entire overhaul either. An upgrade to fixtures, lighting and tile along with a coat of paint can often go a long way to being profitable for you.
Don’t be tempted to work ‘under the table’ in order to save a few dollars on your renovation. Be wary of renovators who don’t have an address or business name, don’t issue a written contract, or offer a discount if you pay cash.
These renovators are often uninsured or unlicensed and product warranties may not be valid if a recognized renovator does not install the items. Plus, any work they do can create health and safety problems, including fire. Paying in cash with underground renovators also gives you no recourse if things do go wrong. And we’ve all heard the horror stories of renovators who upon payment simply vanish, along with your money.
Do the work on your home legally, for your own safety and peace-of-mind. Always insist on getting the required permits and inspections. Plus, get a clear, unambiguous contract that includes start and end dates, and hold off on signing anything before looking it over, preferably with a lawyer first.
