After a long slump, real estate sales in Brisbane are picking up. As winter comes to a close and the summer buying season begins, it is the perfect time for savvy homeowners to renovate and maximise the profits from the sale of their homes.
According to a July 10, 2012 News Ltd. article, Cheap and cheerful houses in Brisbane, 2012 has seen a boom in home sales in the under $350,000 market, with houses under that price tag accounting for almost 36% of all home sales in Brisbane. Those homes for sale under $500,000 account for 39% of home sales.
Another News Ltd. release, Tide turning for river real estate, notes that there was a significant correction in the prices of prestigious Brisbane river front property after the 2011 floods, with prices falling dramatically. The article goes on to say that are expected to recover rapidly “as a result of low supply and growing demand.”
Together, these reports suggest that now is the time to renovate and sell. Why renovate and sell rather than just sell? There are several good reasons:
- Even tidying up a home can add value to a home. Cosmetic improvements such as freshly painted walls and a well manicured garden make potential buyers feel like they are moving into a well cared for home.
- Inexpensive street view renovations such as a new timber entry door, a nice garden gate and perhaps a resurfaced driveway make one house stand out from the rest.
- In-demand renovations like timber bi-folding doors that open wide out to a patio give a home a chic, trendy appearance that can “seal the deal” for potential buyers.
Renovate Right to Maximise the Value of Your Home
There are two ways to renovate to sell: the right way and the wrong way. Unfortunately, too many homeowners renovate the wrong way and expensive renovations end up costing them more money than they’re worth or even make selling the home more difficult.
The classic mistake most first time renovator’s make is that they make the renovations they would like to see rather than explore the market and discover what the majority of buyers in their area are looking for. Professional home stylists are interior decorators and designers who specialise in analysing the market and renovating and decorating homes to suit the largest share of the market. Statistics have shown that homes that have undergone professional styling sell faster and make higher profits than homes that are sold “as is” or renovated the wrong way.
Allkind Joinery Brisbane already knows what Brisbane homeowners are looking for in a renovation. Since 1970, this company has been selling timber windows and doors and other joinery products to Brisbane homeowners. A prestige joinery, Allkind has a reputation for quality and style, but many homeowners have shied away from calling on them for help with their renovations because they think a prestige joinery must also be an expensive joinery.
The new Renovators Range of quality solid timber doors from Allkind Joinery Brisbane should put to rest the idea that getting the best has to be prohibitively expensive. This range of pre-fabricated doors has been selected from Allkind’s best selling styles of doors. No compromises have been made on their quality, but because they are made in limited quantities, Allkind can sell them for less.
Allkind Joinery calls their new range of timber doors the “Renovator’s Range” because they are ideal for renovators who want to maximise the value of their homes. As the doors that are in highest demand, they are also the doors the home buying market is looking for.
Contact Allkind Joinery today and ask to see the Renovator’s Range of quality timber doors. Then imagine what a difference it will make when a potential buyer sees one of these entry doors as they approach your home or timber sliding doors or timber bi-folding doors leading out to your patio or deck.
