What kind of renovations do you need?

Home renovations can add a great deal to the value of a property, particularly if the work is done to a very high standard. There are many different things you can do, from large scale projects like extensions and attic conversions to smaller jobs like decorating. If you are looking to boost the selling price you should consider where your money will provide the biggest returns. This can help you to plan the renovation.

Before you start deciding on what projects to do, it is important to think about your target audience. This will give you a better idea of what your property needs to offer to attract attention. You should be looking to satisfy the typical search criteria of prospective buyers, including the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the standard of the kitchen and the amount of space. The knowledge will help you to target your investment in the right areas.

When deciding on renovations you will need to consider how much you will need to invest against the prospective return. Large projects like extensions and conversions may have the potential to provide large returns, but the cost will also be higher. In a number of cases, smaller jobs can offer a bigger return on investment (ROI).

The condition of the structure itself should be checked first. For example, if there are any problems with the roof or foundations, these should be checked first because they will have a huge impact on the value of the building. If a property requires major repairs like these, prospective buyers will try to force the price down so they don't have to pay the full value of the work on top of the asking price. If you have already done the work, you can present a property that is sound and structurally in good condition.
