How to add value to your property
The most important thing when considering whether to knock down and build or undertake a home extension is to know the current value of your property and not over capitalise. However this can be offset if you are planning to live in your current house for the next 10 years and potentially beyond. By investing in your own home the long term profit that you will make is also a tax free profit.
When planning a home extension it is important to consider yours and your families needs. It is also important to consider what the market expects in your suburb. Generally the minimum requirement for a family of four is a 3x2 with multiple living zones and if you have the space it is always ideal to make this a 4x2. This can be done in two ways, if you have available land a ground floor home extension can be achieved. Another popular way is to add a second storey addition. By adding a second storey addition your home is instantly transformed and the benefit is not only the extra space you will gain, it is the improvement in the kerb appeal for the property that will draw in buyers when it comes time to sell.
Other key factors to consider are : Open plan living, modern kitchen, modern bathrooms, neutral colour scheme, create a clear entrance to the home, have good kerb appeal.
