Plan 4 Property Refurbishment
Property refurbishment guide


Refurbishing a property can make real economic sense
Provided a refurbishment project is well planned and controlled on site with tight adherence to budgeting, then refurbishing a property can pay dividends.

Improve the Worth of Your Property With Refurbishments

For anyone getting ready to sell a London property refurbishments to that property prior to listing it as for sale could make a dramatic difference in the perceived worth. This difference in perception can do two things for you. First, it can help you sell faster and second, it can help you get closer to your asking price.

What sorts of refurbishments can yield the maximum return on investment?

Perception is a funny thing. It's very subjective. By looking at the strengths and the weaknesses of the property you are listing, you can decide what may make the most sense. By assessing the property the way a buyer would, you can determine what curb appeal the place has for accentuating as well as what could be improved to improve that perception. Let's look at a few areas to consider:

Outdoor Curb Appeal

Step back and look at the location from the curb. What's impressive? What could use some freshening up? Is there anything really unattractive that could mean that a refurbishment is in order? London property refurbishments companies can come in and give you a quotation as well as do consultations to help you make a determination on what might be in order.

Competitive Analysis

Consider looking at the properties that are for sale now in that neighbourhood so you can see how your property measures up. Think about the demographic your property would appeal most to and look at other locations that fall under the same category. If you own a family home, for instance, finding out what other family homes in the area have as selling features could help you compete. This can help you decide to build a second or third bathroom, to add closet organisers, to upgrade the kitchen, or refinish the floors. It's quite possible that a £10k refurbishment could net much more than that in terms of the purchase offers that come in, for instance.

Interior Design

Beyond the way the property looks from the curb and beyond comparing it to other places in the area, there are design elements that can help you appeal to others. A clean and uncluttered property, a fresh coat of paint, and a few tricks of the trade that increase curb appeal can help you. Whether you need minor or major refurbishments, a qualified London property refurbishments company can present choices and options to help you sell your home faster and at a bigger profit.


Why not consider a home extension?
Many property refurbishment schemes also include extending the dwelling house for that large family kitchen or extra bedroom for example. Here are a couple of excellent house extension guide web sites that are worthy of a look:-

Many house extensions are great for adding value to a property but as they can be very expensive to construct they often become over budget. However, that's only if you have a developer head.

Most home extenders are actually 'nester' with at least a 5 year plan for the property in which they are extending for their home rather than as a house so 'instant money back' is not a real issue for them.

All home extensions will require good design and planning. To do this correctly a home owner needs to understand the relevant design stages for a home extension.

Blindly engaging a novice 'plan drawer' based upon price really is not the way forward. All home extensions should be designed by a qualified professional no matter how simple a home owner thinks their extension scheme is.
