There are many reasons why you should renovate/get your home renovated, not only for personal appeal but also for future market value.

As is the case for any other things with a large amount of value, upgrading it or remodeling it so it becomes more modern has inherent value for when you are using it.

Doing this will increase the future value as future homeowners will not need to change as much when they move in and it also makes the home look potentially much better, especially if you are planning to stay in your home for years to come.

Eco-Friendly options

Another reason to renovate your home is to make it more eco-friendly, even using low-cost approaches to decreasing your eco-footprint, such as installing low-flow taps and showerheads so less water is used, which will reduce your water bill in the long run.

You can even talk to your local council to ask for a grant or subsidy to make eco-friendly modifications to your home.

Although buying more electricity efficient appliances can be more costly initially, it will reduce your electricity over time and could end up saving you money or at least compensating you for the initial cost in the long run.

A place where there are always a lot of appliances plugged in is the kitchen

A place where there are always a lot of appliances plugged in is the kitchen, updating the electrical circuits in the kitchen is essential and will be a part of the kitchen renovations that we at Abs Home Renovations will take care of.

There are many reasons to renovate

There are many reasons to renovate, but the key points are determining what you want out of the renovation and your plan for construction.

A good renovation can help make your home feel lively again, maybe there is added space, another room, or just a feature to make your home feel more comfortable.

Whatever it is, a renovation can be greatly worth it if planned properly so there is far less stress involved.

If you are contemplating between renovating your home or moving to a different area

If you are contemplating between renovating your home or moving to a different area, but you like your current area and home, you should renovate or get someone to renovate your home.

Buying and selling a home can be costly between the agent’s commission, stamp duty, or legal fees along with a raft of other expenses that can result in thousands of dollars lost.

Thousands of dollars could contribute to upgrading your current home

Those thousands of dollars could contribute to upgrading your current home which has the benefit of a change of style, more comfort, more convenience, and added market value for when you do want to sell your house and move on, or if you just want to increase the amount people will have to pay for rent.

Renovating a home is much cheaper than buying an entirely new home

Renovating a home is much cheaper than buying an entirely new home, and you don’t have to have the stress of moving all of your belongings or the cost of getting other people to do it for you.

A great way to upgrade your home is to add a house extension. Here at Abs Home Renovations, we can build it for you at an affordable cost.

However, there are a few things you must consider before renovating your home.


Price; The price of renovation can be the number one factor in deciding if or how you are going to renovate your home, as if your budget is lower, you will have fewer options for renovation and therefore not increase the market value of the house as much.

If you hire us, we ensure that we will be as cost-effective as possible while keeping the high quality that we are known for.


Plan; You must create a valid plan in what you are going to do to your home which takes into account the price, time, practicality, and aesthetic. If you don’t plan while taking all of these things into account.

You can run into issues in the future such as running out of time or money halfway through renovation, or it could be an inconvenient or just plain ugly change to your house that could decrease the value of your home.


Permits; Depending on the size or scale of your renovation, you will need to get a permit before doing so.

If you hire a company like us to renovate for you, we will get the permits for you if needed, but if you do it yourself, you will need to get the permit yourself too.


Future; You need to make sure that these renovations don’t impede future market value or potentially make it much more difficult to renovate down the line as that could be a deal-breaker for many people looking to buy a home.

Renovating can often be extremely confusing for people

Renovating can often be extremely confusing for people, and understandably so.

It involves planning a layout or design for the renovation, organising the costs, and actually building the feature itself, not to mention figuring out if you need a permit and if so, getting the permit itself.

Some reasons you should renovate your home are:


You need more space; Having more space in your home opens up for far more customisation of your home so that you can make it suit your needs whatever they are.

It also allows for people to move around more easily when you have friends or family over, making the general experience and environment better.

A great way to get more space is to build a house extension, which we can do for you.


Improving the quality of life; Having a home that looks better, feels more comfortable, or just having more space can greatly improve the mood on those relaxing nights spent with the family in the living room as no one has to be cramped in a small room, especially if you have a large family or a few friends over.

A great way to make sure that your property looks amazing is to have some landscaping done to your yard, it frees up a lot of space for people to be around.


Wanting to go green; The environment is extremely important, and every step towards helping it goes a long way.

If you wish to become more eco-friendly, you could replace showerheads or taps so that they release less water when in use, which has the added bonus of reducing your water bill, which makes it a great long-term investment. We can install showerheads or taps for you so you don’t have to worry about the hassle along with even renovating your entire bathroom for you, which also includes the plumbing involved.


Wanting to restore your home’s character; You may have been in the same house for years now, or maybe the house that you just moved into is old. With house renovations, you can spruce up the aesthetic and feel of the house.

With our house renovations, this can involve changing the sizing or the shape of rooms, to even adding more rooms on the roof or in the back of the house which will also add value to your home.


Reducing repair costs; If you are living in an older home, chances are that many things are starting to break down like window frames, cupboards, and drawers. This is exactly why you should be renovating your home, the easiest way is to contact us to do your house renovations.

These repairs start to take a toll on your bank with the constant repairs that you are having to do. Renovating, although initially far more expensive, will fix those issues by completely replacing many of the old, broken down parts of your home.

This reduces the amount of time and money that you have to spend on repairs. This is why we recommend hiring us to do your house renovations with Abs Home Renovations.


Raising your home’s value; If you are renovating your home, it is highly likely that it will increase the market value of your home if you were to sell or rent it out.

In most situations, this ends up with you gaining more money than you spent initially on the renovations, making it worthwhile.


You don’t want to move; You may like your house, due to the fond memories that you have had there over the years, and you may like the area either due to its location or if it is a safe area.

Either way, renovation is the solution for you, in this case, it livens up your home so that you don’t get the stale old feeling of being in the same home for years, with the added benefit of being able to stay in the same area.


Safety Issues; Old homes can come with some safety issues, whether it be from asbestos, faulty electrical circuitry, or just everything falling apart. This can be a danger to you and your family and has the potential to cause serious injury if left untended.

A good renovation will solve these issues, as you can replace the old circuitry with safe, modern ones and you can get the asbestos removed by a professional safely. This will ensure that your family is safe from most dangers inside your home.


Changing style; If you want to change the style of your home so it feels more fresh and modern, renovation is the best thing to do.

Not only does it increase the market value of your home, but it also makes it feel like new and will feel nice and clean with an updated style.

Our Recommendation

Overall, we highly recommend renovating your home given that you plan it properly so less goes wrong in the process, or just hire a professional for a stress-free, but more costly approach due to the increased market value, improved functionality, potential to make it better for the environment, and a change in style or aesthetic.
