HOME RENOVATIONS AND BUILDERS

HOME RENOVATIONS AND BUILDERS
Renovating one’s own home gives the feeling of accomplishment and pride once the design is finished. But going through the details can be a bit daunting for most–renovation builders fulfil their tasks in maximizing their strengths and services for clients. The Boom of Home Improvement  Home renovation falls under the bigger hat of home improvement. The industry has become the fastest growing retail sector in New Zealand with an increase of 60 percent from 2012–with an estimate of 30 percent of homes being renovated. The Certified Builders Association has seen a trend in expanding existing land and home space as opposed to purchasing new property. The reason being that there is apprehension of being able to move back in a residence. Extensive renovations are often made in bedrooms and bathrooms–sometimes with the addition of a garage. The demand of an upkeep of present houses comes in the midst of an increase in house prices in Auckland and surrounding areas. Renovations or Remodelling?  Renovation and remodelling house procedures are both aesthetic changes to a home or structure. The difference between them is the extent to which the transformation takes place. Renovation focuses on the re-creation of a dilapidated space and often times, the pre-existing condition of the establishment is enough to be retained. Remodelling is not simply changing the surroundings or the decor but creating even the foundation of a home if necessary. This would include changing even the basic features of a room to make way for other additional components that would enhance it. Remodelling in a home is better for its functionality; from a designer and decorator’s perspective,...

Home Renovations With Highest Return At Resale

Home Renovations With Highest Return At Resale
With the increasing property values, many Kiwis prefer to put their money into improving their existing homes rather than buying a new property and relocating, which is costly in itself. As well as enhancing the aesthetics of a house and adapting its use to changing lifestyles, renovations add value when it’s time to sell. While all renovations boost a property’s value, some give higher returns than others do. So which projects exactly add the most value? Kitchens The biggest value-add in will come from the kitchen, which could rake in about $50,000-$60,000 in return. Understandably, kitchens have become the social spot of many homes in New Zealand. It’s become more than just a place for cooking and eating, but a focal point for gathering and family bonding. However, looking at the 2018 figures from Refresh Renovations, homeowners actually prioritise bathrooms (19.2 per cent) more than kitchens (14.9 per cent). This may be due to the fact that kitchens are expensive to renovate. In fact, a basic kitchen remodelling project can set you back by $10,000 to $30,000. If you don’t plan it thoroughly beforehand, the figure climbs rather easily and can get out of hand. Too often, the biggest cost there is manpower. If you think about DIY-ing to cut your expenses, think carefully. Going the DIY route may extend the duration of the job, and you may even pay more in buying or renting equipment for certain parts of the project. A lot of people don’t realise that time they spend on DIY renovations is time they could be spending in other money-generating pursuits. If you want to...

Renovations In Auckland Are Becoming More Affordable…
The news is out: New Zealand’s economy is taking a downturn as the global economic outlook continues to weaken. According to the official statement of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand released in late March 2019 (RBNZ): “The Official Cash Rate (OCR) remains at 1.75 percent. Given the weaker global economic outlook and reduced momentum in domestic spending, the more likely direction of our next OCR move is down.” The housing market has already reached a plateau and interest rates are staying low. That being said, now’s the best time to get going with the renovation plans you’ve been putting off for years. Home remodelling is becoming more affordable, so if you have the money, take advantage of this downturn to pick up remodelling projects you’ve always wanted to make. Yes, not too many homeowners would think about renovating during a recession. And that’s what makes renovating during an economic downturn cheaper. Top-notch talent like builders, plumbers and electricians will be more available. And guess what? They will be offering their services at lower rates. Not to mention, building materials like bricks, concrete and rebar will be cheaper than what they normally cost. When the economy bounces back, prices are going to skyrocket. Of course, if you are renovating in order to make more money in the end, you need to be wise about picking the projects to spend money on. Just last year, Stuff NZ shared a list of home improvement projects that make a good investment: Bathrooms – Big or small, bathroom improvements definitely has some of the highest return on investment. This is the area most...
