How to revalue a home: Reforms
As time goes by, the properties are losing value and this is a great inconvenience for the owner who wants to sell his house when it has a certain age, since the possibilities of sale decrease.
Possibly the owner is forced to lower the price of the house, but there is the possibility of making reforms so that the property is revalued. And if these arrangements also improve insulation and energy efficiency, the investment made will be compensated. It is estimated that housing could be revalued between 10 and 20% after the reforms.
But the first thing we must do before making them is to establish a budget with which you can get a profit margin. Depending on what we can or are willing to spend, the reforms will be applied.
In this way, an average renovation is considered to be one in which the bathrooms, the kitchen have been renovated, the walls have been painted and the floor has been fixed.
Next we will see these reforms and some others that we can take into account.
Reform the bathroom
One of the most efficient reforms is to replace the bathtub with a shower, both to modernize the bathroom and for safety reasons. The water facilities must also be renewed and the toilets, floors and walls changed, according to the budget and the need.
Reform the kitchen
If the investment is reduced, it will be sufficient to paint the tiles and furniture. With a bigger budget, you can change the appliances and improve the lighting. Currently there is a tendency to open the kitchens to the living room totally or partially.
Painting walls and fixing floors
Clean and freshly painted walls make a very good impression. You can change the colors according to the trend of the moment or get effects according to the color. For example, use light colors in dark spaces to gain amplitude.
The ground is also fundamental. If it is not possible to recover it or it is damaged, you can place a floating floor or laminate floors that imitate wood, stone or ceramic without lifting the old floor.
With these changes we would have already made an average reform, the result of which may vary according to the budget. But we would have the main areas of housing in good condition. If we have more budget, these are other arrangements and reforms that also revalue the property:
Change doors and windows
You can replace old windows with simple glass windows with better thermal and acoustic insulation (which could reduce the consumption of air conditioning and heating).
The doors of step also attract a lot of attention, but if changing them out of the budget, they can be arranged to give them a renewed look.
Increase storage capacity
This is a very practical reform and one of the best ways to increase storage space is that the rooms have fitted wardrobes.
Close the terrace
Close the terrace and incorporate it into the home, revalue it because it enlarges the useful space. The closed surface is 80% more expensive than the terrace.
Renew the facilities
It is advisable to update the facilities, for example that all rooms have access points to television, telephony and internet services.
The plumbing, water supply and evacuation facilities must be in perfect condition.
Modify the distribution
Currently, the floors most in demand are those of two and three bedrooms and if they also have a complementary toilet, will help to revalue the property.
On the other hand there is a tendency to redistribute the living space of the house leaving the living room and dining room in a single space.
We can find the problem that the house is a floor between a third or a room without an elevator. Its installation is subsidized, although this type of works depends on the community.
In the cases that are possible, the construction of ramps that facilitate the access or to leave ample spaces will be another advantage at the time of increasing the price of the house.
