Home Improvement and Financing go hand in hand in updating your home for the next decade

The 2020's are an exciting treasure trove of new and innovative home styles and designs, with your focus on preparing for the best improvements that fit your home, lifestyle and budget.

Improve the value of your biggest asset by reinvesting in your home and that means choosing remodeling options that add value, the obvious spaces being the kitchen and bathroom.

Look for innovative ways of creating more space within your home to fit changing needs and get extra square footage to help improve the value of your home.
 
Do it right, all works MUST meet YOUR local building code and be eligible for complete local authority certification as well as come with a guarantee from any professionals working in your home. Remember vital but unseen improvements like pipes and drainage and updated electrics properly certified will add value to your home.

This website has numerous information articles and tips on different aspects of home improvement and financing to help you make the right choice to suit your home, your family and your budget. At the end of each article you will find links to more articles on the same home improvement topic.

Attic renovation or a side addition at your home could be the answer for you, as a direct result of rising property prices, high relocations costs and our desire to stay within our own community and church, and stay near to family and friends are just some of the reasons why we are deciding to work more with what we already have by enhancing our home.

When it comes to home improvement remodeling, all generations should choose a careful balance between home improvement "investments" and home improvement "luxuries" to make their home more comfortable, more functional, more convenient and simply more aesthetically pleasing.


Materials costs are cheaper and there is also a wider selection, more readily available to us than ever before.

Your project will depend on certain factors like location, climate, indoor space and size of outdoor space - if it has a garden or yard, the age of the building, the style of the building, how many floors, if it has an attic, do you plan on extending, maintaining and/or repairing. Your project is very personal to you, your circumstances, your needs and your home.

Take a look at our "How to" articles which are full of information, pictures and drawings designed to help you with your home improvement and financing projects but before you get out your tools, mix the cement, begin construction or start any Home Improvement Remodeling, even before planning your projects action list, please give special consideration to the following:


Remodel to Add Value

- Will your project be the best choice reinvestment for your home?. Consider the present value of your home and add a high estimation cost for your project. Then compare the total to other homes with similar specifications that are for sale in your area, how would your home then fair if you decided to put it on the market?.

Remodeling for a more ECO friendly and energy efficient home is also top of the list of home improvement renovations, you should aim for the multi benefit effect of adding value, decreasing your utility bills and improving the quality of home life by making your home a more comfortable space to live in. Read our section on Home Energy to find out more.


Remodeling for Quality of Life

- Will your project increase your comfort and lifestyle? consider how it will benefit you and your family's daily life. If it is to add a home office for example, then it is a fairly safe bet that if you were to sell your home at a later stage.

Find out from local real estate agents what are the new demands from people looking for homes, for example a pantry is still HOT on the list of requirements, combined with a with spacious eat in kitchen and a kitchen island, also with the growing trend to work from home a designated computer area or home office is now a definite beneficial selling point for many prospective buyers.


Getting Your Plan Approved

- Have a look around your neighborhood to see what's already been done to houses similar to yours. As long as your neighbors DID get planning permission - this may give you more ideas for your own project and tell you what work is most likely to be more easily approved.

Approval, don't ignore the paperwork. When you spend time and money on your home you want that investment to be reflected in an increased property value, this can only be achieved with planning permission and the resulting corresponding certificates which will be required if you later sell your home.


Getting Your Finances in Place

- Home Improvement and Financing outlines different financing options for your home improvement project. The financing that best suits you will of course depend on your circumstances. The articles on this site are designed to help you consider all the financing options that are available in preparation for discussing your situation with your own financial advisor.
