Increase the Value of Your Home with Upgraded Pre-Start Choices
Wednesday,26 July 2017

Making the right choices at pre-start can add thousands to the value of your home. Whether you intend to live in your new home long-term, rent it out or sell, everyone wants to maximise their budget for the best return.

Upgrades you can Choose

The choice is yours! You can choose to keep your standard quality inclusions or upgrade to your dream fittings at pre-start stage. Big and small changes at pre-start can make a big difference to valuations and appeal.

Flooring Finesse

Choosing your flooring is always a big decision. It’s a high ticket item and can set the overall tone of your home. Upgrade from vinyl flooring to polished concrete, quality tiles or wooden flooring with Start Right Homes and you may achieve the greatest increase in value. When making your choice, speak to our pre-start consultant Mikaela for expert advice on the best flooring options to fit within your budget.

Appeal to the Most Number of People

When building your home, street appeal is a significant factor in perceived value and quality. If you decide to rent or sell your home down the track, potential buyers may decide whether to view your home based on the appeal of its façade so make sure you spend the time with your Home and Land Specialist to get it right. You can achieve this by including a feature brick or stonework in your elevation. Start Right homes has some outstanding external products available so make sure you have a chat about what you can achieve with your elevation.

If you think you will be looking for a buyer or tenant down the track, choose a colour palette that will appeal to the majority of the population. You might love to get creative and include bright colours throughout, but neutral and light colours are your safest bet. Remember, you can get creative by adding splashes of colour in artwork and furniture, whilst keeping the permanent items neutral to increase your buyer pool.

Beautiful Bench Tops

The rule of real estate is that kitchens sell houses. It’s no surprise, considering we spend much of our time at home gathered around the kitchen and living areas, so make sure your kitchen is as inviting as possible. At Start Right Homes, all homes come with 20mm Caesarstone kitchen bench tops as standard, with a choice of 11 stunning colours to choose from in our standard range, with plenty of upgrade options available too! Long-lasting quality Caesarstone kitchen bench tops can attract buyers and add thousands to the value of your home without costing you any more.

Little Upgrades for Big Impact

Overall quality is all in the details and small upgraded fixtures throughout your home can deliver the high end look you’re after. From downlights to well-placed feature pendants, lighting can drastically change the overall mood of a home. All Start Right Homes’ clients are offered an expert lighting package with their new home; we connect you with a professional lighting designer who will work through your plan and recommend the best lighting options for the look and feel you’re trying to achieve. You can also choose to glam up your home with small touches by upgrading your light switches from the standard white to matte black, illuminated touch pads or a brushed metal plate.
