Renovating in Auckland?
If you're an Auckland home owner there has never been a better time to start your Auckland Renovation than right now. Interest rates are low and land price is high.For most Aucklanders, purchasing a brand new home is simply not an option due to the high prices currently seen in the Auckland property market .
As a result, more and more of us are visiting open homes and attending auctions for houses built anywhere from 1900 to the 1980's. The Auckland house my husband and I moved into three years ago hadn't been touched since 1970! We began our Auckland Renovation 5 years ago now and haven't looked back!
This is the case for a lot of us Aucklander's.But that doesn't bother Kiwi's because we love to put our own stamp on our house anyway. So why pay above market prices for a beautifully renovated house, that somebody else loves? Why not renovate and have your house the way you want it?
Create Renovations, (North Shore builders and specialist Auckland renovations company )are finding more and more customers who loved their area but their house just wasn't working for them. So they went house hunting. But guess what? Unless they wanted to spend upward of a million dollars, they couldn't get the space or level of fixtures and fittings they wanted. So instead they renovated and haven't looked back.
So what return will your Auckland Renovation give you in the market?
I have yet to see a case where our customers have been disappointed with their revalued property. But more importantly most people want to enjoy their home and after extending and renovating they will most likely stay there for 10 plus years. Historically Auckland's property market doubles every 10 or so years. So how can you lose!
For me personally I like to live in a beautiful Auckland renovation , somewhere that expresses my personality and responds to the way me and my family live. Renovating or building new is the only option for me. I can't help but want to start all over again even if the property is beautifully renovated! I'm sure I am not alone in this.
But isn't renovating stressful?
Well maybe it is ..although as a wife of a North Shore builder I can't remember a time when we weren't renovating! However it may be stressful if you don't have the right team looking after you. Don't get me wrong, living in a building site is hard work but it is also exciting. Moving walls, changing kitchens, deciding on tiles, paint colours etc, it starts to become an obsession and its hard to stop.
