A lot of people will be planning on eating healthier and starting a new fitness regime this month but there will also be a lot of people looking at changing their property situation.
The problem with a lot of goals is that it’s hard to make those first few steps and kick them into action, so we have a bit of advice to get some common property goals off the ground.
Property goal #1: find a new home
Outgrowing your current home or just looking for a change? With interest rates at record lows, it’s a great time to buy and there are plenty of fantastic property opportunities in Mudgee to suit a variety of buyers and budgets.
If you had no luck finding a property in 2016, your problem could be that you’re looking at properties that are out of your price range. Try to expand your search this year and look at properties in new suburbs or properties that might not have all the features you originally wanted. The home you buy now doesn’t need to be the home you have forever, you can always renovate or move when you have saved more later on.
For those who live in Sydney and are getting frustrated by escalating property prices, now could be the time to look at your lifestyle and ask if a tree-change to Mudgee is the right move for you.
Property goal #2: renovate
If you’re not thinking about moving you might be looking at improving the home you’ve already got. Renovations are a personal decision based on what you want to get out of your home, but if you’re looking to sell soon then it’s worth considering the renovations that will add the most value.
In general, the renovations that help add value include new kitchens and bathrooms, extensions and painting. Every property is unique though and different renovations will be needed to help it reach its full potential.
To help you get your renovations off the ground, talk to local builders, draftsmen, agents or an architect to help you decide what is right for your home.
Property goal #3: sell up and move on
Looking to move on to a new place or lifestyle? Making the decision to sell is never easy and there is always a lot to think about – such as where you will move to next and what you need to do to get the property ready for sale.
To help you make an informed decision about selling it’s worth having a chat to a Professionals Mudgee Real Estate Agent to find out what your home is worth and what you can do to help maximise its sale price. A chat with an agent might also help you understand what it happening in the local market and what else is available to buy when you do decide to move on.
Best of luck in all of your property goals for 2017, and remember if you need any help, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the team at Professional Mudgee Real Estate.
