Turn your house into a home!

By Megan Fleming - 20 August 2021

Are you considering renovating your property? Well, then this is your sign to do it!

There are many great benefits of renovating whether you’re letting your property, looking to sell a property, or just want to turn your property into a home! If a property renovation is completed to a good standard, it can significantly increase the property value as it becomes more appealing to prospective buyers or tenants and can in turn enhance the returns on your property.

If you aren't quite ready to move, but are feeling a bit fed up or you fancy a change- renovating is a great option. It is also extremely affordable and can be done on various budgets from property extensions to cost-effective decorating, which has now become very popular especially with many companies now offering the option of finance and paying in instalments. 

Here at Beresfords, over the years we seen many amazing home transformations from our landlords, property developers and customers who have just purchased their new home! An amazing example of this was a property in Colchester that was previously purchased by a customer from Beresfords in December 2020 for £140,000. In less than a year, it has been totally transformed – with both its interior and exterior now almost unrecognisable. 

As a result of the extensive refurbishment, the property has now been modernised throughout with a new quality bathroom, kitchen, roof, windows and much more! In addition to this, the whole renovation was completed in a total of just 6 months with the property owner re-marketing the property with Beresfords in June 2021 at £250,000 - despite only spending between £40,000 and £50,000 on the renovation! Our Colchester branch were able to achieve an offer above asking price for the customer, making their renovation a great success but also providing the new buyer with a great newly modernised home.
