Home renovations have become very popular in recent years, as they are an excellent and much cheaper alternative to building a new home. On the other hand, if you live in an old house, it makes sense to think about whether the home renovation is worthwhile financially and what are its benefits that offset its cost.
So let’s see below what exactly a home renovation offers and why so many people invest in it, making a quick amortization on the expense.
Aesthetic and functional upgrade
The aesthetic upgrade that a home renovation offers is unquestionable, although it is unfortunately something that is not valued in money. However, it has been proven that people who live in a bright house of their choice, which reflects their taste and aesthetic needs, are more efficient and happier in their daily lives.
This became especially evident with the lockdowns and the long time we spent in our homes, but also with the telework that has now come, to stay.
In addition, the functional one goes hand in hand with the aesthetic upgrade. In short, a renovated house has the right layout and the appropriate interventions have been made, to give an easier daily life, to be cleaned faster, to have more storage space, etc.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of renovation and its economic benefits is the energy efficiency it offers. By applying insulation, changing windows and choosing the right heating and cooling system, monthly bills can be significantly reduced.
The amortization of the initial cost and how quickly it can be done results directly from the study of the renovation based on the cost of interventions, the characteristics of the house, etc.
Higher house value
If you are thinking of selling or renting your home, then renovating it can also have high financial benefits. Because a renovated house has a much higher initial value than an old, unrenovated one. And this value is reflected in the monthly rent or the selling price.
This greater value arises not only because the house is more modern and functional, although according to real estate experts the first impression on the future buyer / tenant plays a huge role in his final decision. The lower maintenance costs and monthly expenses that a renovated home has are a key criterion for the other party’s intention to pay a higher price with a view to long-term depreciation.
Is it worth a home renovation after all? The answer has to do with the needs and the current state of the house, but also the interventions that will be made. Its advantages, however, are significant and are largely valued in money, giving an idea of the rapid amortization of the initial cost.
