How Much Does Renovating Really Increase Resale?

The Benefits of Purchasing Home Add-Ons

Why should I Renovate before Selling a House?

Why should I Renovate before Selling a House?

In today’s sellers’ market, it is important to gain the competitive edge. Properties that would usually be listed for months are being sold pre-listed, auctions are getting record participants and open houses are being swamped by attendees. So how do you make sure your property has the advantage over your neighbours, to get the right dollar price for minimum investment?

When it comes to leaving a lasting impression, remember the saying that ‘first impressions last’. Your house's façade will be the first things buyers base their opinions on as they see your property for the first time.

The Benefits of Purchasing Home Add-Ons

If you feel you have ‘outgrown’ your current home, you may be longing for more living space. Maybe the kids are older and need more space, or you’re just craving a sanctuary of your own.

Rather than sell your current property and buy a new, larger house, it can be far more cost effective to renovate your existing home, which will also increase the value when it is time to sell. An add-on like a pergola or a wooden deck will increase the square meterage of your property and provide new living spaces and they come with the bonus of being tailor made to suit your tastes: No compromise on design means complete satisfaction.


What is overcapitalisation? Overcapitalisation is where renovations or additions are made to a property that cost more than the value that is added. This is a risk for any property investor.

You can avoid overcapitalising by making small effortless changes to your property, which will increase the resale value for potential buyers. Don’t fall into the trap of spending so much that you don’t recover the cost when you decide to sell.

Hunter Patios & Additions’ low-cost business model means you pay less, while creating the perfect outdoor space. You can even benefit from the added value on your property now, and benefit with a finance package that has no interest (terms and conditions apply).

Hunter Patios & Additions can design custom build high quality additions to your property which come with a safety and quality assurance, keeping in mind your cost and time efficiency needs. There are a few renovations which can increase the value of your house for resale: Carports, decks, outdoor blinds and pergolas.


When searching for properties, some people exclude listings without undercover car space. This will expand your reach to new buyers by offering garaging space for a car, boat and caravan storage. We can design the carport to blend seamlessly with your home’s style and design.


Take advantage of the view your property has or benefit from a sloping yard and extend the entertaining area. Hunter Patios & Additions are the best deck builder in Newcastle, NSW, and can provide a well-engineered design that matches your home.

Outdoor Blinds

Tidy the appearance of the outside of the house and provide privacy and reduce the heat and wind. We have a 15-year material guarantee for your peace of mind.


These provide the perfect space for an outside barbeque area, created a relaxing retreat to entice your buyers to pay top dollar for your property. Created by a fully licensed pergola builder, your new pergola will be carefully engineered and tailored to meet your requests and the city’s regulations.

Improving Your Outdoor Living Space

Improving Your Outdoor Living Space

It may seem like you are restricted by your building to how much living space the property offers. While this is somewhat true, there are ways to expand on this, and the value of the house will follow.

By creating an entirely new living space with a glass enclosure, for example, you can invent a usable space that is perfect for outdoor living and entertaining. Imagine being able to advertise your property with a comfortable swimming pool available to use in the middle of winter!

Essentially, one of the best ways to increase the value of your property for resale is by improving the outdoor living space. With a small investment, you increase the value of your home when it comes time to sell.

Should I Build A Deck?

Should I Build A Deck?

A wooden deck can provide a new outdoor living space, be the perfect set up for an outdoor eating area with a barbeque and lounges and capitalise on your properties vantage points if you have a view. A beautiful wooden deck is a functional addition with of visual appeal, and when it is custom designed by the best deck builder in Newcastle, it is almost guaranteed to increase the value of your home.

A wooden deck does more than this, though: It shows prospective buyers a potential lifestyle that they can have if they buy your home, and all the work is already done. A deck dresses your property very well.
