September News for the Home

September News for the HomeYour home is not a one and done purchase. Unfortunately, there’s a lot that changes over time – but much of it is good. Changes in the home renovation and construction industries open up new doors (pun intended) for ways to ensure that you and your loved ones are as comfortable and happy as possible. Think about how far we’ve come in just a few hundred years. If we believe some, in 50 years, we’ll all be living in homes operated by robots! We’re not getting that ahead of ourselves today, but we are enjoying one of our favourite Restumping Melbourne blog traditions – our ongoing supply of monthly home news. Inside your home, outside, adjacent, you name it – we’ve gathered the best of the best to share with you. Read on for more information.

Honestly, we’d pay a significant amount of money to never hear the term “new normal” or the term “unprecedented times” ever again. But, since that’s not going to happen anytime soon, we’ve learned to adjust not only our daily lives, but our business models. And we’re not the only ones. Home renovations don’t stop and dreams don’t disappear just because of everything that’s going on in the world. No, we get creative, or at least the authors of this post certainly did. Check it out to learn unique ways to navigate home renovations in… you guessed it… the new normal. Click here for more information.

Finances are always ongoing conversations that we have with our current and prospective clients. We don’t want you to think that these conversations are in any way uncomfortable – they’re simply a piece of the process. We’ve shared this before frequently on the blog, but they really are one of the biggest deterrents to those who have big visions and are scared to kick off the home renovation process. We see that all of the time with those who are employing us for restumping, reblocking and underpinning – and we never want you to feel that way. That’s why we love articles like this one, helping explain different ways that you can easily finance your home repairs and renovations. Bonus if we can then get you excited about them!

Maybe you’re on the other end of the spectrum; you don’t plan on staying in your current home for long, you’re ready to put it on the market and start your next chapter in life. But is it the right time? As this article shares, “Real estate investors and house flippers often face a big conundrum when selling a home: Sink money into improvements to snag a higher asking price, or list the home in its current condition and hope for the best. In a buyer’s market, the latter approach will often backfire.” It’s a tough decision, but with resources like this article, you may feel better equipped. Check out the article in full, here.
