Why Renovate

The cycle of life brings changes that impact upon the comfort of our living.  While it often seems there is only one way to solve the problem – to sell – ARC can help you explore all your options before making the final decision. You might be surprised at what you can do.

Increase the Value

Whether you would like to renovate a home you are currently living in or you are interested in upgrading your investment property, ARC will guide you through the process and ensure you get exactly what you need. The key point is to think about what you are aiming to achieve and ARC will deliver the desired outcome.

While renovations may lead to higher profits on sale or rent, it is essential that any improvements are done with broad market in mind. In other words, the upgrades done to your property might not be what you like the best but what “sells” the best – and this is where ARC can offer their expertise.

Eco-friendliness & Efficiency

While a renovated home will never be as energy efficient as a brand New Home, there are many improvements we could assist you with to reduce your home’s ecological footprint and save you money in the long run. 

Costs of Moving

Renovating can be a viable option if you like the home or area you currently live in. Selling up and building or buying a New Home elsewhere can bring up a plethora of legal fees, agent’s commissions, stamp duty, and various other expenses associated with buying and selling. These often add up to thousands of dollars, which could be spent directly on your home improvements.

The Character of Your Home

Many older homes have undeniable character and are just waiting to be polished so their beauty and style can shine through again. Older home renovations can be rewarding but also present a challenge to the renovators. ARC will assist you with bringing in modern conveniences into an older home without disrupting its original style and feel. However, it is important to keep in mind older homes can often present ‘hidden surprises’ during the renovation process (eg. uneven floors, poor structural support), and factoring a little extra in your budget should be able to cope with any unexpected expenses.
