Building for the future: strategies for optimising comfort, style, & resale value of your dream home in Bundaberg
Are you ready to build a home that not only looks good but also is designed with comfort, style and resale value in mind? Building your future home can feel like an overwhelming task - there are so many decisions to make! You want to create something special for you and your family to love for years to come but you don't want to spend unnecessary money now or lose out on value later.
Well, there are some fantastic ways to build a home that strikes the perfect balance between livability and lasting resale value. From choosing quality materials to being ‘smart’ with your home features, these strategies can help set your home up to win on all counts.
Invest in energy efficiency: quality insulation, solar panels & water-saving appliances
Investing in creating an energy-efficient home is one of the smartest decisions a homebuilder can make. Not only will it help you save money on your monthly utility bills, but it can also increase the resale value of your property.
Quality insulation is a great way to make your dollar stretch. By insulating your home well, you need less cooling in summer and less heating in winter and this saves you money. You also create a more pleasant atmosphere for yourself inside your home with less dramatic changes in temperature.
Solar panels are another option many buyers look for in a new home. Also, consider adding a quality battery bank and solar hot water system as part of your build. These energy-saving ideas not only will save you money each month, but they also provide ongoing electricity whether you’re on the grid or off and are great for resale value.
Great star ratings
Installing appliances that have great star ratings for both water and electricity is another worthwhile investment. You’ll need less of your solar energy to run them while also being smart with the water you’re using. Appliances are something you need to purchase anyway, so why not buy ones that may help you in the future?
All three of these changes will not only help you in the short term but contribute to a positive resale value. They are all win-win.
Increase resale value & make life easier with smart features
Looking to make your home both comfortable and modern? Consider adding some smart features! Smart lighting and automated thermostats are two great options. With smart lighting, you can control your lights from your phone, set schedules and even adjust the brightness and colour.
An automated thermostat allows you to control your home's temperature remotely, making it more energy-efficient and saving you money on your utility bills. Plus, buyers are increasingly interested in properties with smart home features, so investing in them now could pay off in the long run.
Strategically choose materials that are durable, stylish, & require minimal maintenance
When it comes to building your new home, choosing the right materials is both an art and a science and something to chat with your home builder about. You want your space to have a stylish and modern look, but you also need it to last for years without requiring extensive upkeep.
It can be tempting to opt for trendy or inexpensive options, but it's essential to think about the long term. Talk to your builder about the specific options available to you. Have a search for house plans Bundaberg and explore options and put your questions together for your builder.
Our team likes to be strategic with walls, roofing, flooring and finishing features that are easy to keep up and add to resale value. If you get this right you will enjoy your home more and in the long-term benefit from better resale value. It’s a win-win both ways.
When you build a home strategically by assessing the energy needs and reducing them with insulation, a great home solar system and water-saving appliances will not only provide comfort in the short term but will lift the future value of your home. Add to that cool smart features that are easy to use and maintain, and long-lasting materials that your house is built with and you’ve got a winner. This type of house is something many are looking for now and will certainly be in demand in the future.
