Is 4 Bedroom The Answer To My Dream Home?

If you are a homeowner in Australia, you would have heard this advice.

Buy or build a 4-bedroom house, it will sell at a higher price.

I say that is not always true, especially in this current market.

Before the current economy of high inflation, material supply disruption and construction cost increase, a 4-bedroom house is the poster child home in Australia.

In this current economic climate, a home that meets the homeowners’ current and future life phases is what every homeowner needs to consider. A long-lasting, comfortable home that you don’t have to move out of so you save tens of thousands of dollars over your lifetime.

Stop listening to what the market is telling you to build or renovate!

Listen to your needs and your family’s needs. Build and renovate your home to suit you and your family’s unique needs, budget and lifestyles.

Would you spend your hard-earned savings to build a home for future homebuyers who might buy your home, if and when you sell it in the future?

Savvy homeowners know that the home they enjoy living in, are proud of and can’t live without will have resale value that will pay back if and when they sell it in the future.

If you love your home, why wouldn’t future homebuyers know its value?

Here are steps to take before you build or renovate your home:

  1. Establish your WHY; the goals and reasons you want to build or renovate your home.
  2. Set a budget that is realistic for you; quantity (the size of the house) versus quality.
  3. Set a brief for your home project; must-have and wish-list room by room size, feel and features.

We love to help you design and build a home that adapts to different phases of your life!

Here is our GIFT of bonus templates to create goals, budget and brief to plan for your future home project.
