I often hear “we don’t want to over-capitalise” or “we might be selling”.
So, is Rendering you home really worth the investment?
This is what TV’s Renovation expert Cherie Barber has to say on her #2 Strategy for adding value to a home.
STRATEGY 2: Cement render your property
One of the easiest and fastest ways to boost your equity in a property is through the application of cement render (a mix of sand and cement applied to the external brick façade and walls of a property). Property owners dealing with older style red or blond brick houses can instantly modernise their property within days through cement render alone. With average render costs between $35 to $50m2 for a single level home, the investment in this simple cosmetic change can net you phenomenal returns in the league of up to a $10 return for every $1 invested. Cement render is also ideal for timber or plastic clad homes where the cladding is removed, blue board is installed and render applied straight over the top. This enables a property owner to have a property perceived to be of a brick-like, more solid construction than traditional cladding and therefore perceived to be of a substantially higher property value.
