什麼時候更好不要翻新物業

Posted by Emma McKenzie on Jan 3, 2017 11:42:18 AM

如果您的物業要維修,或者您正在考慮進行裝修以準備出售,那麼您應該首先考慮幾件事情。

雖然經由精心策劃,具有成本效益的裝修可以為房屋增值,但那總有花費過度的風險。這就是為什麼當您想賣物業時,需要考慮應不應該裝修,以及它吸引潛在買家的附加價值。

If your property needs repair or you’re considering a renovation to get it ready for sale, there are a few things you should consider first. Although well-planned, cost-effective renovations can add value to a home, there is always the risk of over-capitalizing. That’s why it pays to consider the types of renovations that add value and appeal to potential buyers. So, when you’re looking to sell, when shouldn’t you renovate?

知道您的尺度
Check your margins

如果您的物業不是絕對需要修繕,或是屋況良好,翻新並不絕對必要。一般的經驗法則是,為了獲得利潤的翻新,以花費不超過房產價值的10%為準則。因此,第一步是對您的物業進行最新的專業估價。接下來,定出預算和緩衝值,以防意外的額外費用。以10%為準,一個價值50萬元房屋的翻新預算5萬元。超過這個預算,您將會有過度投資的風險。

If your property isn’t in desperate need of repair and you’re confident you have a decent amount of existing equity, renovations may not be necessary. A general rule of thumb when it comes to renovating for profit is to spend no more than 10% of the property’s value on the alterations. So, the first step would be have an up-to-date professional valuation of your property. The next, would be to work out a budget and buffer in case of unforeseen additional expenses. Using the 10% rule, this means a home valued at $500,000 would have a total renovation budget of $50,000. Any more than this, and you risk over-capitalizing.

您需要迅速出售嗎?
Do you need a quick sale?

大多數翻修需要時間去計劃和預算及完成。所以,如果您想迅速出售,可能無法完成。請記得,裝修經常超過預算,可能需要比預期更長的時間,所以這將影響到您的決定。
Most renovations take time to plan and budget for, as well as to be completed. So, if you’re looking to sell soon, they may not be possible. Remember too, that renovations often go over budget and can take longer than anticipated so factor this into your decision. 

裝修是為誰?
Who are you renovating for?

裝修廚房或浴室一般會吸引大多數買家,但如果裝修只是為個人的品味,不會吸引大部分的潛在買家。
Some renovations appeal to most buyers, such as a kitchen or bathroom upgrade, but others are personal to your taste and won’t appeal to the largest number of potential buyers. 

 

出售的對象是誰?
Who are you selling to?

您物業的鄰里住是什麼樣的人呢?大多數是單身或夫婦,或是退休人士,家庭?找出該社區可能吸引哪些人將有助於您選擇適當的裝修方式。例如,如果您的本地市場可能吸引家庭人士,在添加時尚但有潛在危險的功能之前請仔細考慮。或者,如果您的潛在買家可能是投資者,請保持最低限度翻新,因為他們一般會有自己的裝修計劃,您的更新可能對他們完全沒有意義。
What is the demographic of your property’s neighbourhood? Mostly singles and couples? Mostly retirees or families? Finding out who the neighbourhood is likely to attract will help you determine suitable renovations. For instance, if your local market is likely to attract families, think carefully before adding stylish but potentially hazardous features. Or if your potential buyer is most likely an investor, keep renovations to a minimum as they will almost certainly have their own plans and your changes may add no value to them at all.

不確定時請找救兵
Ask if you’re unsure

向您的房產經紀人詢問他們對房產及其可能吸引買家類型的看法,請教他們對類似房屋的銷售情況以及他們推薦的翻新。不必驚訝如果您的房地產經紀人告知您的並家不需要大規模裝修,因此您可以節省下許多麻煩,時間和金錢。
Ask your Realtor their opinion on the property and the type of buyer it is likely to attract, what similar homes in similar condition are selling for and any renovations they would recommend. You may be surprised,if your home isn’t in need of massive renovations your Realtor will tell you and you may save yourself a lot of hassle,time and money.

Tips2.jpg Have a dedicated office space

Office-Home.jpgIt is very important to designate one room (or even a large closet) as your office. This space should have enough room for your desk and a cabinet, it should be quiet, comfortable, and if possible separate from the rest of the house. If you live in a small place try to dedicate a quiet area where you can have your desk. Whatever your office looks like, make sure the only thing that happens in that space is work.

♦ Treat your work day as a work day

The first few hours of the work day can have a significant effect on your level of productivity. This means getting up early, showered, and dressed like you’re going to the office. It doesn’t have to be a suit and tie or a pencil skirt – that’s one of the benefits of working from home, after all – but getting cleaned up and dressed makes it easier to stay “work-minded” all day.

Take Breaks

It helps you to be efficient and productive as well as keeping your day structure. A great Mac app called Breaktime can help you schedule your breaks.

Make your home office efficient but also pleasing

Tidy-Office.jpgYou’re going to spend a lot of time in your office, make it an enjoyable place to be. When it comes to paperwork, you want to keep your business and personal things separate. It is easy to keep your personal documents such as, birth certificates, mortgages records, bank statements, etc, in the same room as their business files. Be careful not to get the two mixed up or misplace client information. Maintain your desk free of clutter.

 Adopt a system you trust

It’s easy to get distracted at home. One way to help you understand your productivity level is to start tracking the time you spend at the task at hand. Create a work-sheet where you can enter the task, task description and time spent on that specific item. Creating a system will make your work-day more efficient and productive.
