3 Features That Increase The Value Of Your Property

With any purchase, you want to make sure that you get the most bang for your buck. The reason why it’s even more important when buying a house is that property is one of the biggest and arguably most important assets you can own. Not only can a house be a humble abode for you and your family, but it also gives you leverage for applying for another loan, for building home equity or for leasing out and yielding a rental income. Picking the right property, for any (or all) of the reasons mentioned, is important.

What you should know is that there are certain features in a home that make it more valuable. So, whether you’re building brand new, shopping for an existing home or committing to a renovation, you should consider what people (tenants and bank evaluators!) consider desirable and therefore valuable in a home. Here are three features that are worth investing in to increase the value in your property.

Alfresco/Outdoor Entertaining Area

We live in a beautiful country with amazing seasons, so it’s no surprise that the outside of the home is just as valuable for many people as the inside of the home. Having a tiled alfresco, a deck, pergola, BBQ area or anything of the like is seen as the perfect entertaining area. It’s the home’s private oasis and adds luxury compared to homes that go without. The best part is that you don’t have to dig deep into your pocket to set up a lovely outdoor seating area. Speak to New Edge Homes today to find out how you can get an alfresco included in the base price of a new home design.

Modern Kitchen & Quality Appliances

As the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s a space that needs to be both functional and inviting in design. Cramped kitchens with old appliances can turn away a lot of tenants and significantly decrease the value of your home overall. Opting for a stone benchtop and a modern cooktop, oven and dishwasher will give you a more esteemed asset immediately. If it’s not within your budget to remodel your kitchen entirely, you can still make impactful changes by painting cupboards, switching handles and updating smaller appliances such as a microwave.

Updated Flooring

You might not guess it, but flooring is a big influence in giving off good or bad first impressions. Worn out, stained carpet is not what you want people to notice when walking through your door. Hardwood flooring is one of the most expensive options, but you can also make your floors look great with tiles or fresh carpet. If ripping up the floor isn’t in the question, just give it a good clean! Scrubbing dirty grout or steam cleaning carpet can give off the appearance of sparkling new flooring.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

Debbie & Brian - Jordan Springs 

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH. 

D.E, Marsden Park 

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -

Monika & Mayur, Elara
