When you buy a new home the decision is usually made taking into consideration your budget and your lifestyle needs. Even if you love the look of your new home, you may want to change something before you move in, so don’t book Brilliance Removalists Melbourne too far ahead of time. In fact, it’s a good idea to go through your new home before you move in, jotting down notes about what you don’t like and can afford to change.
While the house is still empty is the ideal time to have any renovations done because you won’t have to move furniture around. And of course, you won’t be living there so the noise and dust of the renovations won’t drive you mad. So what kind of renovations are likely? Even simple ones can make a difference to the kind of life you will lead in your new home.
For instance, you might want to add a deck out the back, or another room to create a bit more space. Or perhaps you want to enlarge the windows on the sunny side to let in winter warmth. Those bathroom tiles might look old and horrible so giving your bathroom a facelift could be on the agenda. You might just want to paint the whole house to freshen it up and put in new carpets. There are many more upgrades, additions and improvements that could be done.
All of these renovations would be better done before the furniture is put in and you move into the house. Sometimes it takes a bit of organisation to get things done at the right time. You might have just sold your own home, so you are in the middle of packing up to move. That makes it a bit harder to work out when the renovations can or should be done.
You have to sign the contracts and exchange them before the final conveyancing can be completed. Once that is done you may have to vacate your current home before moving into the new one, if you are getting renovations done. Sometimes you can talk to the people who bought your home and ask for a little more time. They may not be in a hurry to move in, but if they, are you will have to move out. Then you’ll need to find other accommodation and store your furniture while you prepare your new home.
This may seem difficult, but it is well worth the effort of doing it before moving day, because it will save you moving in and then having to move out again. Moving itself is a big task and if you get settled in the home it could well be years before you want to move out for renovations – and then it will likely never get done.
