I am just confused on whether to spend any $$$ on renovating my current property which i live in at the moment……
Jobs i am thinking (OR dreaming off for last 8 years) to renovate is a) Bathroom renovation (Both en-suite & main), front yard with retaining wall & new lawn, pergola in backyard, replace 80's carpet to nice floor boards or floating floors & lastly kitchen…these are the jobs i wanted to get done for very long time since 2012.
But after getting few quotes for first two jobs i am now starting to think whether it's worth spending the $$$ on a 1980 built house. The first two jobs once finished should normally last for next 20 year at least (that's my guess anyway) but what if house itself doesn't stand that long? what if something major happens to the house itself and all of the $$$ spent on renovation will be waste of time & money.
So, can someone help me to decide what are the things I need to be looked into OR consider when assessing whether to renovate or not, if so how much $$$$ to spend on renovation OR even whether it's worth to spending any $$$ or not?
I wish i had somebody with building/construction knowledge who can visit my property to advise whether it's worth OR not spending any $$$ on renovating my current property, if that is the case I rather save those $$$$ for my investment property. Are there any companies that do these kind of consultation??
NB: the current condition of bathrooms is just average doesn't need urgent upgrades but would be nice to have a nice toilet and front yard is kind of mess, again love to have a retaining wall with nice garden for my kids.
