Designing Wealth: How Innovative Renovation Strategies Fuel Property Flipping Success
Property flipping has become an increasingly popular investment strategy in Australia, and for good reason. With the potential for substantial profits over a short time period, it’s no surprise that many investors look to the property market as a powerful tool for generating capital gains.
However, property flipping has evolved from the days of just “buying low and selling high”, particularly in countries with a highly competitive markets like Australia
Now, investors are using innovative renovation strategies in order to differentiate their properties from competitors and unlock significant gains. Here are some of the innovative strategies that investors are using.
Australians are very environmentally-conscious people, and property flippers would be wise to recognise that. Innovative property flippers take note of this, and incorporate eco-friendly upgrades into their renovations accordingly. Upgrades like solar panels, energy-efficient appliances, and water-saving fixtures not only increase the property’s appeal but also add appeal to environmentally-conscious buyers, potentially driving up the sale price. In addition to attracting eco-conscious buyers, these upgrades can result in long-term cost savings for the future homeowner, making the property even more desirable.
Everything in our lives is becoming smarter, from our phones, to our cars, and even our homes. Wherever technology can improve an aspect of life, people are often willing to pay a little bit extra. This is why innovative technologies like smart thermostats, automated lighting, or a security system that can be controlled remotely from a smartphone are all ways to generate additional income when selling your property. Prospective home buyers want to know that a property is secure and convenient, and when you tick those boxes via technology, you increase the potential profits you can make on a flip.
First impressions are everything, and when it comes to property, decor can make or break the aesthetic of a property. Choosing an interior design that accentuates the property’s strong points can help a buyer to envision what the property would look like fully-furnished. This is where professional staging and photography play a significant role in property flipping.
Innovative property flippers utilise high-quality photography and styling in order to make the property stand out online and sell faster and for higher prices. The cost of professional staging and photography is a worthy investment that can yield substantial returns.
Rising to prominence during COVID-19, virtual viewings utilise advanced technology such as 360-degree cameras to create an immersive and convenient virtual viewing experience without leaving home. Due to the ease and accessibility that virtual viewings provide, this technology can increase the chances of attracting serious buyers to your property, and can even add tens of thousands of dollars to your sale price.
Maximising your margins can mean the difference between a successful flip and a flop. By applying these innovative strategies, property flippers can increase the value of their investments and achieve greater success in a competitive market.
