Buying New Construction Homes (Part 2): What to Upgrade Once You’ve Moved In? | KT Confidential E86

Check out part 1: Ktrealty  – Buying New Construction Homes Part 1 – What to upgrade & Home Inspections | E85.

On today’s podcast, episode #86, we discuss which upgrades you should do to your new home that will not only help customize it and make it your own, but will also help out when it comes time to sell.

Things like painting and updating light fixtures are excellent ways to make the house your own without too much work. These upgrades can also increase the value of your house for resale when compared to the standard builder features. Another thing people should look into as soon as possible is landscaping. The best time to plant a tree is as soon as you can, so after putting some thought into it, getting a jump on the front and back yard is an excellent idea.

With all options available for upgrading homes, we cannot stress enough that if you are going to upgrade anything in your house, make sure to do it with enough time to enjoy them yourself.

Which upgrades will increase the resale value of your home, which improvements should be done ASAP when moving into a new home, and what upgrades can really go a long way in terms of comfort and providing you with a personalized living experience. All of that and more on today’s episode of KT Confidential – Real Estate Podcast.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two of them compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
