Renovation Tip #18: The Right Home

Renovation Tip #18: The Right Home


When we're searching for a home to renovate we have a specific list of criteria that the home must meet. Today we're sharing a few items from that list with you!

Good bones · Structural issues will quickly eat into profit margins, so we're always looking for homes that have a sturdy foundation. We want to ensure the home is in great condition structurally so that we can focus on more cosmetic changes.

Great location · 5338 Fillinger Cres was the ugliest house on a beautiful and well-known street in North Nanaimo. We knew that we could add value to this home through renovation, but the major home value would come through the fantastic location. 6266 McGirr Rd was another example of an ugly home in a wonderful location. This property sat untouched across from McGirr elementary, but had such great potential.


Potential · Speaking of potential… When looking for a home to renovate, we're always thinking about how we can add value to the home and add value to the lives of the future homeowners. Can we add a larger custom shower like we did in 6266 McGirr to improve the ensuite? Can we reconfigure the living space to make it more family-friendly like we did in 419 Sealion Place? How can we change this space for the better?
