10 Aug WHY IS IT DIFFICULT TO MAKE A CHOICE?
‘I don’t know where to start’ – when it comes to the options involving maximising a property’s value and appeal, this is a common challenge among vendors. Though the most feasible solution comes in the form of a property makeover, there are decision points at the onset that every vendor has to go through before a project starts. Then again, they don’t know how to start.
Belinda Grundy sees this day in and day out and she shares her insights about the function of choice when it comes to property makeover.
The absence of options
You know that you need to do a property makeover but you don’t know what exactly it is that you need to do. At times, choosing between the parts of the property that needs the most attention becomes some sort of an existential dilemma.
Enter the expertise of a property makeover specialist. At the onset, the property makeover specialist will conduct an ‘inspection’ of your property to identify the areas that need the most value-add work. Once that’s done, you’ll have a fantastic idea about what to do and where to start. But that’s not all.
The presence of options
Sometimes, the problem doesn’t lie on the absence of options. Some vendors don’t know how to make a decision because there’s too many options laid out for them. This is called ‘choice overload’ – a phenomenon characterised by indecision because of too much variety of choice.
It’s true that, at times, it seems as though the entire property needs a makeover. Then again, the guidance of a property makeover specialist helps you identify the aspects of your property that needs work the most.
Choice and willpower
A property makeover project involves a series of decisions. The theories of choice propose that as you continue to make decisions through the day, your willpower to decide is depleted.
You’ll need every willpower you got when it comes to a property makeover. The services of a property makeover specialist is important because it is their job to point out your property’s hidden ‘gems,’ propose and explain value-add choices, and then implement them with your permission.
Apart from the things that need to be made over, budget also poses a limitation on your ability to make a decision. This makes a role of a property makeover specialist all the more important. That’s because every project requires a plan that itemises everything that needs to be done. By sticking to this plan, you’ll maximise your return on investment.
Finally, when you invest in the services of a property makeover specialist, you’ll dramatically cut down indecision and frustration (or to sustain your willpower). That’s because they have a network of accredited trades, services, and suppliers to do help implement the entire project. In short, if you work with a property makeover specialist, you’ll only have to sit back and watch your property’s transformation and reap the rewards.
