It seems like almost daily there are reports in the news about falling house prices or rising house prices, but however volatile the market, what we can say for certain is that if you want your property to be worth more, it needs a lot of TLC.
Maybe you’ve just bought a property that needs a lot of work on it or are just fed up with the way your home currently looks and would love to make big changes. It could be that you just want to redo the kitchen or the bathroom but have been put off by the disruption to your routine – not to mention that you’d lose water and sanitation for a while – as well as the amount of mess the work would create.
Getting away from it all
If you can’t stand the thought of living in the chaos and mess renovation work inevitably brings with it, the most sensible way forward would be to consider a temporary accommodation solution- at least for the time when the bathroom’s out of order.
Obviously, you could stay in a hotel, but if you’ve got the whole family to rehome, that could work out to be quite expensive, what with the room fees, plus the number of meals you’d have to eat in restaurants, and the extra money you’d probably have to spend getting WiFi.
Luckily there is a more cost-effective way of avoiding the work on your home. A temporary accommodation like a serviced apartment gives you the flexibility of a hotel but has all the comforts of home. The entire family can stay together in one place, rather than be put in separate rooms and because it’s got all the facilities and equipment you have in your own house, home life can continue pretty much as normal. What’s more, you can rent the entire apartment for around the same price as one mid-range hotel room. That might make the difference between merely avoiding the worst of the renovation work, and enjoying peace, quiet and lack of mess for the entire project!
