Property prices have dipped and are tipped to drop further, interest rates are rising and cost of living is continuing to be an issue Australia-wide. So, is now a good time to design and build a new carport for your Adelaide home?
Adelaide property market
According to an article on realestate.com.au, Adelaide’s property market is tipped to drop this year. The prediction is that the median price of Adelaide homes will fall between three and six per cent, due to the pressure of rising interest rates.
However, compared with national figures, Adelaide’s property market is looking relatively rosy. In 2022, Adelaide’s median value rose to $648,000, a jump of 7.94 per cent. Meanwhile, prices in many other capital cities fell. And while there is expected to be a fall this year in Adelaide, nationally prices are expected to fall more.
Time to design and build a new carport for your Adelaide home?
If you’re thinking of designing and building a new carport for your Adelaide home, is now really a good time? Are you better off delaying your plans?
Before we answer this, let’s look at the ways that a carport can add value to your Adelaide home:
- One of the key ways of making your home more attractive when it’s time to hit the market is to improve curb appeal. With most carports built at the front of the home, a well-designed and built carport will boost your home’s appearance from the street. This can make the difference between potential buyers stopping for a better look or driving straight past. You only get one chance to make a first impression, so you better get it right.
- The reasons you want a new carport for your Adelaide home are the exact same reasons why it will attract potential new buyers. Carports are practical, help protect your car and increase security.
- A well-designed and built carport will be an extension of your home and will match or complement your home perfectly.
- A carport can also add additional outdoor living space or storage.
Now, back to the key question. Is now a good time to add a carport to your Adelaide home?
The simple answer is yes. In essence, any time is a good time to add value to your home in a property market like Adelaide’s, providing you don’t over capitalise.
You could say that improving your home is even more important in a weaker market. This is because adding value, for example by building a new carport, will make your home more attractive and help it stand out from the opposition.
Adelaide carport. Think Mr Carports
In the above content you may have noticed an important qualifier repeated – a well-designed and built carport. Conversely, a poorly built carport or a carport that’s not customised to match or complement your home, could reduce curb appeal and even reduce the value.
