We know how to sell your property fast

Is it worth to renovate an outdated property?

We all know the problem of outdated properties that need to be sold. A seemingly nice house can be on the market for so long that you lose hope to ever sell it. Business Insider has recently published their research results about the most common things that make a house unsellable. Among those reasons, the outdated décor was named a deal-breaker. Also, some details like unattractive kitchen countertops or outdated bathroom tiles can cause a house to be sold for much less than the market average.

"Fine-tuning the small details in a home, even if having to invest in some updates, can really make a home's value increase,"

And, on the other hand, renovation is so expensive, it makes no sense to invest so much. Furthermore, the traditional way of renovation is usually related to demolishing, changing the old pieces to completely new ones. That will take time and cost a lot.

Refinishing as Another Option for Upgrading

So at this point, we want to show you another option that is gaining more popularity in North America these days but is already the number one choice in the markets of Europe and Asia. That is a way of refinishing existing surfaces with Bodaq architectural films.

It is a great way to change the look of your property without noise, dust, dirt, and much waste. The process goes much faster than traditional renovation and is much more cost-effective. For instance, feature wall refinishing will cost you $700-900 per 0.01 sq.ft., kitchen refinishing – $2.500-3.500, depending on the kitchen size and the type of surfaces it is made of. And you can even refinish your bathroom with the interior film, as we did in one of our recent projects. For your consideration, here is the price of the shower refinishing – it varies from $700 to $1.200. This, again, depends on the size of a room and the complexity of an installation.

What is Bodaq

So you would like to know what Bodaq is? It is a self-adhesive high-quality vinyl film that can be applied to any surface. There are hundreds of different patterns that look like natural wood, stone, marble, fabric, etc. Furthermore, the architectural film does not feel like vinyl, it imitates the natural material surfaces precisely.
