3 Ways To Future-Proof Your Home Purchase

As a home buyer, you need to be smart and strategic when searching for the right property.

You must: 

  1. look for a home that not only meets your current needs but 
  2. can also support your growing family, evolving lifestyle and ever-changing lifestyle requirements. 

After all, you wouldn’t want to purchase a million-dollar Sydney property or invest in Canberra real estate just to move again in the next two or five years because it isn’t suitable for you anymore.

Future-proofing your home purchase ensures you have a place to lease or live in that will remain useful, relevant and adaptable in the long run.

But how can you be sure that the property you’re buying NOW will accommodate your circumstances, goals and priorities not just today but also in the FUTURE?

To guide you, let’s delve into the top 3 things you need to consider when it comes to future-proofing your home purchase.

How to future-proof your home purchase

A future-proof property purchase will give you the peace of mind that you’re putting your hard-earned money in the right place, and that you can make the most out of your investment for many years to come.

So, how will you know if your home can serve you long into the future?

Here are 3 questions to ask:

“Does this property offer flexibility for multi-generational living?”

The property you buy should have adaptable spaces that can easily be repurposed or improved to meet the evolving demands and necessities of your growing family.

For instance, if you have children, you must take into account whether the playroom today can be conveniently turned into a study room in the future. You must also look into the kind of outdoor area your children would want for their recreational activities as they grow older – that sandpit works great at the moment but how much use will it get in years to come?

The same goes if you have in-laws or parents that may end up living with you. It’s important that you check the property’s overall floor plan and see if it can be efficiently adjusted to include a granny flat, ensuite bathrooms, wider doorways, lifts or railed staircases, in case they are needed in the future.

“Can this property support the life I want today and tomorrow?”

Your home should be able to keep up with your long-term goals and passions. So it’s important to purchase a property that can accommodate unexpected lifestyle and technology shifts. In other words, versatility is key.

Whether you want to install smart appliances or security, use environmentally friendly products or build your own home office, the property you buy should be able to cope with potential expansion, innovation or remodelling. 

As a smart buyer, you should also consider whether the property has a close proximity to places such as work, schools, hospitals, shops and other local amenities. If you want to occupy the house for a long time, it’s essential that it offers the accessibility and comfort you need at all stages of your life.

“Does the property have the potential to be sellable in the coming years?”

Future-proofing your home purchase also includes ensuring you can maximise the property’s long-term value and that you can sell it at a good price if you ever feel the need to.

As such, it pays to check whether the property has still room for renovation, expansion and upgrades. If the property was overcapitalised or its footprint has already been pushed to the absolute limit, you’re more restricted when it comes to adding more value. 

Remember: the more you can make the house appealing, desirable and functional in the present, the higher the returns you will be able to receive when selling it in the future.

Thinking ahead can make a huge difference

If what you desire is long-term ownership, a future-proofed home purchase should be your top priority.

You shouldn’t settle on a house or home that can’t provide the flexibility or adaptability you need to be comfortable for the next 2, 5 or even 10+ years.
