Knowing which features are most important to buyers can help you renovate your home for a higher profit when it comes time to sell.

When Kiwis do begin travelling again and your Airbnb bookings start growing, maintaining the cleanliness of your property will become high priority.
While some Kiwis plan to rein in on their spending as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, others are planning to spend on renovating their homes. A consumer spending survey that was carried out in the first week of Alert Level 3 earlier in May, found that 38 per cent of respondents planned to up their spending following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
