Houses for sale in Hawthorne may benefit from a green makeover to help increase marketability.
With today's focus on eco-friendly living, a few clever renovations may make the world of difference to planet-loving buyers.
Solar panels have grown in popularity in Australia over the past few years, and with good reason. They can help you generate your own clean electricity, simply by turning sunshine into power.
Some state government feed-in tariffs mean that if your solar system generates more electricity than you use, you may be reimbursed for the power transferred back into the grid.
If your home has the ability to use a rainwater tank, think about installing one of these. It can capture all rainwater and utilise it for washing, toilet flushing and watering your garden. This may reduce the household consumption of mains water, which can still be utilised when rainfall is scarce.
When renovating your home to sell, try using eco-friendly paints. Varieties with low or no VOC (volatile organic compound) levels means your home will be protecting the environment, and a fresh coat of paint always looks great.
