The Block is regarded by many to be an educational resource for real-estate curious viewers. Without a doubt, the Channel 9 program has proven to be more than just another substance-lacking reality show with its competitive spirit as 5 couples compete to renovate and sell homes at auction for the highest price. Not only does the show highlight emerging design themes, but it also educates viewers on the financial considerations one must keep in mind when renovating a property. I sat down with The Real Estate Conversation to discuss the lessons renovators and home buyers can learn from The Block.
In terms of design, an awe-inspiring entryway is a surefire way to leave a positive impression on prospective buyers. A few teams from this season have capitalised on that design tactic to encourage a higher purchase price come auction time. Renovating for a target demographic is also a prevailing theme on the program. This season, the buyers are likely to be young professional couples, downsizers, and young families. So, the spaces must reflect that by having modern and on-trend fixtures to excite that market. Read more of The Block’s most helpful property renovation tips here.
