Address structural deficiencies in buildings
The technical assessment of the state of the structural components of an entire building, even in the case of apartments, is one of the fundamental steps before buying a home to reform.

Having to intervene in the structure of the building can require a large budget, so vigilance is advised to determine if it is worth buying.

For older buildings, it is necessary to investigate the state of wear, but even in recently built properties, the presence of structural problems of interest cannot be completely ruled out.

Treat moisture problems
If the property being purchased shows obvious signs of dampness, such as stains, mold, and peeling paint or plaster, it's worth investigating to find out what it is. This can be the result of infiltration, ventilation problems, or poor insulation of the building.

Depending on the cause of the damp, the cost to remedy it can vary widely. Doing this research before you buy a home will help you understand what additional investments are required.

Changes in internal distribution
Sometimes they visit a house and come up with the idea of ​​completely remodeling it. Imagine changing the location and size of different rooms, removing partitions to add light, or changing the function of a room. All of this can be done if you're doing a complete home remodel, but keep in mind that moving rooms like bathrooms and kitchens, while possible, may mean an increase in engineering budget to accommodate part of the entire floor plan.

Replace windows
One of the most urgent tasks when buying an old house is to replace the fixtures. In fact, many buildings in need of renovation have poorly insulated windows, leading to significant heat loss. Therefore, replacing the windows with more modern and insulated versions will save the cost required to heat and cool the house, showing a return on investment over time, while having the advantages of a more modern finish.

Renovation of bathrooms and kitchens
Changes in environments such as kitchens and bathrooms are one of the factors that have the most impact on project budgets. However, the budgets will be very variable depending on the conditions in which they occur and the necessary interventions.

Also, the quality of the finishes used greatly affects the cost required to complete the project.

Redo the floor
If all the features of the house meet the search criteria, but the floors are old or damaged, or the materials vary from room to room, it is worth investing in new flooring. You can refresh the house with modern finishes and create a uniform surface in all rooms to make surfaces appear larger.

If your budget is tight, there are several inexpensive options to consider, such as overlay flooring that doesn't need to be removed and works well, including laminate or PVC.
