How to set achievable goals with your home
Setting New Year’s resolutions is a long-lived tradition, however, this year is set to be slightly different.
Due to the pandemic, goals – such as travelling the world – will have to be put on hold due to restrictions.
As a result, many people are looking for achievable goals and challenges closer to home, and renovating your property is just one area of our lives we have the power to transform in 2021.
Here’s how you can get started with your renovations…
Make a schedule
Before you get ahead of yourself and want to change everything in your house right away, take a step back and create a plan you can stick to.
This will ensure you don’t take up too much time focusing on everything at once, allowing you to remain stress-free and organised.
Create a budget that doesn’t pinch every penny
Everyone loves to save money where possible, however, if your budget is too stringent, this could cause your goals to fall short.
When renovating, you want to aim for the grand picture in your head as much as possible, and penny-pinching won’t help at all.
Take the time to carefully save so you don’t find yourself struggling unnecessarily, and focus on the little things that can be changed without too much expense.
Have goals that are measurable
When starting a project, it is natural to want to see immediate results.
Depending on just how much work is required, you might want to consider planning out key milestones that will signal when the next phase of development has been reached.
That way, you won’t lose heart from any potential setbacks or delays.
Ensure you can’t forget your resolutions
Plaster reminders of tasks you need to complete all over your home, meaning you can’t miss or avoid them.
Whether it’s a big A3 poster or a post-it note on the computer, this will keep your goals fresh in your mind.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing
