How a Residential Elevator Adds Value to Your Home

With an aging population and an unprecedented housing market, installing a Simplex Home Lift into your property could help futureproof your house, increase the value of your property and give you a competitive edge if the time does come to sell.

In just 30 years, Australians aged over 65 jumped from 8% to 13% and a government report from 2015 found the number of elderly people in Australia is expected to double to 25% in the next 40 years.

Installing a Home Lift ensures accessibility to all, giving homeowners and their family peace of mind knowing they can travel between levels safely, regardless of their age or ability.

According to
“As the population ages, homeowners are beginning to take this into consideration by making their homes more “elder-friendly”.’ By adding a residential elevator into the design of your home, you’ll be able to stay in the home you’ve created for longer while also increasing the scope of potential buyers in the future.”

With the property market being more competitive than ever, it is advantageous to implement features that make your home stand out from the rest.

A residential lift is a great investment that increases the appraisal value and resale price of your home, whilst appealing to a wider market. A fully accessible multi-level home will be of interest to seniors and disabled buyers who would otherwise only consider single story residences.
