How to add value to your home
Our homes are an investment, and can often be one of the most expensive items we buy, so where possible, we usually aim to increase its value while transforming it from a house to a home.
If you’re selling a property or considering adding value to your home, here are some useful tips to help you on your way:
A new colour scheme or feature wall can transform a dated room. A lick of paint can freshen the place up to create a clean, fresh environment – good for your wellbeing and welcoming to buyers.
The kitchen is the heart of any home and it’s always important to buyers. If you can’t redesign your kitchen, a lick of paint or new cupboard doors and handles can save time and money and still be effective.
More home owners are following the trend to extend their homes rather than sell. If you love your house, but need that extra room, an extension is a great way to add space and value for when you’re ready to sell.
Your garden is the first thing potential buyers see and there’s only one chance to make a first impression- clear up that rubbish and don’t forget about the all-important curb appeal!
Adding extra living space to your property can be a great idea, making the conservatory part of your open plan living area can create a sense of space and light. This could be a cheaper option to consider rather than an extension and planning permission is not always required.
The bathroom can be really important to potential buyers, having a clean, fairly new bathroom suite can help the room feel fresh and spacious and is one less additional cost for buyers to consider.
New, properly sealed windows can put a buyers mind at ease, knowing it’s not an issue they will be left to deal with. Dilapidated windows can not only let in the weather, they can put buyers off from a first glance at your property.
