Ways You Can Help Increase The Value Of Your Home
Are you looking to get your home on the market? Are you looking for ways to increase the value before making the sale? Whether you’ve got the budget for a complete makeover or just want the odd few jobs doing, the following are a few of the many effective ways this can be achieved:
Redecorating is the most popular and achievable home improvement with there being various ways you can do this such as applying a lick of paint in different rooms and doing general maintenance around the house. However, you may want to consider a few other areas that sometimes tend to go under the radar, such as:
- Peeling paint and wallpaper
- Dust, dirt and mould on walls and objects around the house
- Dripping taps
- Creaking doors, floorboards and loose panels
- Mouldy sealant in the bathroom
- Broken lights
One of the first things homebuyers look for when viewing homes is the kitchen area. If you’re able to set aside a sizable budget to help modernise it, whether that’s fitting new appliances or giving it a proper makeover, it will immediately add a lot more appeal and value. However, if you don’t have a big budget, there are a lot of smaller improvements that can be made such as repainting units, changing cupboard doors, handles, worktops and adding good lighting in the room.
Buyers might be willing to spend a little more on the property knowing that the kitchen is in full working order and not in need of any drastic changes in the immediate future.
A tidy, attractive and well-designed garden can help add great value to your property. In recent months, it’s been reported that there has been a surge in demand for homes with gardens, as families look to spend a lot more time in them following lockdown. So, if you’ve got a garden, start clearing the pathway, cut bushes, hedges and overgrown trees as well as adding some vibrant colours with plants and decking to help it stand out from others on the market. This could end up being a big unique selling point for your home!
