Increasing the Value of Your Home

Whether you have just moved into a new home, you’re planning to move or you’re just looking for a new project, one thing everybody always asks is how to improve the value of a home.

Paint and Decorate

It may seem like the simplest of things but redecorating your property before you plan to sell it is the easiest way to add extra value. Not only will it allow you to see any minor cracks in the walls and get them filled but it also shows to your potential buyers that care has gone into the home. Our top tip is to use the neutral palette to decorate as it has the broadest appeal to buyers.

Rethink Your Kitchen

Ask any expert, the kitchen is always one of the top ways to add value to a home and the starting point is the appearance of it. Upgrading your appliances to stainless steel and installing countertops that are made from engineered stone or granite are the easiest ways to completely alter the first impressions given off by a kitchen. The finer details like cabinet and drawer handles also don’t go unnoticed so ensure that even the smaller aspects of the kitchen have had thought behind them.

Upgrade the Bathroom

One of the biggest and easiest ways to completely change your bathroom is to bring in the light. Natural lighting illuminates any space and with the shiny interior of a bathroom, you will certainly achieve this if you have an added window in your bathroom. If any aspects of the bathroom are starting to look old or cracked, then it is time for a revamp if you want added value.

Up the Kerb Appeal

The first thing a potential buyer will see during a viewing is the front of the home so make sure you create the best first impression. The simplest way to do this is to have a front door that suits the décor, but that is sturdy and secure too. External issues on a property can put some house hunters off so take a look at improving the finer details like the painting, rendering and even the gates.

If you follow our advice, your home will have increased in value in no time. It doesn’t have to be all about the big renovations, even the finest of details can help. Get in touch with us for more expert advice when it comes to selling your home.
