If you’re thinking of selling your home, then of course you will want to get the best possible price for it. This post will run through a few simple steps you can take to help to add value to your home, whilst also helping to increase its saleability.
They say the kitchen is the heart of any home. When viewers are looking around a potential house, one of the first things they will undoubtedly wish to see is the kitchen. Keeping the kitchen décor neutral will help a potential buyer to visualise putting their own stamp on it. If you can afford to replace the kitchen appliances and units then do so, though if this is too costly, perhaps consider replacing the door and drawer fronts, adding new worktops and painting the walls. Keep surfaces clear to help the kitchen seem inviting. Speak to your local builder in order to find out the most effective way of updating your current kitchen.
The family bathroom is another room which can make or break a sale. Bathrooms can deteriorate very quickly due to the high moisture content within the room, so if you’re not in a position to replace the bathroom suite, be sure to give the tiles a good clean and repaint the walls. Bathroom styles also go out of fashion very quickly, so in order to help to speed up your sale, you may need to invest in a new suite.
Creating more space within your home will help to add value. Whether you have a one or two storey extension, additional space will provide a fantastic benefit for your home. However, be sure that you plan your extension carefully so as to maximise the use of space, a reputable builder will be able to help you with this. Whether you choose to extend your kitchen, create an additional living space or add an extra bedroom with an en-suite, the extra space will ensure that your home won’t be on the market for long.
These days there are a huge range of designs for modern and stylish conservatories which can suit any style of house. There is no need to apply for planning permission, which can make it a cheaper option than an extension. Conservatories are a fantastic way of creating an extra room which can be enjoyed all year round, and your builder will be able to advise you on the ideal solution for your home.
If you’re limited on space around the outer perimeter of your home, then you may want to consider extending upwards. Loft conversions are a great way of creating additional space, whether you wish to choose to have an extra bedroom or perhaps a games room or office.
It’s always a good idea to speak to a reputable builder who can provide you with advice and guidance regarding the viability of turning your ideas into reality. Of course, after following our tips related to improving your home, you may just decide that you don’t wish to sell up after all!
