Increasing the Value of Your Home & Making It More Attractive to Potential Buyers
- 25 Feb 2016
Add a Conservatory
To add a beautiful new room to your home that will allow you to bring a little bit of the outside in, consider having a modern conservatory built. This will allow you to increase the amount of space in your home, thereby adding more value to your home while also giving you a new room to relax or entertain in. Large windows will allow you to take in the beauty of the seasons throughout the year, and because conservatories aren’t found on all homes, this is also a perfect
way to make your home truly stand out.
Updating the Walls and Flooring
Another way that you can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to buyers is by simply updating the walls and flooring throughout it. If your carpets are looking old and dated, have them replaced. If your walls haven’t been painted in a few years or they have colors that wouldn’t be considered attractive to homebuyers, have them repainted, and use neutral hues that will showcase the beauty of each room without turning people off. And if you have hardwood floors, make sure that they’re properly varnished and maintained so they look like new.
Install Smart Technology
Smart technology can enhance the value and attractiveness of your home by making it easier to save money on your energy bill every month. And you don’t need to splurge on solar panels either. Instead, you can take a more affordable route and have a smart thermostat installed for around £249. Use this to program your home’s heating and cooling system so that it will turn on and off only when necessary, thereby saving you money every month. When homebuyers see that they have the potential to purchase a home with this technology already built in, they’ll be more willing to put in an offer.
Clean and Stage Your Home
Cleaning your home doesn’t cost you any money, but it can make a dramatic difference in its appearance and attractiveness to homebuyers. So go ahead and work on one room at a time, making sure the floors are spotless, the walls are clean, and all clutter is removed. Then stage your home by rearranging the furniture, if necessary, and making sure your décor is placed strategically to make the most of the space. Finally, head outside and make sure the exterior of your home is also cleared of debris.
With the simple tips above, you can invest a small amount of money but get a huge return for your efforts because you’ll be making your home more attractive to buyers who will be willing to pay more for it.
