10 Ways To Increase The Value Of Your Home
Looking to increase the value of your humble abode without spending a fortune? We have put together a list of 10 simple things you can do to make sure that your house shows its worth. While these tips may seem a lot like no-brainers, it is always good to have a list to tick off.
Inspect Your Property
Not all home improvements are about throwing a little paint on the walls to freshen up the place, sometimes you need to identify the niggly spots like a deteriorating roof or an outdated electrical system. You can’t fix it if you didn’t know it was broken. Once you have identified the problem areas, call the appropriate people and get it fixed.
Paint, Paint, Paint
Speaking about cosmetics – paint your walls, ceilings and roof. You would be surprised what a little paint can do.
Clean Up That Lawn
Overgrown or patchy lawns are quite an eye sore. Tame the jungle by hiring a gardening company and shape your lawn into something beautiful.
Make Your Home Seem Bigger Than It Is
Believe it or not, this is quite an easy thing to achieve. It’s all about letting the light in – add mirrors to your hallway or replace those aged curtains with vertical blinds. You would be astonished how much bigger your space will look.
Cleanliness Is Key
You only get one shot at a first impression so get out your cloths and dusters! It’s never a bad thing to bring in a professional to give your place a top-to-bottom scrubbing.
Replace Worn Out Carpets
We know that finding and buying the right carpet can be quite expensive, trust us when we say it is totally worth it.
Boost your property’s appeal by updating your windows. Installing properly sealed windows will help lower future maintenance costs and add extra appeal to you home.
Your kitchen and bathroom pipes may need some love. Updating your home to water and power efficient appliances will leave a lasting impression as well as help you save on energy.
Refurbish Your Front Door
Smarten it up a bit. It’s the first thing visitors will see – get a new door knob, a brass letterbox or new house numbers.
Improve Your Kitchen
The showpiece of your house is undoubtedly the kitchen. This room is where we cook, do homework, watch television and hold dinner parties. Install up to date equipment so it won’t look outdated in 10 years’ time.
