Looking to maximise the value of your home? You’re in the right place!
If you are about to put your property on the market, there are several steps that will help ensure you get the most out of your investment. Even if you’re not thinking about selling your property any time soon, it’s always worthwhile understanding the ways that you can add value to your home.
Here are our top tips for maximising the value of your home:
Create space with loft conversion
Creating any extra space in your home is a sure-fire way to add value, and a loft conversion is the perfect way to make the most of all available space.
Whether you create an extra bedroom, a playroom, an office space, or a walk-in wardrobe, a loft conversion is extremely versatile and incredibly functional.
However, if you’re thinking about investing in your loft space, remember that the vast majority of projects do require planning permission, so it’s important to do your research.
Decorating is one of the most cost-effective ways to enhance the value of your property. A home that requires substantial work and modernisation in terms of aesthetics, such as painting, can put off potential buyers and prevent your home from selling at its asking price.
From peeling paint, poorly working door handles, and squeaky floors and stairs, through to dated wallpaper and unsightly woodwork stains, there’s plenty of decorating refreshes to help prepare your home for the market.
New windows and doors
Double glazing is now considered to be an essential component in any property. If you already have double glazing but it has seen better days, or you’re yet to invest in it, replacing your windows and doors will increase the value of your home.
Your kitchen is one of the most utilised spaces in the home and, with many of us replacing our kitchen only a handful of times in our lifetime, a modern, well equipped kitchen is seen as a deal breaker amongst property buyers.
If a buyer needs to replace a kitchen, it will come at a substantial cost and inconvenience, so investing in a kitchen renovation now is a worthwhile and lucrative commitment to consider.
A clean, attractive and functional bathroom will instantly add value to your home. If you’re considering a bathroom renovation, to maximise its value, you should ensure that it has a shower and bath, an extractor fan for improved ventilation and slip proof, hygienic flooring.
Replacing old heating systems and wiring is also a great way to improve the value of your property.
