It’s often a priority for a homeowner to increase the value of their home. Whether it’s as a nest egg or as a means of climbing the property ladder adding value is important. The best bit about this is that there are numerous ways that you can achieve this with most budgets.
Have a look below at some of the top tips for increasing the value of your home:
Think About The Exterior
This is number one on the list because most people focus on the interior of their home and forget about the importance of the exterior. The outside of your home is the first and last impression that anyone gets of your home. It’s important to keep it in good condition and look after it the same as you would the inside. Some of the areas to think about include:
- Your Front Door. If your front door is looking tired and could do with some attention it’s a good idea to make this the top of the list. It should be in good condition, clean and clearly show the number of your house. You can update your door easily on a budget by painting it and giving a fresh look. Sometimes though, it is just best to get a new one.
- The Walkways. Perhaps one of the first things people see. You should always, make sure your paths are clear of debris, clean, de-weeded and repaired if cracked.
- Windows. You should not only make sure your windows are kept clean you should also make sure they are kept in good working order. If you haven’t got double glazing invest in this as its an easy way to increase the value of any home.
Think About The Interior
It can sometimes be a little daunting when thinking about the interior of your home and adding value as it can be hard to judge what you can do that is going to guarantee an increase. The truth of the matter is you can’t guarantee this at all but you can do some things to help maximise your potential:
- The General Runnings Of Your Home- Think about boiler replacement, plumbing in good working order and updated electrics.
- Flooring. You should make sure that all the flooring throughout our home is in good condition. This means cleaning or replacing dirty, old carpets, making sure tiles aren’t cracked and treating wooden flooring.
- Maximising Living Space. If you’re able to add an extension or converting your loft to add extra living spaces is often a good way to increase the value of your home.
- Updating The Kitchen. If your kitchen hasn’t been touched in a while, updating it can be a quick way to add value. If your budget won’t stretch to a full refurb think about updating smaller parts such as the work surfaces, cupboard handles or fixtures.
- Updating Your Bathroom- This is the same principle as a kitchen update. You can also do this son a budget if you look to regrout, change fixtures and replace tiles.
