Whether you are looking to sell your home, borrow against your existing equity or simply want it to look its best then you need to discover how to increase its value.
You are certainly not alone. The DIY market is worth approximately 538 billion but it is centred on just 8 countries!
Fortunately you don’t need to spend a fortune in order to increase your home’s value:
The first thing you need to do is go to the kerb and take a look at your house.
This is the first impression that others will get and sets the tone and value of your home. You can talk to a facade engineering firm about replacing the facade of your building. There are many different options regarding the exterior cladding of your home.
You should also look at clearing your driveway and speaking to a gardening firm, if necessary to tidy the yard. This can greatly increase the value of your home.
Kitchens & Bathrooms
One of the most important rooms in any house is the kitchen. It is also generally the most expensive to replace.
A well presented kitchen and bathroom, using one of the latest trends will improve the look and feel of your home. This will increase the value and the interest of potential buyers.
Your kitchen does not need to be ripped out to be improved; you can repaint, replace the cupboard doors and even change the worktops.
The affect will be stunning.
A house that is full of clutter is going to look small and uninviting. These are two factors that will reduce the value of your home.
Simply remove unnecessary items. Valuable or sentimental can be stored in cupboards but you should be ruthless in discarding unneeded items.
An extra tip if you are looking to sell is t depersonalize as much as possible. Your home needs to look lived in but minimal enough that viewers can see themselves living there!
Houses which are bright and airy feel larger and more welcoming. This will increase the value of your home!
All you need to do is removing the net curtains and allow the light to flood your home.
If necessary add mirrors to bounce the light round your house.
A more obvious but more expensive way to increase the value of your home is to extend it. Thos type of building project should be carefully considered before you start it.
The space must be beneficial to the house and improve the flow of your home. Just adding space will actually do surprisingly little for the value unless it serves a purpose.
You might be surprised at how much you can improve the value of your home simply by adding a coat of paint!
Painting allows you to freshen up your home and creates a finished look which is appealing to anyone valuing your home.
In short it looks like you look after your home!
If you are repainting and getting ready to sell it’s a good idea to keep to pastel colours; they are more appealing to potential buyers!
