If you want to increase the worth of your home but reluctant to spend lots of money then read these top tips from us here at Villager Homes. We speak to so many people preparing to sell their property who wish they had made little changes to add thousands to their market value. Think ahead – can you imagine selling your home in the future? If the answer is yes, then read on, we might just be able to help you in the long-run.
- Update the kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house and is a major factor buyers consider before making their decision on the whole property. One of the best investments you can make is sprucing up your kitchen so it is fully equipped with a good layout.
- Freshen up that bathroom
Along with a good functional kitchen, buyers pay great attention to a dazzling bathroom. Even simple purchases like a new showerhead and shower curtain will do wonders. Add a lick of paint, clean that mirror and add a nice bright new light fitting.
- Add a conservatory
Ok, this is slightly more of a renovation but if you’re serious about adding big bucks, this could be your answer. Bear in mind that it will consume some valuable garden space (so a better option if you have a larger outside area), but many buyers love the added inside room that a conservatory offers. They are also known as one of the best returns on investment in property.
- Insulate your home
We all want to be more efficient and your potential buyer is no different. What could be better than saving money in the interim and adding value to your bank balance in the long-term?
- Give your garden a makeover
What do you think when you look at the entrance to your home? First impressions are so important. Cut those bushes back, get some flowers out…invite that buyer into your home. The exterior of your property is more important than you might give it credit for. Now look at your back garden…this is where you want the buyer to picture sitting out of a summer evening, glass of wine and book in hand. Add some colour, add seating, add it all (but not too much, less is often more!).
You needn’t do everything at once – space it out, enjoy the project and watch as your home starts to subtly transform. When you are ready to sell, you will be able to say you added the most value that you could.
