Are you trying to boost your property value. We came up with some property value top tips. Many people struggle to come to an agreement on how they can truly boost the value of their home, especially ahead of a planned sale. However, it’s often a very simple case of investing wisely in extensions, redevelopments, and complementary decorating tasks. Naturally, the more you put in, the more you stand to get out – and as such, it’s always important to consider the benefits of setting aside a little more than £1,000 or £2,000 to get the best price for your bricks and mortar.
Before we begin, we recommended that you set your budget set in stone so you don’t overrun and end up spending way more than you can make back. Below are some ideas to get the ball rolling, suiting a number of different budgets.
Boost your property value by installing central heating
A house without central heating may be a rarity, yet if you find yourself in this predicament, you may be surprised at just how much a system could add to a home’s value. Just spending £1,000 to £2,000 could add up to £5,000 of value to your house, and you’d also gain plenty from the comfortable warmth it delivers.
Boost your property value by increasing floor space with a conservatory
There’s always the worry that a conservatory can look like it’s bolted to the back of the house, yet making this extension match the rest of the house can really add value to your home. Whether you spend £5,000 or £35,000 on your conservatory, bear in mind that it will add up to seven per cent on a house’s value – spend carefully. It’s also worth thinking of where the sun is during different parts of the day – ideally you’ll want morning and afternoon light to shine through a potential creation’s windows.
Consider a bathroom upgrade
One room that thousands of people see as really important in the modern home is a great bathroom, and it’s not a hard task to improve it – in fact, the more simple the upgrade, the better. You don’t need to do too much, though the devil’s in the details: new taps, a heated towel rail, additional and new shower heads, a power shower and a glass partition could go a long way to selling a house further down the line.
Take down some walls
Open-plan homes are more popular than ever, as buyers look to such offerings as combined kitchen-dining areas. Knocking down walls that aren’t load-bearing gives buyers more usable space, so consider your options!
Whatever you choose to do, make sure you at least plan for immediate return on investment, even if it’s just a price-matching exercise with the new value of your home.
