Adding Value to Your Home
Following this will help to add value to your home...
Clean, organise, and neutralise your space: Unclutter your property to make it look bigger and cleaner. Buyers need to be able to envision their own belongings in the home; so, avoid using bright colors and too many personal effects.
Keep Your Lawn Green: Get your lawn in shape. A patchy lawn takes away from the home's overall appearance. Your local garden centre has supplies to re-seed/turf those unhealthy areas.
Add insulation to save energy: The most inexpensive way to increase your home's energy is to add insulation, which can reduce heating and cooling costs by more than 25%.
Update kitchen appliances: The kitchen is often the room that buyers gravitate towards first, and an updated kitchen can help sell your home. You don't have to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look. Updating your appliances to the current standard and replacing cabinet doors or benchtop can make a big impact at a relatively low cost.
Update bathroom fixtures: A little change can go a long way when it comes to the look of your bathroom. Updating simple fixtures such as your sink and taps can give any outdated bathroom style.
Build a fence: If you're trying to sell a house, the appearance of a fence adds value to the home overall. Buyers with children or pets will appreciate the privacy and security of an enclosed backyard.
Repair leaking gutters: Ensuring that your gutter is clean is crucial in protecting your home against water damage.
Light up the outside: An easy and inexpensive way to increase your home's outdoor space is to add lighting. It makes it more appealing and safer.
Store and organise: Ample storage space is a plus, especially when it comes to garages and cupboards. Efficient cupboard spaces can help keep your clothes organised and can save space.
