Home Improvements That Will Add Value To Your Home Before Selling

When you’re selling your home it becomes a priority to make sure you are getting the most return on
your original investment. Although the markets don’t always allow you to get the exact price that you
want there are still some things that you can do in order to help achieve the price you're looking for. Of
course, you need to go off of market trends and often need to listen to the professionals when it comes
to pricing it right but there are still many ways that you can make your home more attractive to potential
buyers.

You can choose to go as big or stay as small as you like. Adding additions to your home such as a loft
conversion, converting a basement or garage and adding a conservatory can add a fair bit of value to
your home however there are small areas of sprucing that can make a surprising difference too. 


Have a look below at some of the improvements that will add value to your home before you sell: 


Redecorate And Complete Small Repairs 


One of the quickest and most simple ways that you can improve your home and make sure you're
getting the best price is to look into redecorating and finishing off and unfinished repair work. When
people are looking to buying a house they’re often looking for a move-in ready house. This is because
they’re often spending all their funds on the house and have no money left over to complete repairs and
decorating. Adding a lick of paint or toning down dark or bright colors could mean that you're also
broadening the array of people that could be interested in your home. Some of the repairs that you
consider completing include: 


  • Mold on windows or in bathrooms
  • Limescale on bathroom fittings
  • Missing lightbulbs
  • Clean stained carpets
  • Make sure laminate flooring or hardwood flooring is treated and installed correctly
  • Dirty walls, door frames or staircases
  • Squeaky doors and floors


First Impressions


Making a good first impression is one of the top priorities when it comes to selling your home and this
means that you should pay very close attention to how your front door speaks about your home. If you
have a dirty and shabby front door then it will leave potential buyers thinking that that is what they can
expect to find on the inside too. It tends to cloud the view of even the best-maintained homes. You
should be able to spruce your front door buy sanding it, power washing it and giving it a lick of paint.
Even new handles, new numbers or a house sign can make all the difference however, at times it’s just
best to buy a new door. 


Update The Kitchen


Most people who are in the market for a new home are looking for a home that has a well looked after
the kitchen. It’s considered as the heart of the home for most and because it’s a huge expense not many
are willing to take on such a project when they’ve only just purchased a new house. If they can't imagine
living in your kitchen then it can sometimes be enough to stop them from putting in an offer. The best
option if you have the funds is to complete the renovations before you go to the market. Don't worry if
you can’t afford a completely new kitchen as there are other ways that you can improve this room. Some
of the things you could consider include: 


  • Change the countertops. 
  • Change or paint the cupboard doors
  • Update the appliances if they’re staying in the house
  • Add new handles and doorknobs
  • Add new feature lighting such as options from ModernFanOutlet
  • De-clutter and put away anything that doesn't get used


Updating The Bathroom 


Much like with the kitchen, the bathrooms in a house are often one of the top priorities for potential
buyers. Having a grubby, outdated bathroom can lead to people not wanting to purchase as this is another project that many don’t want to complete when moving. It’s very common now for people to
replace their bathrooms before going to market, it’s proven to add more value to the house and also
gather more interest from buyers. Some of the areas you should focus on include: 


  • Regrouting
  • Replacing or updating damaged tiles
  • Eliminating limescale
  • Installing a new shower screen and showerhead
  • Updating the taps
  • Adding a railed radiator
  • Updating the lighting
  • Treat and remove any mold
  • Replace the toilet seat
