Many people are currently selling their homes due to uncertainty in the markets. Fears that house prices will plummet once arrangements to leave the EU are finalised have many people rushing to sell up and by something a bit less risky in the meantime.
When selling your home it’s important to get it into the best position possible so you can get the most back on your investment. Whether you are looking to make a profit on the original purchase price or just spend some money to get some more back short term – there are many things you can do to add value to your home.
- Install new double glazing throughout
If your current windows look tired and dreary, replacing them can make all the difference. As well as this double glazing has many benefits that accentuates the home and increases the value.
For example, upgrading to double glazing helps keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter as well as reducing noise and block UV rays from your furniture.
Double glazing can be compromised though, and signs such as condensation or draughts suggest this. New glazing can increase the value of your property instantly and make your home more desirable for buyers.
- Increase space with a conservatory
A conservatory is a great way to add more space to your home. You also don’t need planning permission for a conservatory so it doesn’t require much hassle.
Conservatories come in many shapes and sizes and can be designed to complement the rest of your home. They also don’t cost you a huge amount at the same time as adding value to the property and bringing in more buyers.
- Get new front and back doors
The front door is the first thing people see when they come to the house. If you give a good impression instantly, buyers are more likely to want to purchase the home.
There is a wide range of doors you can choose from, timber doors make a great impression and are highly desired and UPVC doors are more cost effective and can be customised to complement the home too.
Adding value to your home can be an important step for many before they decide to sell up. It can help you get the most of your situation and set you up better for moving and the financial strain that comes with moving house.
Replacing windows and doors can help give a good first impression and impress buyers. As well as this, buyers are attracted by more space which can be attained by adding a small conservatory to your home.
These solutions are relatively cheap and don’t take much time or effort to reach. They also make your home much more desirable to buyers and increase its sell by value.
