Tried and Tested Ways to Make Your Home More Valuable

Your house is first and foremost your home; the place where you can be you; the place where you can live, laugh and love together with good family and friends. However, your house is also an asset, and anything you can do to make it more valuable will be of benefit you now and in the future. With that in mind, here are some proven ways to add value to your home…

Pretty Up the Exterior
You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but anything you can do to make the exterior of your home more appealing will help you sell it in the future. Why? Your home’s exterior is the part of the property potential buyers will see first when they come for a viewing, and if it doesn't look good, it could sour the whole experience for them and make your property more difficult to sell. So, power wash the walls, paint the front door and keep the lawn well-manicured - it’ll make all the difference.

Throw Some Cash on the Kitchen
If you want to make the best use of any money you have to add value to your home,then you can’t go wrong with a kitchen upgrade. Think about it - the kitchen is the heart of the home and the place most buyers head for. A bad kitchen can cost thousands to fix, and that means it could cut the value of your home by thousands too. That’s why taking the decision to hire Cabinet Champ and have your own custom cabinets made just for you is likely to be a smart decision. It’ll be a good way to get a kitchen that really works for you and your family too.

Bling the Bathroom

If your kitchen is fine, then showing your bathroom some TLC is your next best bet. If your tiles are old and mildewed and your suit is out of style, switching them out for some brand spanking new sparkling fixtures and fittings will practically pay for itself should you ever decide to sell.

Make the Place More Efficient
Anything you can do, from having HHL Insulation add insulation to your attic to having your old electrics rewired, which will make your home more efficient to run in terms of lower power bills and better environmental credentials will add value to your home because buyers are always on the lookout for ways to save money and buying a home that’s more efficient will make it more attractive. You’ll increase your appeal to the eco buyers at the same time, too.

A Coat of Paint
You wouldn’t think that a coat of paint would have much impact on the value of your home, but if you’re current decor is well out of style or perhaps decorated with bright bold colors that you and your family love, but many other people don't, painting it in neutral tones can and will add value and make your place easier to sell. It makes it easier for them to imagine using the space themselves.

See? Adding value to your home doesn’t have to be hard.
