Selling? Increase the Value of Your Home with These 5 Simple Steps.

Imagine this. You finally put your home up for sale….and so do your neighbours! With another couple of houses for sale in the same street, how do you make yours stand out from the crowd and get the price you want? Increase the value of your home with these simple steps, and appeal to the buyers.

First Impressions

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so make it count! When buyers pull up outside your home, give them the wow factor. What does your home look like? Give it some kerb appeal. Does it need a fresh coat of paint? Is the front fence sturdy and neat? Are pathways clean and inviting? Is the garden appealing and the lawn tidy?

Charismatic kitchens

Kitchens are the hub of the home. A place where all the action happens. It needs to be functional and ooze charisma. However, kitchen renos can be costly. Don’t despair, there are ways to modernise your kitchen on a budget. Have you considered flat pack kitchens? You could also swap dated tapware and cupboard handles for new ones. Glass splashbacks are another way to liven up a dull kitchen.

Beautiful Bathrooms

This is one room of the house that is always a favourite. People want a bathroom to be visually appealing and inviting. Once again, we don’t need to invest in a full-on bathroom renovation to get the desired result. Update tapware and cupboard handles. Look at the lighting. Bright lighting is a must-have for anyone who wants perfect makeup application. It’s also a good idea if the lighting can be dimmed. This will help create the mood for a relaxing bath.

Perfect Paint

Did you know that painting your home is one of the least expensive home renovations? A new coat of paint can achieve amazing results and set the backdrop for any décor theme. It’s important to consider both the exterior and interior when it comes to painting. Start with the front door to make a grand entrance. Then, look around the rest of the home for any other spaces that could be brought back to life with some fresh paint.

Extra Living Space

With a booming population, homes are becoming smaller and smaller. Add value to your home with another living space….outside! Make the inside flow out. Design an area that screams “come relax with a morning coffee” or “let’s host a get-together with friends and family”. While this is a fantastic idea, it’s important not to intimidate buyers with the prospect of tons of upkeep. Create an outdoor living space that is stylish and low maintenance.
