30 Dec Upgrading Your Home for an Increased Property Sale
If you’ve ever thought about building or renovating your dream home, now might be the best time to do it. UK house prices are now 6.5% higher than they were a year ago due to high demand, so we’re here to give you some additional tips on how to upgrade your home for an increased property sale.
How can I increase the value of my home?
It’s almost certain that your home will be more attractive to buyers with a bit of general sprucing up and cleaning, so that’s always a simple but effective place to start.
Large projects such as extensions, loft or garage conversions, the addition of a conservatory or a full home renovation are almost guaranteed to reap high rewards if you have the time and money to do so, however small changes that don’t break the bank can make big differences too.
This is one of the most popular home improvements, and a very affordable option. Updating your home with a lick of paint and some general maintenance can be done at a very low cost and can make a huge difference – modern colours can go a very long way in giving your home a new lease of life.
Adding or Updating a Bathroom
Typically, adding bathrooms have the potential to add between 4-5% to your home’s value. Studies show that in 2019, 29% of homes sold had a new bathroom fitted – so a full upgrade could be worth investing in. However, updating the current bathroom you have can also have an impact – whether that’s re-grouting, eliminating limescale or replacing the taps.
We’d class a big project as a loft conversion, the addition of a conservatory or the installation of an entirely new kitchen or bathroom. According to a recent study, 22% of all homes sold in 2019 had an extension added, which greatly increased the home value and buyer appeal.
Be Energy Efficient
Now more than ever, it’s important that we’re looking after the environment. It’s no secret that there’s been more of a focus on Energy Efficiency and Environmental Factors in recent years, so incorporating elements such as Biomass Boilers and Air Source Heat Pumps could significantly increase the appeal of your property.
