If you’re looking to sell your home, or if you just want to increase its value, one of these tips could be right for you. Making the most out of your existing home could not only make it nicer to live in, but also make it more appealing — and valuable — if you’re trying to sell it. Thankfully, some of these tips could help make your home worth more without costing too much to put in place — let’s have a look at them.
Re-partition some interior walls
With open-plan living becoming more and more popular, it could also improve your property value and make it more appealing to potential buyers. So if you’ve got some non-integral internal walls that can be moved round, you might want to try it. But remember to check with a professional before you make any changes; you need to know for sure that the walls you’re moving aren’t structurally important to your home before you move them.
Another thing you can do is re-arrange bedrooms. If you’ve got an extra large room upstairs, it might be better off as two smaller rooms — extra bedrooms normally increases your property prices. Again, check you aren’t moving an integral wall before you do it!
Convert your garage
Another cheap way to get more living space or potentially a downstairs bedroom is by converting your garage — you might not even need it if you’ve got a big driveway. Converting a garage is relatively cheap and easy because you only have to brick or seal up one end and then simply decorate. While you should be able to get planning permission to do this relatively easily, make sure you get it before starting work. Hiring a company like Removalist Perth can help you get the stuff out of the garage.
Install exterior lighting
Not only can some great modern lighting make your home look impressive in the evening, it also serves as a security feature. Both these things could make your home more valuable and more enticing to potential buyers.
Renovate the kitchen and bathroom
If you can’t afford to decorate every room, target these two first. While they’re normally the most expensive to do, they’ll also add the most value and wow the most visitors. Make sure you don’t go over-the-top with modern fancy interiors, and keep things clean and simple. You don’t want your specific tastes to put off potential buyers.
Host an open day
One way to really get lots of people interested in buying your home is to host an open day. Advertise it clearly, invite as many people as possible and make it a pleasant experience — you could have a few offers by the end of the day. Try putting out some food and drinks to make things even nicer. When people know that someone else is interested, they’ll not only act quicker but also might put in a higher offer.
