Five Simple Steps to Boost Your Property’s Value

It’s common knowledge that adding a loft room or building an extension can increase the value of your home.

But there are also some simpler (and less expensive ways) to boost your property’s value.

Check out these five tips below if you’re thinking of selling and want to get the best price for your biggest tax-free asset.

1 – First impressions count. Think of how your property looks from the outside. Kerb appeal issues can be simple to resolve with some tidying up, a clean driveway, a lick of fresh paint, and some easy-on-the-eye plants.

2 – Address any maintenance issues. Making sure that all the odd jobs around your home are finished before you put your home on the market adds value in the minds of prospective buyers. This is because they are not working out in their heads how much it will cost to get certain simple things repaired/maintained.

3 – Add a wow factor. Adding an attention-grabbing feature to your home can elevate its perceived value. Consider a new fireplace, stylish front door, highlighting original features, and/or polishing wooden floors.

4 – Apply for planning permission. Even if you don’t intend to use it, having planning permission in place can add value to your home. Prospective buyers can find the opportunity that permission allows them to be an enticing part of buying a new home.

5 – The simplest tip of all. Have a big tidy-up and declutter when getting ready to sell. The difference a spacious, clean, and pleasant-smelling home makes can end up helping you get more pounds in your pocket.
