How To Increase The Value Of Your Home?

When it comes to selling or renting your property, it can be an exciting, yet sometimes stressful time. 

You may have tried many different things to try and attract potential buyers but have you tried adding value to your home? 

There is a number of home improvements that significantly boost the property value and help you get the most for your money. 

In this article, we take a look at some of the ways you can increase your home’s kerb appeal and raise its value. 

  • Replacing old windows 

Well-performing double glazing is becoming a must with buyers so if your windows only feature single glazing or are old and beyond repair, then you could be missing out on a potential sale. New windows will make your home more appealing to buyers and, therefore, actually increase the value of your home too. 

When replacing your windows, it is important to consider the style of window you choose. Your new windows should match the character of your property so that they don’t look out of place. For example, if your home is more traditional, then sliding sash windows will perfectly complement its aesthetic.

  • Create a focal point with your front door 

 Your front door is usually the first thing that buyers will see when visiting your property so it is important that it makes a good impression. The colour you choose can completely transform the look of your home. If you want to create an aesthetically pleasing exterior, then replacing your current front door with a coloured door is a great way to do so. Also, it adds value. 

It is important to get the colour right as it should compliment your home. Need some inspiration? Well, if your home is a period or traditional property then a Chartwell green door will create a country feel and make a stunning addition. Whereas, if your home is more modern in style, then grey door will give it a sleek and contemporary look.

  • Expand your home with a conservatory 

Fitting a conservatory to your home holds a whole host of advantages. If your house is short of space, with a conservatory you can add some much needed usable space that you could use for a whole range of functions. A conservatory will also flood your home with natural light creating a lighter and more airy space with that added wow factor. All these things are a real draw for potential buyers and will undoubtedly increase the value of your home. Although this may be a more expensive option, the benefits of a conservatory and the value it adds make it a worthwhile investment.
