Buying a new home is a huge milestone, but before you can unpack boxes and settle in, you need to close the chapter on your current home –and that includes putting it on the market!
Property is an investment, and with all investments, there’s a favourable return in the end if you’re patient. To help you boost the value of your home, we’ve come up with 5 ingenious upgrades that’ll be a big hit with prospective buyers or renters.
Invest in energy-efficient home features
Eco-friendly features are becoming more important factors for conscious buyers. Society is placing a greater emphasis on environmental concerns and recognise that energy-efficient features save money on utility bills and reduce their carbon footprint. Making your home more sustainable could include home insulation, energy-efficient lighting and solar panels.
Upgrade to high-demand finishes
Implementing popular upgrades is an effective way to improve demand for your house, especially if you want to sell quickly. For example, stainless steel appliances and/or quartz worktops might be a good option in the kitchen instead of other finishes that may not generate as much attention, even if they’re of high quality.
More modest modifications that can boost buyer interest include switching from brass doorknobs and locks to brushed nickel or replacing yellow bulbs with brighter LED lights.
Improve your front garden
Have you heard the term curb appeal? In the context of selling a home, curb appeal refers to the appeal of the property as seen from the street. Affordable landscape improvements and other minor modifications to the front of your property can help boost its value for both appraisers assessing it and potential buyers.
Renovate your bathroom and kitchen
Kitchens and bathrooms tend to have the most notable first impression on buyers. They’re also one of the quickest components of your home to become outdated. So, if you plan to remodel, then the kitchen and bathroom are great places to invest your money.
Give the home a fresh coat of paint
Painting your home is an affordable improvement that can make a big difference on the overall look and feel of the space. Paint has the power to make old surfaces look new and can instantly freshen up the atmosphere.
