This year’s renovation ideas for increasing the value of your property

Published in Magazine on 9 February 2022 by our Marketing Team

A good investment strategy is to increase the value of your home.

 
Renovations and improvements to your house might increase its worth even if it’s already on the rise due to the local economy. 
Even though the area’s housing values are naturally rising, repairing and enhancing your home will increase its value. 
Our top five ideas can help you improve your home’s looks and financial value when you sell it. 
1. Ensure that your home is in good working order. 
Deep cleaning your home on a regular basis is important, as is keeping an eye out for mould and dampness and addressing problems as they occur. 
Doing this means your home will be well-maintained and the cost of maintenance will be spread out over time. 
Once the time comes to put your property on the market, you won’t have to worry about negotiating a price that’s too low or risking it being unsellable because of a minor fault. 
2. Create and maintain front and back gardens 
Nearly one-fifth of homebuyers desire front and rear gardens as part of their purchase criteria. 
Bonus: You’ll get to work out in nature and build a gorgeous home! You’ll also get to kick back and enjoy the scenery! 
Tip: Nowadays, many individuals are looking for ways to live more sustainably. 
A fantastic place to start is with lush gardens, which provide a welcome respite from the stifling heat of the city. 
You may even think about setting up a kitchen garden, with a wall of herbs as an example, this can really assist with the marketing of your property because it’s so easy to keep up. 
3. Enhance your property’s personality 
Consider bringing back some of your character’s best traits! 
Replace the flooring with hardwood, add mouldings and beams, or perhaps a fireplace or log burner if you prefer something a little more unique. 
These unique characteristics enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property and may even serve as a selling point in the future. 
For at least the sake of attracting buyers, these amenities will help your house stand out from the competition and help you sell it quickly. 
4. Increase the energy efficiency of your house. 
Improving your home’s energy efficiency is essential if you want to increase the sale price and keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket. 
Insulating your home and altering the main doors so that they are properly sealed is part of this process. If your windows are not double glazed, or if they are very old, as double glazing loses its efficiency with time, you will need to replace them. 
It’s also possible that a new heating system is in order. 
The use of central heating is a common choice, but there are numerous more efficient ways to heat your home. 
You can save money on your utility bills and increase the value of your property if you make these renovations as soon as possible. 
5. A bedroom can be added at this point. 
There is no doubt that adding a bedroom to your home will raise its value. 
Because a two-bedroom home will never be as valuable as a three-bedroom home, it’s a good idea to convert your loft if you have one that’s large enough to do so. Add an ensuite for even greater effects! 
Add a home office or a playroom instead of a new bedroom, and you’ll save a lot of money in the long run. 
To make the most of the extra space in your home, consider building a back extension. Both of these choices will appeal to working professionals and parents as remote working becomes more commonplace.
