Three improvements buyers are looking for in a property 

When it comes to selling your home, there is nothing you want more than for your buyers to love your home as much as you always have.

Preparing your home can feel like a time-consuming and potentially daunting task. However, this is the very start of your property journey, and before you know it, you could be well on your way to your next home. 
 
Recent research into what buyers are specifically looking for may give you an insight into how you can best prepare your home.  
 
Leisure spaces are a big requirement 
The report found that a home gym was one of the most asked for renovation trends, and with the arrival of summer, it is no surprise that buyers are also keen to find properties with outdoor kitchens and al fresco entertaining areas. 
 
Going green with paint 
That phrase may have you thinking about eco-friendly improvements. But, we’re talking about paint! Although it is often said that neutral walls are the best way forward, research suggests that adding a pop of colour by repainting the kitchen, or adding a green feature wall, could give your room a whole new lease of life. 
 
Flooring is more important than you think 
This one may not be the first thing you think of when improving your property. However, it seems that there are a range of styling options that are ticking buyers’ boxes. Interestingly, solid wood, herringbone flooring, or earthy flagstones are all popular choices for buyers.  
 
Whether your home ticks all the above boxes and you are considering selling. Or, if you are simply curious to know how much your home could be worth, why not book your valuation with one of our professionals today?
