Ten renovation ideas that can increase your home’s value.
Taking care of basic maintenance before you sell your home is a no-brainer, but a quick and cheap renovation can add a lot of appeal for potential buyers, and may boost the final sale price.
Fix those little faults that you no longer notice – leaking taps, rusty gutters, broken window catches. They can make a massive difference to a buyer’s perception of value.
Landscape the garden
A well maintained garden can create a low maintenance feel before buyers even step inside.
Bring the outside in
Opening living areas to the garden can be as simple as adding big bi-fold doors that create an inviting sense of flexibility.
Take the inside out
The garden is a place to relax: a barbecue area, deck, pergola or even a spa all invite buyers to imagine their future lifestyle in your home.
Let the light in
Brightening dark areas boosts a home’s appeal; you can install skylights quite economically, and swap solid doors in dark areas for glass-panelled ones.
Put some colour on it
Fresh paint makes a home look ready to live in. Think carefully about colours, and maybe seek some interior design advice.
A solid footing
New carpets make a home feel new. Again, think carefully about colour.
Installing solar panels or a solar hot water system can add value for potential buyers, who will see future energy cost savings.
A brand-new bathroom can cost a lot. Instead, think of replacing shower curtains with clear glass screens and installing new taps, a water-saving shower head and even a new toilet seat.
Buyers are looking for places to store their stuff – cupboards in the garage and in neutral spaces such as hallways are always welcome.
Some simple and affordable renovation moves can make your home more desirable to buyers, potentially adding to the final sale price.
