5 Ways to Add More Value to Your Property

When selling your home, everyone wants to reach the highest selling price possible. So, it could be an option to look at different ways to improve the value of your property. In this blog we look at the top 5 ways to increase the asking price for your property!

Fix Structural Problems

The quickest way to add value to your home is to fix any obvious structural problems, whether that be a leaking roof, broken wall or damaged flooring these issues should all be fixed before any additional construction work is completed.

Build A Conservatory

Did you know that conservatory’s can add up to 7% onto your property value? Plus, they are also perfect for attracting more interest. It is almost certain that if you add a conservatory onto your home you will get your return on investment. Think wisely about the type of build to go for and your budget, as spending more money does not always add to a bigger value.

Convert Your Loft

Buyers are always looking for additional space which is why converting your loft is the perfect solution. Whether you want to turn this room into another bedroom, study or just a bigger storage section. Loft conversions are an easy way to boost interest and asking price.

Update Your Garden

Some sellers can forget about their garden and focus all of their attention on the interior of their property. But the outside is the first thing your buyers will see so it’s important to make sure the garden is kept up to date, fresh and well looked after. Add some plants around your garden to bring some colour and update old patio furniture to give a modern feel.

Create Off Street Parking

On average a family has 2-3 cars, so buyers are always looking for additional parking spaces off the street. If your property is located on a busy road then adding more parking is crucial. Talk with a building expert that can advise you on the best ways to reajust your property exterior to accommodate more than one car.
