Detect Any Structural Issues
Before you even begin to consider design changes and budgets, it’s important to have a maintenance checklist. Make sure you detect any structural problems like a leaking roof or rising damp. All the electricals and plumbing should be working perfectly and updated before you start the renovation process.
Consult Renovation Specialists
Don’t try to undertake such a big and important project yourself. Contact a specialist service that can help you with those home remodeling additions . They’ll be able to steer you in the right direction and get you to consider things you never thought about that will help raise you your home’s value.
Fix Any Defects
Minor issues like peeling paint and loose tiles shouldn’t be overlooked, even if they aren’t necessarily serious issues. If you want to get the best price for your property, then you’re going to have to make sure it looks amazing. With so many new houses entering the market every day, what’s going to make your property stand out from the rest? It definitely isn’t leaky taps, that’s for sure!
Double Glaze Your Windows
Add considerable value to your property by adding insulation to your home through double glazing. Depending on the style of your home, wooden sash windows are definitely the best way to go, as they look more refined than your standard PVCu installation. The good thing about PVCu windows are that they require very little maintenance.
Beautify Your Kitchen
A stunning kitchen can make all the difference when it comes to attracting potential buyers to your property. If you haven’t got the budget for a complete remodeling, make note of the features that you can work with and improve. Maybe it just needs a lick of paint, or a more up to date kitchen counter. Some kitchen suppliers offer a free design scheme to help get you started. Also make sure that all the essential appliances are fitted, such as fridges, washing machines and tumble dryers. Features like extractor hoods help to attract buyers.
Utilize Your Living Space
Floor mirrors are great for smaller homes as they help to maximize your living space. Knocking down walls for open plan designing is another great way to create a larger living space. Paneling a wall with glass is perfect for creating the illusion of a much larger living area. Clean lines, minimalist decor and french windows work very well with smaller living rooms.
Don’t Neglect the Garden
When surveying the garden, buyers are looking for maximum privacy, adequate furniture and well kept lawns and flowerbeds. Make sure that you repair any fences worn down over time, and consider knocking down any trees that are taking up too much space. Buyers will be checking that there’s an area for eating, storage and leisure time. Does your budget allow you to add a water feature or create a patio? Is there adequate lighting? These are all things you need to consider before you put your property on the market.
