Below we have some house valuation tips to help boost the value of your home
First impressions count
A buyer will have an impression of your property before they even enter, this is why it is important your home is as attractive from the outside as it is in the inside. If you have a garden consider tidying it up by cutting the grass or trimming the hedges.
You’d be amazed how many buyers turn up, see a messy garden, dirty windows or a front door that needs painting and just keep on walking past.
When your property goes on the market buyers may drive by your property and these simple things can be the reason a potential buyer decides your home isn’t for them. Its all about “curb appeal”
The DIY jobs that may seem minor and you have forgotten about can be the difference in a potential buyer paying top dollar or holding back. Leaky taps, scuffed floor tiles, chipped skirting boards or exposed light fittings are all minor issues that can be fixed easily.
If you have any quick fixes around the house consider getting them fixed. As small as the job may seem it can have a big impact on a potential buyers decision.
Showing off your space can boost the value of your home
Showing off your space doesn’t have to involve you doing anything drastic to your home.
Anything you haven’t used for a year or so, chuck it in the bin. Why drag it along to your new place to get covered in dust there too? Make a fresh start! Clearing out the clutter will also make your property more attractive to buyers.
Get as much daylight into your rooms as possible. That way your home will feel larger and more open. Roll up the blinds, pull back the curtains and put a lampshade into any dark corners to ‘open’ them out.
