If you are planning to sell your property (even in the future), you need to make it stand out from the rest of the listings in the market. This means, it should be in a good condition and have excellent features that add value to it.
The First Impression Matters
When you’re preparing your house for an open inspection, there are some basic rules to follow; hire the service of a staging professional or stylist, and start on some small projects that will go a long way in making your property look more attractive to prospective buyers. There are a number of small yet strategically planned home improvements that can increase the value of your home, here are some of them:
Spruce-up the Outdoor Spaces
Focus on giving the exterior spaces of your house a complete overhaul. Ensure that the exterior walls are well painted and that the entrance looks attractive and welcoming. Ensure that the garden spaces are manicured well and that all the outdoor features are in a state of good repair. All these things add to the curb appeal of your property and up its value too.
Build A Deck
This outdoor feature adds significant value to your home. You can choose between a timber, aluminium or composite deck. A home with an alfresco space sells much faster than one without.
Consider Adding A Swimming Pool
A swimming pool always provides excellent return on investment. While it isn’t cheap to install a pool, you and your family can spend leisurely moments in and around it and it adds considerable value to your home and increases its resale value by a good margin.
Revamp the Bathroom Spaces
Bathroom renovations can sometimes be expensive and time-consuming, based on the type of renovation you are getting done. Most homeowners don’t realise exactly how much of value a bathroom renovation adds to their home. Potential buyers recognise that bathroom remodelling and designing can be expensive and if you have already included some nice features and revamped the bathroom spaces, which can be a good selling point for you.
Even when you are getting any home improvement features installed, you should ensure that you maintain a neutral styling in the installations. For instance, if you are getting a decorative, textured wall set up in your home, if you make it too whimsical that can drive potential customers away as they may not necessarily share the same tastes in interior décor. While you should design and install elements that you would like to use and ones that suit your preferences, you should also ensure that they aren’t too ostentatious or elaborate.
If customers don’t like what you have done to the house, but still choose to buy it, they will take into account the money they would have to spend to make the changes they want; this can drive down their offer price.
