3 Ways To Get A Better Sale Price For Your Home

Looking to make a fresh start and move elsewhere in 2020? Prior to contacting any estate agents and asking them to come out and value your property, ahead of a potential sale, you should do a recce of the place to see where any enhancements can be made to ensure it attracts a great asking price.

Patio Doors

You want it to have mass buyer appeal, so pull out all the stops and it won’t go overlooked, and it doesn’t necessarily have to cost a fortune to do it – even a few small changes can prove effective.  

From our experience, the following three measures will each add a healthy number of pounds to a property’s price tag:

  1. Bring more light into the space

The inside of your home needs to feel wonderfully inviting, not dark and dingy. Lose any murky indoor feel by making your windows spick and span, fitting bright energy efficient lightbulbs and installing a roof lantern or bi-folding, French or patio doors.

Rooms always appear larger than they are when lots of natural light enters them, which is especially great if you live somewhere quite compact – the trick of the light works wonders.

  1. Convert your garage

Could you do with an extra bathroom or bedroom? You could convert your garage if enough off-road parking is available.

You might not even use your garage to park the car, and instead fill it full of your ‘junk’, as many Brits tend to do.

It’s time that you cleared it out and made better use of the space, particularly as it can add up to 20 per cent onto a property’s value.

  1. Redecorate and repair

A dated décor won’t do your home any favours, and nor will worn and damaged handles on your cabinetry.

Give your walls a fresh coat of paint in a fashionable colour and do some handiwork by removing and updating those handles that are on their last legs.

Our recent blog post about 2020’s hottest trends will provide you with ideas of how you can modify your interior to get it looking on point.
