Whether you’re looking to sell your home or wanting to give it a new lease of life so you can continue to enjoy it without having to move, here are some ideas that will instantly add value to your property.
#1 Curb Appeal
This is one of the simplest and cheapest ways of instantly transforming a tired-looking property into something to be proud of. Easy fixes such as a tidy, well-kept lawn, some attractive shrubs and a clean, clutter-free walkway are important steps that will immediately create a great first impression.
If you don’t know where to begin, think about hiring a local landscaper or gardener to help you. It could be well worth the investment particularly if you’re thinking of selling up. Many buyers make their decisions on a property in the first few seconds of seeing the condition of the frontage.
#2 Doors and Windows
You’ll be amazed at how you can totally transform the appearance and feel of your home with new internal doors and windows. Not only do new windows look better, they will improve energy efficiency and can add almost $9000 onto the value of your property. While new internal doors may not add much to the value, they will improve the overall décor, create a fresher feel and depending on style, might even serve to open up the layout flow to give the impression of greater space.
