Before putting your home on the market, making some changes can really make a difference in terms of price. Follow these tips to add value to your home and facilitate sales.
Concentrate on certain areas
If you have decided to allocate a budget for the renovation of your property, focus your efforts and your money on some parts of the house. We definitely know that the kitchen, the bathroom and the living room are particularly on the radar of potential buyers when they visit properties. Don't hesitate to refresh the walls, even the ceiling and get rid of any items that make the rooms seem cluttered or unsightly.
Double the number of bathrooms
Families really appreciate the presence of two bathrooms in a home. If you have a large enough bedroom, creating an en suite bathroom is an excellent initiative, since you will be able to offer a parental suite and a second bathroom for children or visiting friends. Contrary to what one might think, this investment is not necessarily very expensive. Just connect a water supply if necessary and install a shower and a small sink. A few square metres are enough for this extra space that will give added value to your home
Give the floors a makeover
Does a grubby lino cover an original floor or tiles? You might want to look at it more closely. Reviving a beautiful parquet or attractive tiles might be a good operation and inflate the price of the house. Paying attention to the floor space may well pay dividends when your buyers come to make their final decision.
Look at your home from a new angle
Over time, it's natural to become used to having everything in place in your home. It becomes more and more difficult to conceive of space differently than you have always known. Still, you have everything to gain by reviewing the use of space in your rooms. If you can't do it alone, get help from relatives who will give you a new point of view or even a home design professional. This could turn your home to a point that you can not imagine, without necessarily having to spend a crazy amount. Losing an interior dividing wall, for example, can bring a sense of space and light that your old home needs.
A games room for big kids
Creating a space where adults can gather for a drink, watch a football game or play a game of billiards can attract many buyers! Millennials and the next generation who have kept a foothold in the world of adolescence, love these dens that remind them of their parents' garages. So, here's a smart way to convert a basement which is not currently being used. Sell it as a space where you can set up a bar, add a few musical instruments and enjoy all the hobbies you want without disturbing the rest of the family.
Utilise your attic
An extra room can easily increase the value of your home. When you want to add an extra room, the first thing you think of is converting the loft or attic space. If there is little space available, it could be used as a storage space or a small office. If you have a larger area, it could be turned into an extra bedroom or a playroom. If you are about to sell your property, our advice is to make a simple conversion that will allow the room to be habitable. New occupants will want to decide how to use the space.
