Houses are huge investments that can affect our financial futures just as much as our pension contributions. If you are thinking of cashing in and selling your home, here are five must-have home renovations that will help you make the sale.
Install Underfloor Heating
This is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after features in modern homes. Underfloor heating makes a home much warmer that traditional radiators and is more energy efficient.
Underfloor heating is a wise investment too as the reduced heating costs save you money in the long term. It is easier than ever to have underfloor heating installed in your home, and Bbright can give you a quote in seconds. Their qualified heating engineers can install the latest high-tech underfloor heating system in your home for less than you may think.
Open Up Your Home
Home buyers around the country are looking for homes that make life easy. Open plan style homes are in high demand. They make home light and airy and can add extra space and storage.
Open plan makes looking after the kids easy too. You can keep an eye on them from the kitchen or see them in the garden from the front room. This makes open-plan living perfect for young families and is just one of the reasons this style of home is in such high demand.
Invest In The Outdoors
Gardens and outdoor spaces have always been the number one feature that house hunters look for. Having a garden at the rear of your property makes your home desirable and will put it at the top of many house hunter’s lists.
Spending some time and money is a wise investment, and can add some wow factor to your home to make it stand out from the competition. Just tidying up the space may be all it needs but by adding decking, a lounging area with a fire pit, or an al-fresco cooking and eating area you make your home highly desirable.
Add Clever Storage
Homes can be chaotic spaces at times, and if you have a family with young children, you will know how messy living rooms and kitchens can get. Building some clever storage into your home is a must-have feature that house buyers with families of their own will look for.
Having a place for everything, and everything in its place, makes a home look clean and organised. This makes your house more attractive to buyers, and some smart storage under the stairs or in a nook in the kitchen will seal the deal.
Increase Your Kerb Appeal
First impressions are important, and the visual welcome your home gives visitors can influence how they feel about your property and what they expect to find inside.
Spruce up your front door, garden, and pathways. Give everything a good clean at least, but do not be afraid to get out the paint and brushes. Brighten up your windowsills and door frame with a fresh coat of paint and plant some fresh flowers or bushes to add natural colours.
These simple renovations can be the difference between a quick sale and having your home sit on the market for months. Make just a couple of these changes and you will be looking for a removal company before you know it.
