The news is always awash with information about the housing market and how much competition there now is in the UK when it comes to buying and selling property. For that reason, you’ll want to give your home the best chance of selling as quickly as possible and for as much as possible. Here are just a few ideas on how to increase the value of your home.

Add an Extension, Loft or Basement Conversion

One of the most effective, but also most expensive, ways to improve your home before a sale is to extend it into the garden, up into the loft or down into the basement. By doing so, you’ll be adding at least one more room for the prospective buyer to use and so can add thousands onto the price of your home. Although doing so can cost a lot of money, the return on investment is usually justified.

Improve The Garden

Sprucing up your garden and ensuring that it’s clean and tidy is always advisable before a house viewing, but making some improvements to it as well will help to bump up the price. Why not get the hammer and nails out and build a new summer house or install a pond to make your home more attractive for prospective buyers?

Update The Kitchen or Bathroom

Two rooms that are always central to the sale of a house are the kitchen and bathroom. These functional rooms play a crucial part in the liveability of a home, so if yours is looking tired then go for a revamp. Modernising these rooms to make them more functional is a great way to help drive up the value of your property.

Get Smart

Turning your home into a smart home is another great way to make your property into a more attractive proposition for a potential buyer. By installing intelligent controls for your central heating system, you can provide the opportunity for the next buyer to improve their quality of life as well as save some money on their bills.
