Looking to add Value to you Home?
If you are planning to sell your home, your main goal is to get the best price for it. The only way to do that is to have it in good condition. There are a variety of home improvement tips that you can do to bring up the value of your home. Some are small, diy projects if you don’t have much money in your renovation budget. If you have the extra money to invest, there are larger projects that you can take on to improve your home’s worth greatly.
If you have enough in your renovation budget, a kitchen renovation can bring up the value of your home a great deal. Kitchens are one of the main things that sells a house. Replacing old appliances with new ones, replacing the floors, repainting, and adding a backsplash above the sink, and even adding an island can modernize your kitchen, making it appealing to potential buyers.
While renovating your bathroom may not be as costly as renovating the kitchen, it can greatly increase the value of your property and is well worth considering. Replacing a single sink with a double sink and tiling the shower can add value and bring more interest to your home.

Replacing Carpet with Wood Floors
Wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the house was very popular 10 years ago, and was a huge selling point. Today, however, hardwood floors are what people are looking for. You can greatly raise the value of your home by replacing the carpets with hardwoods. Even if you cannot afford real hardwood, you can use hardwood laminate. It looks the same at a fraction of the cost.
The condition of the windows in a home is very important, especially when you are trying to sell it. If you have dated, single glaze windows with paint peeling on the window sills, buyers will likely purchase a home that resembles yours….but with better windows. Replacing the windows with double glazing means that potential buyers can save massively on their future heating bills, hugely complementing the worth of your property.
The first thing that potential buyers see when they visit your property. If the landscape is a mess, it can ruin the home’s curb appeal, after all, first impression count for a lot! Even minimal changes to your garden can have a huge impact on the value of your property. A quick trim of the bushes, cutting the grass, tidying up the plants can have a massive effect on a property’s appeal and ultimately, how much you’d be able to sell the property for.
