If you’re a home owner you’ll know that the list of property maintenance and home improvement tasks is never ending. To help you prioritise the jobs you tackle, property investment company Quick Move Now has put together its ‘top 5’ list of home improvements that will have maximum impact on the value of your property.
As a home owner it’s easy to get consumed with what your house looks like on the inside and neglect the exterior. Kerb appeal can have a real impact on the value of your home and a few simple steps could add thousands to the value of your property.
Kitchens are one of the easiest areas in which to add value. Kitchens are often the first thing a new owner will replace, so a newly fitted kitchen could have potential buyers willing to pay a premium for your property – with today’s busy lifestyles, potential buyers are willing to pay above the odds for something they can move straight into without the hassle of needing to make home improvement straight away.
Ensuite bathrooms now come as standard in larger homes, and adding one to your property could offer a good return. The addition of an extra bathroom could add as much as 6% to the value of your property, and make it a far more attractive prospect to potential buyers.
Freshen up the internal décor
Homeowners often underestimate the difference a fresh lick of paint and updated flooring can make to the value of their home. A simple refresh of your property’s interior will make your home increasingly appealing to potential buyers, resulting in a quicker sale and a higher sale price.
If you’re feeling brave, and aren’t afraid to take on a bigger job, a conservatory could be the best home improvement you could make. It is estimated that the addition of a conservatory could increase your property value by as much as 5 per cent and is a great way to create an open plan living space or the much-coveted kitchen diner, so if you’re looking to add significant value to your property, a conservatory is our top money-making home improvement.
