Boost your property’s value

It’s common knowledge that adding a loft room or building an extension can increase the value of your home. But there are also some simpler (and less expensive ways) to boost your property’s value. Check out these five tips below if you’re thinking of selling and want to get the best price for your biggest tax-free asset.

5 simple steps to boost your property’s value

1 – First impressions count.
Make a great first impression by maximising your property’s kerb appeal. Start by tidying up the front garden and driveway. Then give woodwork a fresh lick of paint and invest in some easy-on-the-eye plants.
2 – Address any maintenance issues.
Before you put your house on the market, address any maintenance issues it has. The fewer issues there are, the less room there is for buyers to negotiate on the price.
3 – Add a wow factor.
Adding an attention-grabbing feature to your home can elevate its perceived value. For example, consider a new fireplace, stylish front door, highlighting original features, or polishing wooden floors.
4 – Apply for planning permission.
Even if you don’t intend to use it, having planning permission in place can add value to your home. Chances are, prospective buyers will find the planning permission opportunity to be an enticing part of buying a new home.
5 – The simplest tip of all.
Have a big tidy-up and declutter when getting ready to sell. The difference a spacious, clean, and pleasant-smelling home makes can end up helping you get more pounds in your pocket.
