The team at Loftplan are very keen on helping people add value to their homes. In this blogpost we’re going to look at the very best way that you can improve the value of your property. These four tips come straight from property experts online and our own team who have over 30 years’ experience in the home improvement and loft conversion trade.
So, without further delay we’ll look at the best ways to improve the value of your property.
Kitchen means cash
People looking at properties always look at the kitchen, is it tired? Does is look old fashioned and dated? A new kitchen always adds value to a property. However, you need to make sure that the kitchen fits in with the rest of the property, and you should aim for neutral colours if you’re thinking of selling in the future.
Storage is important, and reducing clutter in the kitchen always makes it look more attractive. Clear surfaces can make a room look bigger. Flooring is important too and the final finish on all surfaces should be of the best quality. Most people live with a kitchen for 7-10 years, so you’ve got to make sure it’s built to last.
Windows add value
There’s nothing worse than flimsy windows. Most people expect double glazing but this can be expensive. However, if double glazing is done by a reputable company you may find that the windows will last for decades and when you come to sell the property it will help you achieve a good valuation.
Old windows are also usually breezy and make your house colder in the winter. This can impact your house price. While new windows might be expensive you’ll find that they add thousands to a house valuation and pay dividends should you decide to sell or re-mortgage.
Bathroom’s with a wow factor
We spend a surprising amount of time in the bathroom and it’s also one of the most functional rooms in the house. Having a new bathroom suite in your main bathroom can really impact the price of your property.
However, having more than one bathroom is also very attractive to buyers looking for a new place to live. Even better, if the bathroom is en suite. Spending money on a bathroom always adds value to your property.
Loft conversions, making the most of your space
Making the most of all the available space in your house is a must if you want to improve the value of your property. That’s why more and more people are looking to the space in their loft.
A loft conversion is one the best things to do to your home to improve its value. Depending on the size of your loft, you can gain one, two or even three extra rooms. Loft conversions are often better than extensions as an extension can take away exterior space in your garden. With a loft conversion you get extra room without sacrificing it elsewhere.
