How to Maximize the Value of Your Home

online estate agents - property value assessment services

Many people wonder how they might make the most out of their home by making it more valuable, especially given the trend of rising house prices in recent years. Adding value to your home need not be a difficult task, and even the smallest improvements can make a huge difference to price when the time to sell arrives. Here are some of the common ways to maximise the value of your home.

Add Extensions

Whether it’s adding a conservatory or converting the attic, extensions can go a long way in creating more space and adding a unique edge to your home. More space often equates to greater value, so adding extensions can often be one of the quickest ways to increase the price you get for it if/when you sell.

Ensuring any extensions added are of the highest quality is of paramount importance if you want them to truly enhance your home. You may also need planning permission from your local council if the extension has the chance of impeding your neighbours’ view or is very large

BONUS TIP: If you're constructing from scratch, it's always wise to have a "punch list" to keep track of progress and not waste any funds on unexpected issues. If you've never heard of a punch list, check out this article titled: What does a construction punch list look like?

Landscape the Garden

Gardens are one of the most popular spaces of any home, especially in summer, so it makes sense to ensure that yours is up to scratch if you want to increase your home’s overall value. Hiring a landscape gardener is an effective way of improving your garden, as they can totally transform its layout and features.

They can, for instance, add patios, flowerbeds, trees and make it incredibly appealing to the eye. The garden is undoubtedly a place where you can be both creative and dynamic, and really make your home shine by making it as unique as possible.

Use a Cost-Effective Estate Agent

Whilst using a high street estate agent is probably one of the more popular, easy options when it comes to selling property, they are often very costly, and may not be the most effective option out there.

Online estate agents like Hatched are becoming increasingly popular, as they usually offer their services for a fixed fee rather than a percentage of the home’s value, so work out cheaper in most cases. Using a cost-effective estate agent means you could get significantly more money overall when you sell your home.

These are some of the most basic ways to add value to your home, but there are many more which can often be just as effective, so do some research/calculations to find which might best benefit your individual property.
