If you’re thinking of selling your home regardless of if that’s soon or in the future, you may be considering all the different ways you can add value to your property and whether they’re worth it. You may find it beneficial to have your home valued and arrange a consultation with your local estate agent before carrying out any structural work.

Simply redecorate your home

A new layer of paint can go a long way when you’re looking to freshen up your home. Dull and chipped wallpaper can affect the overall appearance of your home and put off potential buyers. Similarly, if you’re existing wallpaper has ripped or started to peel it would be smart to completely remove it and paint the wall instead of re-papering. A neutral colour throughout will create an appealing environment and a blank canvas for potential buyers.

Getting around to those small maintenance jobs

Small maintenance jobs that may have long gone unnoticed should be amended before you come to sell your home. Potential homeowners will be looking at everything in detail, the more appealing you can make your home, the better.

What you should look for:

  • Leaking or dripping taps
  • Mouldy or dirty grout
  • Holes, dents or marks in the walls
  • Broken lightbulbs
  • Carpet stains
  • Dirty walls, light switches and outlets

Upgrading an old or damaged front door can add value to your home, the amount varies depending on the material and style you choose. A good quality front door will improve the kerb appeal of your home.
