Putting money back into your home is essential if you have any view of selling it in the future. What many homeowners fail to realise is that they’re sat on a goldmine in terms of money. It’s so easy to make money back off the home that you brought because of the contact changes in house prices. However, you can make even more money back from your home if you know what you’re doing. All you have to do is make small improvements and you could be adding the value you need to sell and get a better home. That’s how so many people walk through their property ladder life. They’ll buy a home, live happily in it for a few years and make some big changes, and then sell it on. The money made can either be used for a deposit on a better house, or just to be able to live more comfortably. If you know you’re someone who isn’t set to stay in one spot, this is an idea for you. So, keep on reading, and we’ll show you how you can make some small changes that are no doubt going to add some value to your home!
When thinking about the aesthetics of a home you will most likely think about the interior. We can’t deny that the interior is where all of the magic happens, but that doesn’t mean that the exterior isn’t going to play a big part in the success of a higher revalue of your home. So, think about what people are likely to see first. One of the first places they’re going to look is the driveway that they’re pulling onto, if you have one. Simple tips like keeping it jet washed and lining it with colourful plants will help to make all the difference. Secondly, they’re going to look at your windows to see if they can have a peak of what’s inside. So why not go for something a little different and something you know is going to stand out. Window tint is a concept that businesses tend to use and perhaps churches and places like that. It’s literally the process of having your windows tinted to a different colour. If you can get the outside of your home looking just as funky with beautiful coloured plants everywhere then the tinted windows will match.
Main Room Upgrades
The main rooms in your home are the main rooms for a reason. Your home needs to wow people as they walk in, and they’re not going to be spending all of their time in your spare bedroom. The main rooms of the house are the living room and kitchen, when looking at it socially. The main room for you might be the bedroom. So, let’s stick with the living room for this example. All you need to do is focus on the colours you’re using and if they can be updated. Or, perhaps you haven’t had a new sofa suite for many years and you know that needs a new lease of life. If so you have the potential to completely change your living room. The colour scheme that’s so in right now and will be for a long while, is neutral colours light a really light grey, and then bold colours. At the minute those bold colours seem to be blue in terms of furniture, and then green from some indoor plants. The two together can help to make you feel as though you’re in a luxury spa with a tranquil setting. It’s a great upgrade idea that won’t cost you much at all. As for the new sofas, a plush velvet grey would look great with the ideas that we’ve spoken about.
Garage Or Loft Conversions
The garage and loft that you have is going to make a big difference to your home, one because they’re not being used at the minute other than for storage, and two because a conversion can add a hell of a lot of money. The loft is the easiest to convert because it’s a space in your home that’s just waiting to be used as a room. There are expert businesses who can come to your home and fit it all out for you. From clearing it out of anything unwanted, padding it out with insulation, and filling in a wall. All you then have to do is have carpet fitted, figure out a nice way of getting up there, such as spiral staircases, and make it into a room. This essentially is adding another room to your home so it can also add an awful lot of value if you ever do resell.
