If you’re planning on moving house, the question of how much your property is worth will likely have come to mind. When selling, you’ll naturally want to make as much profit on your current investment as possible.
Whilst you may believe spending money on a property is a little counteractive, making small improvements across your home can not only increase the value, but make it that little more appealing to buyers.
The good news is there are actually many ways in which you can boost the value of your property and we are here to help with you achieve this with three easy tips…
Incorporating smart technology into your home is not only convenient and lots of fun, it also adds value to your property, for several reasons. Some home automation gadgets, such as smart doorbells, increase the safety and security of the property, which is a strong incentive for many buyers who want to have control of their home even when they’re not in. The ability to control the gadgets in your home from a remote location can also be extremely energy-efficient, such as smart heating and lighting.
2. Save energy
Another way to make your property more energy-efficient and consequently boost its overall value is to install or improve the insulation in your loft. This can help you save over £100 a year on heating bills. Underfloor heating will also reduce your heating bills because the heat rises evenly throughout the room, rather than being lost to the walls and other surfaces. Dimmer switches and LED light bulbs are another quick, easy and affordable way to reduce energy consumption.
Converting your loft space or building an extension are two more excellent ways to increase the value of your home. Of course you will need to check planning permissions and get some advice from your local estate agent before considering any big renovations. Done right, this could be an investment that will pay off in the long run!
