Are you planning for the future? When you come to sell your home you might be thinking about what you can do to your home or what you can add to increase its value.
Take a look below at a few ideas that you could consider.
A loft conversion can be a pricey addition that could pay off when it comes to selling your home. Depending on the space being converted you are looking at spending between £15,000 to £65,000 on a loft conversion. If you are making the conversion to an extra bedroom, or even a master bedroom with an ensuite this will massively boost the value of your home.
A lot of people looking to buy will love the idea of having a bedroom all to themselves in the roof. There are endless opportunities for people looking for the extra room, they could even use it as an office or playroom for their children.
When you sell your home, depending on the area you live, your loft conversion could add to the value from £35,000 all the way up to £100,000. So it is definitely worth looking into.
When prospective buyers are looking around houses a recent study found that a high percentage will look into purchasing homes that are already green. For example, they are more likely to buy a house with solar power than a house without it. Millennials who are just entering the property market are particularly interested in going green and saving not only on their monthly bills but the planet as well.
Solar power is not the only way to go green, you could use environmentally friendly paint when decorating your interiors. Paint that contains VOCs can create long-term issues to your health if inhaled. VOCs are what cause the awful paint stench when decorating.
By adding solar panels to your home you can expect to increase the value by up to £10,000.
Create Open Plan Space
Open plan living is so popular right now and there is a reason for this. Walls create barriers, it’s as simple as that. Families don’t want their views obscured; they want to create an open family home where everyone can be seen. You can be cooking dinner while your kids are sitting at the table doing their homework or in the living room watching tv. There is no fear or panic about what they are getting up to.
You can go the extra mile and add even more value to your home by adding sliding doors from the kitchen into the garden. Choosing the right sliding doors is vital as adding the wrong ones could make your open-plan kitchen and diner look weird. Be sure to research which doors would be best for you and the house.
Open plan kitchen and dining room can add between £5,000 and £45,000 to the value of your home.
We hope this gives you some ideas about what you can do to add to the value of your home.
