Convert your loft

 

Loft conversions can cost anything from £10,000 to £30,000 depending on the size of your home. So, you’ll need a decent amount of money in the bank to use this idea. On average, experts say that conversions of that nature could add 10% to the value of your property. That is 10% more than you spend on the conversion. So, paying around £20,000 to use the top space in your home could mean you add around £22,000 to the value. It’s not a guaranteed thing, and sometimes you can make more. However, it is accepted that loft conversions always increase the worth of your property.

 

Work on the exterior of your home

 

As you can see from the image I’ve published alongside this post, the exterior of your property is important. By letting climbing plants grow up your walls, you could change the aesthetic completely. You all know that first impressions count, and so you should start working as soon as possible. Make sure your front garden is immaculate. Pay for a new driveway if you think it will help. Just make your home look alluring from the outside. That will encourage people to make higher offers if they like the property.

 

Pay for new windows and doors

 

Presuming your property has used the same windows and doors for ten years or more, it could be time for an update. You can get some fantastic deals if you use the same company to fit all the new windows in your home. Your estate agent is sure to give you a higher valuation if you have just installed triple glazing. Likewise, new doors are a big plus point. That is especially the case if your property is quite old. You are essentially saving the buyers a bit of cash by taking away their need to purchase replacements. Of course, the value will inflate, and that’s good news for you.

 

So, there you have it. Using those simple tips, you can get a better deal when planning to sell your home. There are lots of other things you could do to get the same results. That is why you shouldn’t copy these ideas to the letter. Use your head, and select only the most appropriate concepts with your situation in mind.

 

Good luck!
