Quick and Easy Ways To Improve Property Value
All property owners, whether you are looking to sell your home soon or not, should be interested in improving the value of your home. You don’t have to consider your home as an asset or an investment to want to increase its value. In fact, you will find that as you increase the utility of your home, you can increase the value of your property too, so improvements go together with increasing property valuations.
At Peter Anthony, we are always happy to offer guidance and advice with respect to properties. We are pleased to say we have helped many homeowners to improve the value of their property and receive a more attractive price when selling their home. This is something we are proud of and if you are looking for support, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
TV personalities have considerable influence over people
However, we know that there are people and organisations which have a much greater impact on the property market and homeowners than we will ever have. Whenever someone from the leading property shows on TV shares information about property values or caring for homes, people listen. This is understandable. There are some very famous faces and names in the UK property market who are trusted and respected because of their position on popular TV shows.
One such person is Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs. This show is one of the most popular property TV shows in the UK and when Kevin McCloud offers advice and guidance on the property market, it is likely that people will listen. Therefore, there is a great level of interest in McCloud’s tips on how to cheaply add value to property, which we provide below:
- Be sure to remove all traces of your personality in the house
- Decluttering your home will remove most traces of your personal effects
- Declutter the home to create more space at home
- Make sure the property is cleaned to a high standard
- Make sure you pay attention to windows, ensuring they are gleaming and in terrific condition
- Undertake repair work at your home
- Ensure the garden is in fantastic condition
- Try to improve the views from your home
These are all interesting tips, but they are perhaps slightly basic for people looking to add value to their home. The tips are also rooted in common sense. You would assume that most property owners who were serious about selling their home would ensure the property was spotlessly clean and that a lot of space had been created around the property.
Present your home with a buyer in mind
We believe one of the most important tips for increasing value at home is to consider the needs of the buyer and then present the property to meet and exceeds their needs. There is no need to completely overhaul rooms but adding furniture or finishes that are aimed at a specific buyer will likely result in greater interest in the property.
We also believe that hiring a skilled and experienced local estate agent is a fantastic way to appeal to buyers and add value to your home. If you’re looking to sell your home for the best possible price, make sure you call on Peter Anthony.
