Tips to Increase
your Home's Value

Keep it clean

The saying that you only get one chance at a first impression is true. So, make the inside of your home shine from the moment someone walks through the door. Make sure you get into all the little nooks and crannies that are sometimes over looked and really make your home sparkle.

Get it inspected

Not all home improvements are cosmetic. Dilapidated roofs, termite infestation or haphazard, outdated electrical systems - how can you fix something if you don't even know it's broken. Call an inspector to check out the “hidden” areas of your home that you wouldn’t usually think of. The inspector may discover problems that could ultimately affect your home's value. Small problems can quickly become big, expensive problems. The longer you put off repairs, the more expensive those repairs will be.

Paint! Paint! Paint!

One of the most effortless and cost-effective upgrades you can choose is paint! Newly painted rooms look clean and refreshed and that shouts added value. Something to keep in mind when selecting paint colours, is that neutrals appeal to a greater audience, making your home more desirable to more potential homebuyers.

Update the "Washroom"

A great room to give a face-lift to is the bathroom. The bathroom is one of the two main rooms that will benefit you most with a new look. Simple cost-effective changes like replacing an outdated vanity, an old bathtub, installing new taps and shower heads, or putting in a new tile floor. All of these updates will ensure a greater value on your home plus a beautiful updated, modern look.

Update your Favourite Room in the House

To escalate your home's value, kitchen updates are essential. Start by changing up just one item, such as a stained or cracked sink or replacing your old splashback or why not replace that old stove with something new and modern? Even the smallest kitchen updates will add great value to your home.

Stay on top of the game with Regular Maintenance and Repairs

Walk around your home and make a list of all the little things that are in need of repair. Separately, small repairs may not seem too important, but if every room has just one thing wrong, those small things will add up and give the feeling that your home has been neglected. Staying on top of maintenance will remove problems in the future should you decide to sell.

Bonus – Get organised

Organize the various rooms in your home and make sure you keep them organized. How will this increase your home's value? Easy - a clutter-free home appears cleaner and larger, which is much more appealing to potential homebuyers and therefore more valuable to you.
