17 Bright Ideas to Add Value To Your Home

Would you like to add value to your home? In this crazy real estate market, you might think it’s easy to sell your home but will you get the best price? Here are 17 bright ideas for ways you can add value to your home in hopes of getting top dollar when it’s time to sell.

  • 1

    Add central air-conditioning - Nothing makes a home feel more luxurious than central air-conditioning. You will also want to seal off any drafts that are getting in from the outside.

  • 2

    Make any outstanding repairs - Get the professionals in. This may involve lifting up floor boards or going behind walls, so make sure you know what the problem is before making any decisions.

  • 3

    Replace the windows - Getting brand new double glazed windows are considered an essential feature nowadays, not only because of insulation, but protection from the outside world too.

  • 4

    Kitchen makeover - Install new sinks and appliances. Even things as simple as changing the countertops can have a big impact on the kitchen.

  • 5

    Bathroom makeover - Make sure the walls have a fresh lick of paint. Something light and bright that will open up the space.

  • 6

    Garden makeover - Make sure the lawn is cut, and the weeds aren't growing through any decking you may have. Plant some colorful flowers and attract the wildlife - a great way to add value to your home.

  • 7

    Extend existing space - Before you plan on building a whole new area, think about what you can use instead and expand on that. This will not only save you money, but time too.

  • 8

    Repair any structural issues - Whether this be rotten wood joints, collapsed slabs or a leaky roof - get it fixed. Things like tile roof restoration and painting will not only improve the look visually, but you can be assured that you won't be dealing with problems any time soon.

    Fix the superficial things - They won't make a huge difference to the value of your home, but it helps. So if you have a door that gets stuck, a stair that creaks or a tap that leaks - sort it out.

    Increase the accommodation - Consider adding an extra room and turning them into bedrooms. You can either do this by building a whole new area or just dividing up the existing space you have.

  • 11

    Add more storage space - Everyone needs storage for their belongings. Create more space, like adding shelves and installing more cupboards in the corner of a room.

  • 12

    Add an awesome feature - Get an architect to design you a brand new, strange looking roof or have an art designer come in and create you a unique, one of a kind piece to go in the center of your garden. Don't go too crazy though as you want something that will appeal to may people.  

  • 13

    Buy more land - If you want to buy more land, you could either use this to build more living space, or just leave it and allow the future buyer to do with it what they wish.

  • 14

    Enhance the character- If there is something quirky about the shape of a specific room within your home - don't change it. Draw attention to it!

  • 15

    Have a separate bathroom and shower room - Even if it was originally one bathroom, think about sectioning it off and the having a huge walk in shower. This may definitely add value to your home.

  • 16

    Off street parking - Nobody likes to fight over parking spaces. If that means sacrificing your front garden for a driveway, it may be worth it. Do check with your council first for approvals.

  • 17

    Make it stand out - Who said you couldn't paint your home a honey yellow? - Nobody! So do what you need to do to make your home stand out. Just maybe ask some friends for advice on the color first...
