How to Boost Your House Value on a Budget

When you decide to sell your home, you want to achieve the highest asking price possible. The value of your home is based on various factors such as size, location, age, and fittings and fixtures. A high-end kitchen and bathroom will often add value to a home and loft conversion or extension to add extra space to the house. However, suppose you don’t have the financial capacity to extend your home or carry out structural changes. In that case, you can find simple, affordable ways to boost the value of your home without emptying your bank account. 

Here are some easy and budget-friendly tips to help you increase the value of your home for potential buyers. 

Fresh Paint 

Potential buyers want to walk into a fresh, clean house. Scuff marks and anything that looks too “lived in” will often put buyers off. A fresh lick of paint will boost the overall appearance and value of your home as soon as you walk in the door. 

Choose neutral colors instead of bold and garish shades. Buyers want to see the potential in a home. They want to see themselves moving in and adding the finishing touches. Anything too bold is often not necessary when you are trying to increase the value of your home. 

Clean the Exterior 

Never underestimate the value of a good cleanup. Have your windows, doors, pipes, and walls professionally cleaned. You will be surprised at how fresh, and new your home will look once you strip away all the dirt that has built up over the months and years.

New Doors 

New doors can certainly transform your whole house. Solid oak internal doors work really well in contemporary and more traditional houses. They are high quality, and you can paint them exactly how you want them. Adding new doors will make your home look fresh, clean and they will definitely add to the overall aesthetics of your home. 

Affordable Kitchen Makeover 

It is no secret that kitchens sell houses. A well-designed, spacious kitchen with modern fixtures and fittings will no doubt add some extra value to your home. Instead of spending a fortune on redecorating your kitchen, you can install new kitchen cabinets and work surfaces and possibly new flooring.

 New grouting for the tiles is a must if your kitchen is quite old, and add fresh flowers and a new wall clock. Accessorize your kitchen exactly the way you want it but make sure it’s clean and modern to improve your chances of adding extra value to your home. 

 Affordable Bathroom Makeover 

Bathrooms also sell houses, and if your bathroom is looking slightly outdated, add new grouting and scrub the tiles. New flooring and new taps for the sink and bath or shower unit will make a whole lot of difference. 

Get some fresh towels and bathroom accessories to add a clean, cozy, and homely vibe to your bathroom. A few candles, wicker baskets, and flowers will go a long way in improving the overall appearance of the space. 

Improving the value of your home doesn’t have to cost the earth. Use some of these tips and add some value by adding a fresh lick of paint to your home, installing new doors, and giving your kitchen and bathroom a quick and affordable makeover. A few simple changes will certainly help to boost the overall value of your home.
