Want to add value to your home? There are easier tricks than building an extension or installing a brand new kitchen. Here are just some of the simplest and most effective investments that will help your home to be worth more.
Give it a new lick of paint
A new paint job can add thousands to the value of your home and whilst costing comparatively very little. This is because it makes everything feel fresh and new. Companies such as Deco-Furbish Painters and Decorators can help to paint the interior and exterior of your home. Alternatively, you could try to paint your home yourself to save money – just make sure that you’re able to do it to a professional quality.
Fix up the flooring
Fixing up your floor could help to add value to your home. This may not require any major upheaval – you may be able to get a carpet professionally cleaned to get it looking spic and span rather than buying a new one, and you may be able to get a wood floor refinished for cheap rather than laying a new one. Companies such as Carpet And Floor Care specialize in these services.
Repair your roofing
A good-looking roof will add value to your home. Whilst getting a roof repaired can be expensive, you’re likely to still add more value than you spend. You may even be able to get away with simply cleaning the tiles using a company such as Hi-Lite Roofing – many roofs can look worn when it just a case of dirt and moss.
Install new plug sockets
Agents will often assess the number of plug sockets when valuing a home. Modern homeowners use more electric appliances than ever before, and having lots of plug sockets can, therefore, be very beneficial and can hence put up the value of a home. You’re best hiring an electrician to add a new socket so that the job is done proficiently. You could even consider adding smart sockets using a company such as Wifi Plug – these plug sockets detect when an appliance is not in use and automatically turn off so that no power is being wasted.
Insulate your loft
Adding insulation is another way to increase the value of your home. Loft insulation is the most worthwhile investment – it can result in the most energy savings and will add the most value of any type of insulation. You can hire professionals such as Warm A Roof to install loft insulation for you. Alternatively, you can buy your own insulating foam to install in your loft – just make sure to handle this material with care as it can be dangerous.
