Is 2022 the year you decide to move? Before you do, you may want to add value to your home to make your sale the most successful it can be. Considering how you do this is important and will depend on your specific situation.

It doesn’t need to be an expensive venture and some small touches can make a world of difference. If you need to sell your home quickly, then this is the best option for you. However, if you have more time on your hands and would like to increase the value of your home significantly you need to think about investing a larger amount of money.

Here are some ideas to add value to your home:
  • Redecorate your home

When redecorating, think about the interior as well as the exterior of your home. Giving the whole place a fresh lick of paint and decluttering your home will give a clean and spacious feel.

  • Do up your kitchen and bathroom

Your kitchen and bathroom are two very important rooms, especially to buyers who are viewing or looking at images. Upgrade them by improvements or redecorating to make them look and feel more modern and contemporary.

  • Create a parking space

Off-road parking spaces can be the deciding factor for a lot of people. If you have a front garden you can change or convert part of it into a parking space.

  • Add an ensuite

Adding another bathroom to your home is a big plus and especially to create a master bedroom. It gives a more luxurious feel and is always seen as a desirable feature.

  • Put a utility room in

Add walls to create a utility room, it allows you to hide the noise of white goods and can be a handy place for you to hide away your laundry setup.

  • Convert your basement or attic space

If you have a basement or attic, converting this space into another bedroom will help add value to your home. The more rooms a home has, the higher the value.

  • Create an open plan living area

An open plan kitchen and diner is an increasingly popular option for many people. It provides a larger communal space where more time can be spent together.

  • Spruce up your garden space

If you haven’t given your gardens some TLC in a while, it’s time to think about sprucing up the front and back garden space. Outdoor or garden spaces have become more appreciated and in very high demand since the recent pandemic lockdowns and you can add value by landscaping, adding decking or adding lighting.
