Property is a long-term investment and when you sell, you want to gain as much profit as possible. This means making changes and adaptations that not only add value but desirability as well.
You can do too muchAs you make changes, remember that there are limits to the amount people will be willing to pay for your property, in the location that it is.
Buyers looking for a half million pound property will not be looking in a street where the average value is way below this.
What changes should you make?Start with the important rooms: the kitchen and the bathroom. Well-designed, modern, practical and stylish kitchen and bathroom are the main selling point of any home.
As you sell your property, you need to suggest a lifestyle to potential buyers. Neutral décor, de-cluttering room and so on all heighten the sense of desirability. All you need is two buyers liking your property, and the asking price may start to rise.
Don’t forget the outsideFrom giving your property a face-lift to re-designing the garden so that it complements your property are all changes that add value.
Off street parking with a driveway could also add thousands on to the value, especially in an area where off-street parking is at a premium.
