A quick guide on how to increase the value of your home for sale

You’ve just decided to sell your house and don’t know what to start with? We at Goodchilds Telford might have some great ideas for you. Let’s be honest, every estate and letting agent, buyer, and seller believe that the price is the main factor that drives all sales. So, having this in mind it’s totally normal to ask yourself the question “how much is my house worth?” and “if I have one or more properties for sale-is there any way to boost their price?” Well, actually there is. There is not only one, but a couple of possible improvements that all home estate agents consider important and even determinant:

1. Good looking facade and well-kept garden.

 We all know – there is nothing more important than a good first impression. Before visiting a home, your potential buyers have probably seen some pretty good photos of many different properties for sale. The fact that they choose to see your house gives you a big advantage over the others. And in order to impress your buyers and to meet their expectations the least that you can do is to take care of your garden and the entire look of your property, making it look nice and beautiful. Many studies prove that your move might increase the price of your home even up to £2000.

2. Cozy and friendly kitchen

The kitchen along with the living room are the places where we spend most of our time when we are at home. When entering into a modern, friendly kitchen, you usually get a nice warm feeling that might potentially inspire you to buy. Of course, not everyone can afford to get their kitchen fully remodeled, but it is definitely worth it to discuss some small improvements and changes with your local estate agent in order to get a better picture for the price you can get.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

3. Free up space when needed

No matter of the price all buyers are searching for the same things when looking at properties for sale – good-looking design, friendly and eye-catching atmosphere. Nobody likes small, dark premises and houses with no space inside. So, if you don’t have plenty of space in your property, you should be ready to get rid of some furniture, even repaint the walls – basically to do everything to let more light inside and to make the rooms look bigger.

4. Additional bathrooms and other facilities​​​​​​​

Definitely not surprising, yet advantageous – if you have more than one bathroom, it automatically raises the price of your property. Especially if you have a bigger hou​​​​​​​se, the second bathroom is a must. In view of this fact you can always think of a way to reconstruct and add a second restroom in your house.​​​​​​​

There are a lot of other small improvements like those ones that can make a big difference, having a good impact on the price of your home. You can always ask your local estate agent for an additional creative advice that will fit your budget. We, at Goodchilds Telford, will be also more than happy to welcome you to our local estate agency office in Wellington, Telford and to have a nice chat about the potential of your property.​​​​​​​
