How to add value to your home

If you are considering moving home, you may want to take some action to make sure that you get the best price possible for your home, especially if you are moving up the property ladder.

There are a number of things which you can do to add value to your home, many of which don’t require an outlay of cash. For instance, litter in the street can knock the value of your home by around 12%. Just by spending some time clearing the litter from around your home, you could add value.

A new kitchen is often included on the list of desirable features by potential buyers. However, the investment in a brand new kitchen wouldn’t add sufficient value to make it worthwhile. However, you could add new taps, cupboard handles and worktops to give a fresh new look. Making sure that the kitchen is spotlessly clean will also make the home more appealing to buyers.

You could add as much as 20% to your home if you look after your garden. A garden which has been well tended indicates to potential buyers that you have cared for your home. You may also be able to add a patio or decking to the garden, so that buyers will see extra living space.

Once you have taken action to add value to your home, you could also get the best possible mortgage deal for your new home, by contacting a CeMAP qualified mortgage adviser who has knowledge of most of the lenders.
