Take some time to have a good look around your home. What is it lacking right now? How and where could it be improved to give it more buyer appeal? These are the sort of questions you should ask yourself.
If that leaves you none the wiser, Bon Accord can tell you from experience that any of the following three ideas will usually make a house more valuable than it currently is:
Our living habits have evolved and it’s now the kitchen where most families assemble at the end of the working day, rather than the traditional sitting area.
Whereas in the past kitchens were solely used for cooking, nowadays they’re far more multi-purpose spaces.
Your current kitchen setup may not be able to cater for this sort of lifestyle, and as a result, feel quite outdated.
Look at getting a new kitchen fitted, with smart storage, fancy worktops and all the latest appliances, to add up to six per cent onto your home’s value.
Is there always a race for the toilet amongst family members first thing in the morning? What you need is another toilet downstairs.
If you have cupboard space underneath your stairs that’s large enough, this could be converted into an extra toilet.
A downstairs loo is useful for those with young children as it avoids having to take them upstairs every few hours. It’s also handy for those drink-fuelled house parties.
It’s the simplest suggestion of all, but believe us, a spotless, tidy home won’t go unnoticed by valuers.
Clear out all that clutter, either taking it down to the local tip or donating it to a charity shop. Everything that’s left should be neatly stored away to maximise floor space and make the place pristine.
Your garden should look equally tidy. Get a garden vacuum to suck away any leaves from your lawn, trim your hedges, pull out any weeds, and give the grass a regular cut.
Keen on a brand-new kitchen? All options are on the table at Bon Accord as we have an array of new kitchen designs, from modern to traditional. We can quote you for one here.
Compared to the 80’s and 90’s, the window industry of the 2020’s has a much-enhanced reputation, but you may still be fearful of being ‘ripped-off’…
