Increase The Value Of Your Home With These Simple Cheap Upgrades


When selling your house, you want to be able to get every last penny out of it and hope that it goes for a price higher than what you bought it to make a profit. This should be no problem as hopefully, you have made it better and added things that were not already there. The more that your house has that differs from others in the area, the more chance it has of selling for a better price. There are some simple changes and upgrades that you can make in your home to make it look more attractive and help improve the price. Find out what they are.

Break Out The Paint

Adding a lick of paint to anything makes it more attractive and more appealing to the eye so this is exactly what you need to do where suitable. It can make a room or anything look like brand new which will up the appeal of it and make your house stand out.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEWe were surprised by how much of a difference this made to our home. If we had known that earlier we wouldn’t have sold it.

Upgrade Landscaping 

This first thing that potential buyers will see when arriving at your house is the landscape and the condition that it is in and its surroundings. Keeping your lawn neat and tidy and adding a few nice flowers to add a bit of colour will give a lovely look to the landscape as the curb appeal is vital.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEYou can never underestimate the importance of landscaping, thankfully we had a lovely one which got us a few extra dollars on the sale.

Give Bathroom A Makeover

The condition that the bathroom is in is much more important than you’d think as it needs to be in excellent condition with a modern feel to it. Getting a mini-makeover by installing vanity units and a walk-in shower is very appealing to buyers.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEThere is nothing nicer than a sparkling clean and modern bathroom which we upgraded a few years before the sale, but it definitely benefitted the price. 

Outdoor Dining Area

Having an outdoor dining area with tables and chairs and a walkway is a great sight to see as new buyers can picture spending summer evenings out there. Invest in having this door as it will work for you in the long run with a good return guaranteed.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEProbably the best thing we did to our former home was installed an outdoor dining area for casual gatherings which was a key factor for the buyers investing. 

Add Crown Molding

Giving your home a makeover with some crown molding will really give it that extra bit of wow and become an attractive sight to buyers. It is a quick and inexpensive way to catch the eye and flare out the finished top edge of your interiors.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEWe didn’t think this would make much of a difference but how wrong we were, the new homeowners noticed it immediately and loved it. 

Your house will definitely have been bumped up in the price market by making these small, simple changes that will have a big impact on the overall view of the house.
