If you’re thinking about selling your home, then it’s only right that you’re considering how to get the best possible value for it. Selling a home can be difficult and, unless you sell to an online agent like House Network, it can also be a lengthy process; especially if you’re part of a chain. In this post, we take a detailed look at effective ways that can help you improve the value of your home. 


Keep it Simple: Clean and Tidy 

This may sound a little basic, but you’d be surprised how many people overlook it. Simply keeping your home incredibly clean and tidy can make it more appealing and increase its value. 

This can be incredibly difficult if you have children and work full time, but it’s essential if you want to get the best possible value for your home. There are other simple tricks that make your home more appealing, too. Cook fresh bread if you have a viewing, light candles at night and ensure all windows and blinds are open during the day. All of these low cost ideas are perfect if you have a low budget.

Spend Money to Make Money: Renovate 

If you have a slightly larger budget and aren’t looking for an immediate sale, then a little bit of renovation work before your home goes on the market can go a long way towards adding value. 

The bathroom and the kitchen in particular can add a great amount of value to a home, so even if you spend a large amount of money on the renovations, you’re likely to earn the money back in the sale. Just be careful with this though, as it’s easy to get carried away. Ask a local estate agent to ensure it is a cost effective renovation.
