5 Projects That Will Add Resale Value to Your Home

25 December 2017

It’s holiday time! And what better excuse do you need to get stuck into some much-needed home improvement! Whether it’s something you’ve been wanting to do for ages, but simply haven’t had the time, or whether you’ve finally decided to put your home on the market, there are number of projects you can easily tackle on your leave that will not only give your house a fresh new look, but it’ll add value to your home too! It also means that you have the time to plan properly: draft a list of all your requirements and then determine where you can find the right tools and equipment for hire.

  1. Landscaping

Landscaping is one of the most valuable home improvements you can make. A well-landscaped garden adds to your curb appeal like you can’t believe. It’s also one of the least expensive ways of enhancing the overall value of your home – just be sure to keep things simple with a few quick and inexpensive fixes. Keep your lawn neatly trimmed and edged, make sure your bushes, trees and flowerbeds are well maintained and add vibrant colour with bright seasonal flowering plants!

  1. Front Door Replacement

A front door makes a big first impression, as it’s the first part of your home that visitors see before you invite them inside. Simple improvements, like a new coat of paint, can give your whole house a facelift. If, however, your front door cannot be salvaged and you do need to replace it, a smart move is to look through popular interior design magazines. It will help you to identify the latest front door trends for a transformation that’s right up to date.

  1. Kitchen Matters

Your kitchen – the heart of the home – can have a massive impact on your resale value. The good news is that it’s not necessary to completely gut your kitchen and replace it with modern, high-end units to realise a return. Small changes can make big differences and prove just as valuable. From sanding to staining and/or re-painting your cabinets to replacing your old appliances with new ones, you can turn your kitchen into the warm and welcoming space you’ve always imagined it could be.

  1. Outdoor Additions

Now that we’re in the height of summer, adding on a deck or patio would not only increase your living space, but it would significantly add to the value of your home. A perfect project for this time of year, it is an easy enough project to tackle on your own, if you’re feeling ambitious!

  1. Small Things

While you may be excited to get cracking with a complete kitchen revamp, don’t forget the day-to-day maintenance that you could have fallen behind on. From fixing those leaky taps to applying a new coat of paint to your home’s exterior or interior, you can increase the value of your home simply by keeping it in tip-top shape.
