When the time comes to sell your home, one main concern that you may have is how to get the most for the property. Increasing the value in turn increases your possible profits, meaning that you can put this money into making your next purchase.

But how can you improve the value in your home? The answer is, plenty of ways.

They don’t all have to break the bank, in fact some may not cost more than just a new coat of paint. Although, if you do have money that you can put into the property then there is a good chance that you will see a return in your selling price.

The front garden

Whilst, in the grand scheme of things, your front garden may not seem the most important part of your house; when it comes to selling a scruffy lawn may cause a negative impression on the rest of your house. Especially since it is the first thing that prospective buyers will see.

Making some improvements, no matter if they are small, to your front garden can see an increase in what is known as the ‘kerb appeal’ of your property and perhaps give those prospective buyers a good first impression to carry through the rest of the house.

A new kitchen or bathroom

If you think that your kitchen or bathroom is looking a bit dated then chances are your buyers will think that too. If you can afford it then why not pop some money into renovating and improving these two much used rooms and making them a modern and up to date space that will really appeal.

Convert and extend

A great way to add real value into your property is to build an extension, or convert an existing space to create more bedrooms or perhaps a playroom for the house.

Conservatories are a popular way to extend a house, although you will need to ensure that you invest in a high quality model if you do decide to go ahead with this.

Another option is to convert a loft space into an extra bedroom, if you can, or perhaps change a garage into a utility room or playroom if it is attached to your house.

Extensions and conversions can sometimes add up to 10% on the asking price of your property, so if you have the initial money to invest this is a great way to make some profit.


One of the most simple things that you can do to up the price of your home is to repaint and redecorate. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate overhaul, a simple magnolia paint will do fine; in fact this will give a buyer the chance to start with a blank canvas when planning how they would like the property to look.

Don’t forget about the front door and windows when you are painting. These all lend to the first impressions factor and are often parts of the home that look the most tired.
