The first thing you need to do is scan for any major pitfalls. Forget the ugly wallpaper that’s always been in the guest room. You need to make sure that this home serves its basic function as a home. It may be worth hiring a home inspector, as they’ll know exactly what to look for. Faults in the electricals and insulation are the biggest things which can bring down the value of a home. Other fundamental areas like the plumbing shouldn’t be ignored. Getting these jobs out of the way first will also help you draw up a more accurate budget for the whole project. You may have to call in services like Restorationeze to take care of water damage. These aren’t cheap, so make sure you know what you have to spend.
Next up, try to do whatever you can to increase broadband speed. A home’s internet access is now being dubbed the fourth utility, along with gas, water and electricity. Broadband speed is already a big addition a lot of people consider when selling. This is only going to become more and more prevalent, so make sure your broadband keeps up with standards. Look around for superfast options. These make use of cable and fibre optics, and aim to give users the smoothest experience possible. If your area has poor reception, then consider a satellite broadband option. This will involve fitting a dish to your roof, so make sure you do all your budgeting beforehand. There are other, simpler steps you can take to improve the Wi-Fi in your home.

Finally, spend some time on the garden. This isn’t going to be at the very top of many house hunter’s lists. However, if you looked around a home and saw that the garden was grossly neglected, you’d be pretty turned off buying it wouldn’t you? Having a feature in the garden can often be the tipping point for people looking to buy. You might want to have it landscaped to have a sunken area of the turf, and buy a fire pit. Or, if you think your home will attract families, set up a climbing frame or treehouse for the kids. A focal point as simple as a modest statue may be enough to bump up the value of your home.
There you have some of the most important tips to increasing the overall value of a property. The work doesn’t stop there though! There are a variety of other things you can utilise in order to improve the value of your home. Keep working at it, and you’ll get the sale you want!
