How to increase property value

Selling a house is one of the most important decisions of your life, and if you’re looking to add value to your current property, there are many things you can do that will bump up the price tag. 

Here are some of the best ways to add value to your home. 

Convert your dingy basement 

Transforming your basement into a bedroom or living space can boost your properties value by 30%. It’s one of the least complex transformations to make as you don’t need planning permission or need to make any major changes as you would if you were to convert a loft. However, it is useful to have a professional come and look to see if everything is in tip-top shape. 

Clear out your loft! 

Converting your loft into a bedroom or chill-out space can up your properties value by 15%, especially if it includes an en-suite bathroom. Most lofts can be converted without planning permission, but it’s better if you get a professional to come and have a look. The last thing you want is to fall through the floor when you’re sleeping! 

Replace your floor 

Replacing your old floor with something more ‘high-end’, can increase your properties value. So, get rid of your old cream carpet and instead, replace your floor with hardwood. Solid wood, walnut and engineered are fabulous floors, especially if they are laid in herringbone or chevron style. If you can’t afford solid wood, choose vinyl flooring for something that looks exactly like wood. It’s great for family homes with its water-resistant properties. 

Conservatories 

Conservatories are great for those family get-togethers and snuggles on the sofa. They are also great for adding value to your property too! The biggest aspect of a conservatory will be the glass, so make sure you explore your options wisely. Double glazing is a great choice to boost your properties value. But if you want to go the extra mile, opt-in for solar control glass or self-cleaning glass. 

Give your garden a new life! 

Gardens are a great way to increase your properties value, and if you live in a city where space is limited, you need to make the most of it especially if you are planning to sell. Building a wooden deck or patio is a great way to add to your property value. Not only does it add more room for entertaining, but it also completes your home. 

We hope these conversions will help you add some value to your property! Let us know in the comments below if you have any tips.
