Whether you’re looking to sell your home in the near future or simply doing your research, it’s important to be prepared when it comes to adding value to the property. Larger investments can take time to complete so you’ll need to consider the bigger picture and plan ahead accordingly.
Here are four of the most effective ways you can invest in your property if you’re looking to add value to its asking price – and the best part is we can help you out with all of them.
Extend into a conservatory or orangery
Although extending your home into a conservatory or orangery might seem like a monumental cash investment, doing so has the potential to add serious value to the property. In fact, according to various market experts, a conservatory has the potential to add 5-10% to your home valuation.
A conservatory or orangery will instantly add a significant amount of space to the property – a hot commodity feature when buyers start browsing their options.
Repair and strengthen the roof
If you skipped past the point above because you’re already the proud owner of a conservatory or orangery, you might want to think about giving its roof some TLC. Repairing the main roof of your home is an effective way to add value to the property but don’t overlook your conservatory roof.
A solid conservatory roof replacement will neaten up the look of your home exterior, improve security and also boost thermal efficiency to keep heat in and utility costs down.
Replacing roofline components such as guttering, fascias and soffits is also a great way to not only refresh the finish of your home but also extend its lifespan.
Install new double-glazed windows (or replace old ones)
If you’re looking to sell a property that is more mature, installing new double-glazing – or replacing old or damaged double-glazing that is already there – will effectively update the place in more ways than one.
Not only will brand-new windows look appealing to potential buyers, they also bring with them the added reassurance of increased security, sound control and thermal efficiency.
Double-glazed windows also help keep damp at bay, which adds another positive tick to the list when it comes to increasing the value of your home.
Modernise your windows and doors
As well as refreshing your double-glazing, we would also recommend looking into replacing your windows and doors with more contemporary options if you’re wanting to add value to the price of your home.
Your options here include things like casement windows and bifold doors – both super popular trends within the world of interior design and home improvement right now.
Composite doors and turn tilt windows are other options to consider when deciding how you want to make your property most appealing to the modern-day buyer.
