ARCHIVE: Top 5 home improvements that add value

Did you know that April is National Home Improvements Month? This month is run by the National Federation of Estate Agents (now known as NAEA Propertymark) and aims to provide home owners with guidance as to how they can add value to their homes by making home improvements*.

With house prices falling for the first time in almost two years according to Nationwide, making sure your house is presented as well as possible can really help sell your house for the price that you want**.

These are the top 5 home improvements that they cite as adding value to your home:

  1. Mirrors – mirrors can be an effective way of creating light in your property. By hanging mirrors opposite windows or which reflect light into darker corners, this can make a property look bigger and brighter.
  2. A pristine garden – make sure your garden is as tidy and attractive as possible. And, try to make the space appear private and secluded.
  3. Opening up space – by combining two small rooms into one, larger room this creates the feeling of open-plan living which is very popular currently.
  4. Makeover the kitchen – by giving your kitchen an overhaul, it can add value to your home. Ensure your kitchen looks attractive, hygienic and fresh.
  5. Get rid of busy wallpaper – try and keep your décor as neutral as possible which can make the house seem easier to move straight into.
