Home makeover tip. Increase Value.

Will your home makeover increase the value of your home?

How important is it that the home makeover increases the value of your house?

  • This always needs to be considered, even if you don’t plan to move for a while. Unforseen circumstances could force you to sell your house unexpectedly, so to make changes to it that may devalue it can never be a good idea
  • Structural alterations such as extensions and loft or basement conversions will usually add value to your home, but additions such as swimming pools can have the opposite effect

If the home makeover is for selling purposes…

  •  Every decision must increase the perceived value of the property – and preferably the actual value too
  • Don’t waste any money on changes just because you always planned to do them, check how high they are on the priority list for selling purposes

Here are some examples of home makeover projects that increased the value of the home:

Before – a huge dining hall, interesting, but not in keeping with the rest of the house. No-one could imagine what to do with it if they bought the house. And it was situated next to a lovely dining room.

Before – the budget for this room was limited, but we still decided the carpet had to go!

After - changing the carpet meant that the room didn't need decorating, and the only other cost was changing the curtains
