The answer is pretty simple, as it is always with the most important things in life: follow the latest trends in property trading. At present, that would be investing in technological advancements in your home. But, on the other hand, what you can never fail with increasing the value of your property are the traditional ways in this process that exist for many years. We are going to provide the most well-known suggestions and introduce you to the current situation.
Start from the Very Beginning
It is best to start with the exterior and entrance cleaning since the first impression is always the most important. The lawn should look attractive. Prune back weather-worn bushes and hedges as well as any branches that you can reach. Move away from a yard all unnecessary things, repair and paint the fence, if you have one. Make the façade tidy by washing it or applying a new color.
Clean the House from Inside
Clean and wipe the whole interior with the special attention to the kitchen and bathroom, because usually the most impurities can be found there. You can throw out all the daily garbage, remove all visible stains, wipe mildew and the dust, wash the windows, and take good care of bugs and rodents (especially in the basements and garages).
Remove All the Mess
The mess accumulated over the years certainly will never leave a positive impression of your property. Immediately throw away all useless things. If you don’t want to get rid of the objects that are valuable for you, sort them out in uniform boxes and leave in the garage or storage room. Messy look of the rooms can also visually reduce the space that would directly and negatively affect the value of your property. Minimize the furniture, because the overcrowded rooms may adversely affect the available space to look even smaller.
Paint the Walls
For instance, if you have wallpapers on the walls, look to remove them and to paint the walls in neutral and warm colors. Make sure to do all the other repairs in the same way, including electricity installations and water pipes.
Refresh Your Floorings
Sometimes completely changing all the floors can also be a big expense, so ensure to at least refresh the old ones. Wipe and carefully clean the floors made of wood. Replace individual broken tiles or floorboards and refill their joints to get a new glow.
Modernize Your Home
Installing new devices and using special materials isn’t just a matter of a temporary tendency. On the contrary, everything is pointing out that this should be the best investment if you are trying to boost your home’s value in the market. Apparently, the revenue from a smart home market is only expected to grow by 20% in the period 2018-2022 when Australia is concerned. The reasons for such high increase lie in the fact that all generations are more than interested in purchasing smart homes. Millennials want such homes due to comfort; the Boomers see it as an excellent opportunity to add value, while the biggest owners of smart technologies are seniors over 60 years old. Therefore, deciding to smarten up your home over adding a pool or a patio will pay off greatly.
Today’s most popular enhancements are the smart security system, lighting, and thermostats and built-in speakers.
Make Your Garage Smart
A garage is always an object of desire for the buyers, and if it is automated, even better. Automatic European garage doors can be a real deal-breaker. The reason for this may be in the fact that it makes the home more energy efficient. Besides, a lot of people with home jobs convert their garages into a home office, so a good-looking, quality garage door is what they are looking for. As well as that, the new generation of garage doors comes across as more secure than their predecessors.
