Performing routine maintenance is the first step to maximising the sale price of your home. It may seem like a no-brainer but it’s easy to let the small things like the roof shingles get out of hand. So, take a walk around your home (inside and out) with pen and paper in hand. Look for cracked windows, loose tiles, leaky taps, smelly drains and so forth. Write down all of the things that need some TLC and get busy. A little lick of paint can go a long way!

Which Home Improvements Increase Sale Price?

The promise of a comfortable work-from-home environment can help increase sale price of your home.

  1. Home Office: Especially at the moment, with so many more people working from home, a home office is a major selling point. Re-purposing underutilised space in your home for a home office can really help to draw in serious potential buyers. 
  2. Update the Outdoor Spaces: Gardens and outdoor areas can make or break the first impression buyers get. One can usually reap great returns from simply manicuring the lawn, and planting some flowers. 
  3. The Classics (Kitchen & Bathroom): Kitchens and bathrooms are often ‘deal-breakers’ for picky buyers, and those with less experience renovating. These are expensive home improvements, but potential buyers may be willing to pay the premium to avoid the hassle of doing it themselves.

Remember Your House’s Ceiling Price

Before you take on any bigger renovation projects to increase the sale price of your home, consider the area’s price ceiling. The ceiling price of a house is the maximum price any property of similar size and age has sold for on the street. So, if you’re thinking about investing money into refurbishment, ask yourself if anyone would be willing to pay the extra cash to buy into the neighbourhood.
