Adding value to your home – top tips
For homeowners looking to increase the value of their house or flat, making changes like renovations or adding a room can be a great idea. But it is also important to know that some improvements designed to boost your home’s value can require a lot of time and money.
Three frequent questions about adding value to your house or flat
Homeowners often ask us about whether changes to their properties might add value, and when we chat with them, these are the three top questions we usually hear:
✅ Do I need to make any value-adding changes to my home before selling?
You don’t have to, and it’s possible to sell your home as is without making any changes. But some homeowners are willing to invest some time and money to make either cosmetic or more structural improvements to their houses or flats, knowing that they’ll get a good return on investment as it’ll improve the value of their home.
✅ Will I need a very large budget to update my home and add value to it?
Not at all, and the amount of money that you might end up spending on changes to your house or flat to increase its value will depend entirely on the type of project you do. Some relatively simple rewiring might not cost very much, whereas adding an extension such as a new room or a garage could require significantly more expenditure.
✅ Is adding value to my home a time-consuming process?
It doesn’t have to be. Some projects can require several weeks or longer to complete, such as completely renovating a kitchen or bathroom, but the benefit of investing that time is that you’ll add great value to your home. Other changes, like painting or tidying the garden, can be done on a much quicker schedule.
