Are you looking for new ways to make some extra money? It might surprise you to learn that you probably already own the greatest asset you need to do this, your home. If you’re keen to get some extra money to your name the best way to do it is by spending time and yes money, investing in your home. By making changes to your home, you can ensure that it increases in value and when you sell, you’ll see a massive return on your investment.
To do this, you need to know the best ways to add a lot of value to your property. There are a few areas that you need to focus on here, and we’re going to help you pinpoint them to ensure you don’t waste money in the wrong areas.
Let’s start off in the kitchen where changes you make could add as much as twenty percent onto the asking value of the home. But what changes should you be making here? Well, first, let’s think about tech and equipment? Are either in your kitchen looking a little out of date and behind the times? If you have a hob that looks like it’s from the 70’s and a fridge that looks like it came from a second-hand shop, it’s time to upgrade.
We know what you’re thinking here. When I move, I’ll take that fridge/freezer unit with me. It doesn’t matter because it’s not about what’s going to be left but what they see when they walk around your home. Remember, you’re selling the homebuyers dream and anything that adds to that idea is worth considering.
Aside from new tech and equipment, you may also want to consider adding a breakfast island or bar. Stylish and stunning a feature like this could be just what you need to bring your kitchen together.
Next, let’s think about the bathroom, and once again it’s about pinpointing the features that look out of place and out of style. A big give away is a corner tub. Corner tubs used to be space savers. Now, they’re just seen as dull and ordinary.
You either want a standing tub, as seen in the image above or no tub at all. Don’t forget, removing the tub is going to make your bathroom look a lot bigger and provide space for something like a larger shower unit. This is going to be appealing to a lot of young working professionals and may add at least a few thousand onto the asking value of your home. You can learn more about what features to add and what changes to make to add value in a home renovation ebook. This will provide plenty of the details that you need to ensure that you add a lot of value and maybe a few extra zeros to the asking price of your home.
Of course, if you really want to add value to your home, what you’re looking at is an extension. This can be costly so you will need to budget effectively and make sure the change is worth the added value. Conservatories, kitchen extensions and third floors are all very popular. It’s just about finding the right service to complete the job that you want.
Good luck adding a little extra value to your property and going for gold with your home.
