During the recession, all people are interested in is saving money. If you’re hoping to sell your house, this isn’t exactly great news. The property market is in a massive slump and it’s incredibly difficult for those trying to sell their homes to get the amount they’re hoping for, let alone their rock bottom lowest price.
People want to know that they’re getting good value for money. So if there are things you can do around your house to increase its appeal, it’s a good idea to do everything you can in order to make this happen. This could be anything, from adding a lick of paint around that back room that’s been looking a bit dingy to throwing in some of the furniture you’re not so keen on keeping any more. And if you can incorporate your ideas with ways that will show any prospective buyers they can save even more money as time goes by, you could see far better offers rolling in.
Many of the best tips are to do with various ways by which to make your home more energy efficient. Things like insulating your loft, which is where many homes lose as much as 75 per cent of heating energy due to poor insulation, can make a massive difference. We all know that heating costs can escalate during the colder months, so knowing there’s an extra helping of insulation could really put the minds of your prospective buyers at rest.
There are many other ways you can improve your chances of a good sell further. For example, upgrading your boiler saves buyers the expense and means they’re aware that they won’t need to replace it again for some time. What’s more, a new boiler is incredibly efficient, so hot water and central heating will both be generated faster – thus giving them a chance to save yet more money. You can also make your boiler’s efficiency even greater by fitting it with a British Standard boiler ‘jacket’, which can reduce heat loss by as much as 75 per cent – a significant amount in the eyes of a prospective buyer.
These are just some of the ways by which you can increase your home’s value when you’re trying to sell.
