Q&A: How Can I Increase the Value of My Home?

Are you planning to rent or sell your property and you have a growing feeling that the property looks too old and not as nice as it used to be, and may not sell at the right price? Well, here are a few simple steps to go through to make your house look more attractive and increase its value.

Q: What should my primary focus be when I want to increase the value of my home?

A: Usually location is key when it comes to renting or buying a property. People get attracted to a house because of where the property is situated and its accessibility in terms of transportation. If the location is convenient, then the structure should be as well. The exterior of the building is what they see first, hence the need to make it look more beautiful. To increase the aesthetic value of the property, invest in quality paint colours.

Another way of making the exterior of your property look more attractive is by trimming the trees and the hedges. Unkempt bushes and trees are likely to cover the structure and this will prevent interested buyers from seeing its real beauty.

As you walk into the building, be mindful of what they will see when they enter the property. If the paint is peeling, add a fresh coat of paint. As General Manager of City Supply Carl Kharter puts it, “You can apply any colour to the building but the two most important things to look out for is the brand and the pigment.”

What is the state of the living room? Is it tidy? Tidy up or create space in the house and add some value to your home. Make sure it looks ready to be occupied by anyone. Dark rooms do not show how spacious a room is and that is why lighting is essential. Replace old bulbs with new ones. Dirty windows make your room darker, hence the need to wash or replace them.

Also ensure that every maintenance work has been taken care of before you put the property on the market for rent or for sale.

Q: How do the steps above increase the value of your house?

A: People looking to buy or rent out properties always look out for ways of making homeowners reduce the price of a property. The state of the property is one of the elements they use to insist on making you reduce the price. Ensure the house is in top shape before you put it up for sale or rent!
