Q&A: How Do I Renovate My House?

university of cape coast log ucc

According to statistics, renovating a house can increase its value by up to 20 per cent, making it one of the best ways to increase the price of a property. Remodelling a house also increases the chance of finding a buyer and getting the property sold quickly.

Here are some simple ways to remodel your house and boost its value.

1. Check for faults

If it is an old property, it is better to check for electrical faults and fix them. Also inspect the roof for leakages, the floor for cracks, broken doors and windows, old locks, and plumbing works which need to be changed. Rather tackling these problems yourself, it is best to hire a professional to sort out these issues for you.

2. Paint the house

Give your property a makeover with a fresh coat of paint to ensure it looks more appealing. Painting also removes all the marks and dirt on interior walls. Inspect each of the rooms to see what can be done to make to it more attractive to buyers. This is one of the easiest ways to renovate your house – and something you can easily do yourself.

 

3. Make some additions

Add new a source of light to bring more life to your rooms. In addition, make good use of mirrors as they enlarge the space. This is a simple, no fuss way to remodel your property and give it a fresh look.

4. Landscape your house

One of the most overlooked aspects of renovating a house is the outdoor spaces. But by adding a beautiful garden and a relaxing outdoor seating area, you are likely to receive more money for the property. Contact a professional landscaper to advise you on what type plants will be appropriate for your soil.

 

These are simple and easy steps to take when remodelling your house but if you wish to go the extra mile by building new windows and substantially renovating the rooms, we suggest speaking to an architect. If the cost of remodelling is above your current earnings, apply for a loan and work with professional contractors who can help make your dream come true. This can take several days or months to complete. Make provisions for yourself and family while your home is being redesigned.
