Adding Value To your Property: Increase The Value Of Your Property

If you are planning on selling your home, here are some ideas that you can implement that will increase the value of your property.
1. Quality plumbing significantly increases the value of a property. Replace or repair broken pipelines, blocked gutter lines, seepage and leaky faucets.
2. Make sure the electrical wiring in the house is in working order; have extra switches placed at convenient locations.
3. Driveways should be hassle-free; paved lawns, using terracotta tiles or natural stone, are long lasting and easy to maintain.
4. Practical home extensions that add space within the house are ad added advantage. Extend kitchens if possible to include a pantry, and if your bathrooms are small, extend them to provide larger shower areas.
5. Revamp the kitchens with quality fittings and fixtures including cabinets, floor tiles, granite counter tops, large sinks, and rust-proof taps etc.
6. Install grills outside the windows (if not already in place); this will make the property more secure.
7. Introduce eco-friendly elements such as heat insulated roof. Superimposing bricks on to the property's exterior will cool the house and eliminate the need to repaint. These will be good selling points as they help reduce the future owner's electricity bill.
8. If you have space at the back, construct a servant's quarter with a bathroom. This is something most people look for when buying a house. Just make sure you do not violate the area's bylaws.
