Simple fixes to increase the value of your home – part two

Last month we launched a series centred around tips to increase the value of your house.  We began the series with simple renovations that you can make to your kitchen and bathroom.  This week we share with you four general fixes that will not only benefit you currently, but will also increase the value of your home.

Here are our four suggestions:

  1. Spruce up the landscaping of your garden. A good well-kept garden will be the first aspect of your house that visitors see, and so having well maintained garden is vital in ensuring that you make a good impression.  We recommend making use of plants and shrubs that are indigenous to the area as they will reduce unnecessary watering and care.  Laying down some paving in your garden is another fantastic idea as this will enhance the attractiveness of your garden and will also be an asset during the rainy season.

  2. Upgrade the security of your home. Security is one of the most important features for re-sale value.  Not only will this upgrade prove lucrative for if you do decide to sell, but it will also benefit you and your loved ones currently! We recommend adding features like electric fencing, beams, and upgrading your perimeter fencing.  Book one of our security experts now.

 

  1. Go green! Energy savers are another great way to make your home more desirable and will save you money too! Not to mention you’ll have a nifty backup plan for when load shedding hits.  When renovating consider installing a solar panel, insulating your home to save energy, or installing a bore hole.  Book one of our expert contractors to help you with this!
  2. Paint, paint, paint! We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: painting is one of the simplest most cost-effective improvements of all. Freshly painted rooms look clean and updated – and that spells value.  Remember if you are looking to sell your house that neutrals are the safest bet as they appeal to the greatest number of people.  Book a painter.
