Not every part of your home is created equal, and some have a quantifiably higher value than others.
At the same time, there are those unique and saleable qualities that are less easy to put a figure on, but nonetheless play a vital role in securing a buyer.
Different spaces require a different approach, so we’ve divided this blog into expert tips for:
So let’s take a look at what buyers are looking for in each of these areas. When we’re done, you’ll be able to identify the most valuable and saleable parts of your home so you can stay ahead of the market whenever you come to sell.
Hanging out with friends, curling up with Netflix, working from home in peace… Living rooms are often deal-breakers for buyers seeking that magical combination of space, light and cosiness.
So how do you create that for a lounge, dining room or study?
For some finishing touches, add some comfy textiles and a few well-chosen accessories in natural materials like ceramic, wood, stone and metal - they go with any style and elevate any room.
Kitchens are hands down the area with the greatest concentration of value, from an open-plan corner, to a separate galley, to a central domestic hub.
So it’s worth going to town on the fittings and including as many appliances as possible from respected, high-quality brands to boost the lux factor.
If you’re only going to invest in one room at your home, your kitchen is where you’re likely to achieve the single biggest uplift in value. Want to turn yours into a magnet for buyers? Call us on 01722 580059 for a friendly chat.
Although bedrooms aren’t usually the most feature-rich rooms in a home, buyers still want plenty from them. And when you create a relaxing space to escape, wind down and wake up, you’ll play right into their desires!
As a final point, remember that when it comes to getting the highest price for your home, there’s no such thing as a spare room. So give every bedroom a purpose, even if you’re not using them all.
Bathrooms are another high-value area where buyers focus on the fittings, rather than just the space, so turning up the luxury can really pay dividends.
To complete the sumptuous spa-like aesthetic, accessorise with fluffy new towels and robes to soak up any echoes, and swap that Carex bottle for a posh pump soap from the likes of Aesop or Jo Malone.
Although outside space is a supremely high-value commodity, it’s often a home’s outside appearance that provides the initial hook and sets the tone for viewings, so both have a vital role.
As the only part of your home that buyers check out before, during and after a viewing, the outside needs to stand up to scrutiny. When it looks the part, it breeds the confidence to make an offer.
