If you’re planning to sell your house soon in Consett, then you’ll be looking for quick ways to increase its value, so you can get the largest return on investment possible. Fortunately, many of these ways to add value can be done yourself.

Spring is one of the best times of year to sell your home. The sun is starting to shine again, the Easter holidays allow prospective buyers to attend viewing and finding a home at this time of year may mean buyers may be able to complete in time for summer.

However, with Spring now in full swing, the clock is ticking to get those much-needed DIY tasks done, so you can get your house on the market at a higher price. This article can help. Grab a set of tools from leading brands like Milwaukee and try our tips below to get started today.

Add storage 

Whether it’s a growing family moving in or downsizers, they’ll need plenty of storage for their belongings. That’s why adding more storage to your home is a great way to add value. Try to fill unused and awkward spaces to get the most out of your home. Examples of this could be floating shelves on empty walls or fitting storage solutions like cupboards under your stairs.

Modernise your kitchen 

Although a full kitchen renovation may not be possible, there are many other ways to upgrade your kitchen. This is one of the more important rooms in the home and updating it can add up to 15% to the value of the property. Some of the easiest – and cheapest – ways to do this include: 

  • Replacing worn cabinet doors.
  • Paint walls to cover up grease splatter and make them look more modern.
  • Fit new flooring.
  • Upgrade light shades. 

Update your front door 

When someone views your house, the door will be one of the first features they’ll judge. That’s why making sure it looks great is a must. Depending on your budget and DIY ability, you can either replace the door entirely or just give it a new lease of life with paint. 

Do some gardening 

Although the house itself will be the main selling point, the gardens are an added incentive to the property. If you can make it look wonderful, then it will improve the overall image of the house. Plus, a well-kept garden will make the grounds of your house appear larger which may also help to add value.

Many of these tasks can be taken on by DIY novices but will go a long way in making your home more attractive to potential buyers. This could help you get an exceptional offer on your house when you sell it.
