6 Easy Steps to Increase Your Property’s Value

We want to show you 6 easy steps to increase your property’s value without having to spend a lot of money. If you’ve been thinking about selling your house at some point in the near future, you’ll want to start getting ready as soon as possible. 

With interest rates near zero, the economy pumped up with massive amounts of stimulus and the virus all but eradicated from our shores, bullishness has returned to the housing market as prices have started to rise. 

Even in a bullish market, there is a lot you can do to add even more value to your property before it goes on the market.

Step 1 – External Wall Repair and Painting

Properties that appear dilapidated, old, or ugly just won’t make the cut.

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to make your home look fresh, modern and more universally appealing.

Step 2 – Upgrade Doors and Windows

New doors or windows make your home more energy efficient and can lead to more affordable household running costs.


Step 3 – Landscraping and Yard Lighting

Investing in new soil, rocks, shrubs, ground cover, trees, and mulch can help transform your yard; making it appear fresh and inviting. 

Night lighting can create a modern, chic look for your garden.

Step 4 – Kitchen Upgrades

You don’t need to completely renovate the kitchen, but adding new handles and appliances are easy to increase the liveability of the kitchen.



Step 5 – Internal Lighting Fixtures

If you have old-fashioned hanging lights, it’s probably time for an upgrade.

Down-lights look good in most environments and using energy efficient.

Step 6 – Organising

If you’re going to hold inspections whilst still living in the property, be sure to organise all clutter.

Remove all personal belongings, such as family photos and get storage boxes for anything that doesn’t fit neatly into cupboards. Neatness is everything!
