Of course, there’s no such thing as the perfect home. You can always be doing something that will improve it and increase its valuation. It’s just a case of deciding what it’s best to do.
If there’s no value in doing something, it should be left alone as there are some ‘improvements’ that can actually cause more harm than good to the resale price of a house.
Reducing the number of bedrooms
You will hardly ever see the cost of a e.g. 4-bed house rise after it has been reduced to a 3-bed house.
When left with an empty bedroom, some people decide to knock through the space to make another area of the building larger, but this rarely pays off in the long-term.
Always try to keep any spare bedrooms and just temporarily put them to some other form of use, rather than ditch them completely.
New carpeting feels lovely on the feet, and the smell from it can make a house feel new again, but too much of it can pose a problem.
A full re-carpeting of a property is a gamble as you have to consider that your choice of carpet may not be liked by others, which could cause an issue when selling.
Some buyers will not be too keen on spending a fortune on re-flooring an entire house, so re-carpet sparingly, instead of going all in with it.
Taking out a garden lawn
Gardens are highly prized after the pandemic, so it’s probably not a good idea to be losing any bit of your outdoor space right now, including your lawn.
We know that maintaining a lawn can be hard work for some during the summer months, but all that mowing and manicuring is worth the effort.
You could get away with replacing your natural lawn with an artificial lawn if it’s too much for you as synthetic grass is very realistic.
