The housing market has slowed to a near standstill over the past 3-4 years as a result of the global recession leaving many homeowners living in properties they may no longer wish to reside. There is only so long that you can leave the For Sale sign up and continue to pay estate agents fees for the privilege of doing so before deciding to give up and stay where you are, whether you like it or not.
But as the saying goes, God loves a trier! Though selling a property in the current climate may seem a daunting and difficult task, it is not an impossible one. However, in order to do so you may need to invest in your home to attract the attention of buyers and the resale price you are looking for.
When it comes to deciding which home improvements to employ you really are spoilt for choice. If you only have a small budget to play with then try giving the interior of your home a fresh new look by repainting key rooms in your household. A new coat of paint or a brand roll of wallpaper can completely transform the aesthetics of a room and give it whole new aesthetic appeal.
Anyone on a medium budget could try replacing any old furniture they have as although you may take it with you to your new residence once a sale has been secured, it will not go unnoticed by house hunters when they visit your property.
Research has proven that the installation of a conservatory can boost the resale value of a property by anything up to as much as 15 per cent. Yes, they will not come cheap, but when you factor how profitable they can be when your house is sold, it makes good financial sense to give them serious consideration.
A conservatory is certain to impress buyers as it provides them with an extra place where they can enjoy home living. Sight of it may fill their minds with an abundance of ideas in terms of its utilisation and could be the key feature that helps clinch their interest and eventual investment.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again with a brand new conservatory.
