How to make your home more saleable

It seems that the housing market is finally on the up again so this could be an ideal time to prepare your home for sale. If you want to get the best price possible for your property you should take a look around it and think about how you could add value to it, and make it a more attractive prospect to buyers.

There are loads of ways to increase the value of your home with simple home improvements. Read on for our list of top tips.

Quality conversions

If you have a room in your home that is doing very little other than storing junk and gathering dust, you should consider a conversion. Converting a basement or an attic into an extra bedroom can add significant value to a home and will certainly make it more appealing to buyers.

Insulate your space, add carpets and attractive internal doors and you will start to see what kind of transformation is possible. Skylights and light tubes are also recommended to add natural light to cellars and lofts.

A lick of paint

A simple lick of fresh paint can make a big difference to the impression potential buyers get of a home when they look around. Neutral tones such as white or magnolia are the best plan, as people like to see a property as a blank canvas on which they can create their own style. So, to make your home more saleable for very little money get on your painters overalls and grab your brush and roller.

Fabulous flooring

Quality wooden flooring is another great way to make a home more attractive and desirable without incurring great cost. Bamboo flooring has a pale, natural appearance and looks great in any room or hallway, perhaps accented with a statement rug or two.

A gorgeous garden

To make the most of your property you should spruce up your garden too. Whether you have an expansive lawn or a snug patio you should make the most of this space. Do a little weeding, add some extra plants, hanging baskets and maybe a table and chairs if you don’t currently have one and viewers will see the potential of your outdoor area.


  1. I really like the information which is shared in your post.Home renovation not only increases the value of your home, but it also enhances the appeal of your home and makes it a more comfortable place to live.

  2. When it comes to a lick of paint wouldnt you agree that it can sometimes be a fairly expensive project?

    This is why I like the thought of having a feature wall in a room; instead of having to spend money on redecorating the whole room I tend to advise spending your time on just one main wall. This way you can create a focal point in the room and you wont have to spend the sort of money you would have to on a full room makeover.

    Using photographs and a few quirky pieces of art can make a huge difference, wouldn't you agree?
