What should you steer clear of?
Costly, time consuming and stressful. Most often it’s the cosmetic changes that have the biggest impact on price.
Expensive furnishings and appliances
Unless you’re selling a high end property, it’s not necessary to invest in top of the line appliances and designer furnishings. They are unlikely to add more value than their standard counterparts.
One-off designs and interesting features
While colour and interesting design choices may appeal to your personal taste, they can limit your pool of buyers. Add interest through soft furnishings, which will move with you and that the buyer won’t have to live with.
Expensive and time consuming to maintain, pools are a turn-off for many buyers. Spend your money investing in an area of the home that will appeal to a greater range of people, like the kitchen.
