When it comes to your home, first impressions count. If you’re thinking of selling a property, the decisions of potential buyers are frequently made before they’ve even stepped over the threshold. Having a house that appears neglected, unloved or just dated can have a big impact on the amount you’ll be offered or even if they’ll make an offer - after all, not many people purposely look for ‘fixer uppers’, and if they do, they’re likely to want the property for a cheap price. Many first-time buyers will be stretching the budget anyway and unwilling to consider properties that need a lot of work. Even if the wear and tear is just superficial, houses that are in need of a little TLC can signal bigger issues that haven’t been dealt with - right or wrong, that is the impression that’s given. Even if you don’t have any plans to move, giving your house a freshen up will make you fall in love with it all over again. Sometimes we just get used to the way things are, and almost stop seeing the potential. A few little tweaks and you could be seeing your home in a whole different light. But what are the essential adjustments that can make a big difference?
Does Your Home Need a Facelift?
Have A Renewal Of Your Roofline
Even if the tiles of your roof are in good condition, their appearance can be let down by cracked or damaged gutters, soffits and fascia boards, so consider either repairing and repainting or replacing with UPVC options. This subtle touch can really refresh the look of your home and also save time and money in the future, or for any potential new buyers.
Whether it's a small touch designed to add some more personality to your home, or a larger project to really make the space appealing and well-cared for, you can adjust your plan to your budget and taste. But there’s little doubt that a smart exterior will help you sell - or just rediscover your love for your home yourself. Sometimes, if we've lived there a while, we just don’t see our homes as others see them, so take a step back and try to view it with a stranger’s eyes - you’ll soon see what you need to improve.
