If you’re looking to sell your property, you naturally want to get the best price that you can.

There are lots of ways to add value to your property, but many of those come at a great cost to yourself, which you won’t recoup until your property sells.

But there are a number of ways you can add value to your Scunthorpe home, without investing too much money. 

Redecorate and repair 

Paintwork and wallpaper fade slowly over time, so you may be used to it looking the way it does and not have really noticed that it could do with a lick of paint.

Redecorating your house can give it a much needed lift, without costing too much.

Bright, neutral colours are best, as this gives a blank canvas for your prospective buyer to use their own imagination when viewing your property. 

Similarly, there are a number of minor repairs you can carry out for relatively little cost. Sticking doors, leaky taps and wobbly shelves are all things that can put off a prospective buyer. However, these can all be fixed at a low cost and in an afternoon. 

Brighten and declutter 

A dark, cluttered room is a real turnoff for potential buyers so make sure all your unused clutter is stored away, keeping each room neat, tidy and spacious.

Additionally, your rooms can be brightened by ensuring curtains and blinds are fully opened and windows are freshly cleaned. You should also make sure your bulbs are all bright, energy saving bulbs and that any lamp shades used are not blocking out too much light.  

Bi-fold doors or French doors can also be installed at relatively low cost and these can really open out your space and create a bright, airy feel in your home. 

Put unused rooms to use 

If you have a spare room that’s currently housing your cross trainer that you never use as well as your last five years’ summer wardrobe, make sure this room gets a bit of TLC.

Tidy away clutter and create an additional space.

Either dress it up as an additional bedroom with a spare bed or futon and add some cheap but attractive furniture to finish the look.
