Cream house with white windows and brown entrance doorAccording to Emoov, Swindon has been ranked as the most in-demand place to live. And why wouldn’t it be? Aside from having plenty of fun things to do, Swindon is ideally situated for a commute to Bristol, London or Reading. Its property prices are also notable for being of good value. With Swindon properties in such high demand, it’s important you know what you can do to maximise your profit, should you plan on selling up anytime soon.

Install a conservatory on your Swindon home

According to the Telegraph, a conservatory, if done correctly, can increase the value of your home by five percent. Emerald is a glazing specialist, located in Swindon, who guarantees a quality service every time, meaning a conservatory from us is certain to add value to your home. Check out proof of our stellar reputation here. Turning an old, inefficient conservatory into a versatile living space via a replacement roof may prove to be a useful selling point too.

Perform any minor repairs and redecorate

Performing any minor repairs and painting the walls, doors or any areas in need of a touch up will aid in the sale of your home in a number of ways:

  • A neutral coat of paint will make your home appear lighter and bigger
  • Painting is, generally, a good example of a low-cost investment that results in a big long-term gain
  • Fixing superficial defects will make the house appear well taken care of

The Homeowners Alliance has produced a guide containing a number of additional tips for increasing your home’s value.

But, don’t forget about the roof & doors

A shoddy looking roof is one of the first areas of your home potential buyers will see. And whilst repairing it is unlikely to increase the value of your property, potential buyers are less likely to be put off the purchase. Emerald provides a range of affordable roofline products suitable for roof repairs. The same thing can be said for entrance doors, which also play a key role determining a prospective buyer’s first thoughts about your home.

Got a loft? You should consider converting it

Loft conversions feature in a number of online sources. Apparently, they can add up to 20% to the value to your home. A guide on how to go about converting your loft is available here.

Make your home more eco-friendly

According to online sources, making your home more eco-friendly can increase your home’s value by up to 6%. An eco-friendly home may also provide you with a unique selling-point, particularly during times where sustainability is becoming of increasing importance. Plus, it’ll save you money on energy bills, whilst you’re still living there.

A list of extra home improvement solutions that add value to your home is available here.

With current demand for Swindon homes so high, there couldn’t be a better time to sell your own. So, if you are looking to sell, why not get as much as you can for it? Interested in adding value to your property? Get in touch with the expert team here at Emerald by sending us an online message.
