DIY Projects That Add Value When You Sell A Property

When you decide to sell a property, remember there are some cost-effective and efficient ways that you can add value to your home without breaking the bank.  There are quite a few DIY projects you can undertake yourself, that can arguably add value to your home.  Here are a few projects to consider that will add value and appeal to your home when you put it on the market.

Create an eye-catching kitchen

Kitchens arguably have the biggest impact on buyers.  More so than any other room in the house.  Countertops can easily be refurbished without costing you an arm and a leg.

Modernise your kitchen cabinets

  • More often than not a potential buyer will prefer a light and bright kitchen.
  • Often the easiest way to give your cabinets a facelift is to repaint.  Change an old or dark colour with something light and bright.
  • White lightens your cabinets and often makes your kitchen look bigger.

Update your countertops

  • Granite and marble does last longer and gives a more luxurious finish, but it’s expensive.
  • Equally modern are the new Formica countertops that now come in a range of modern luxurious finishes.
  • These are less expensive and will give a lift to any kitchen.
  • The kitchen is the heart of any home so it must look appealing and inviting.  These are inexpensive upgrades you can make when you sell a property.

Guard your garage

  • Create a functional space in your garage.
  • Make this an attractive storage option and create storage solutions like (shelves or cupboards).
  • Everything should have a home.  And the finish should allow a potential buyer to store their items neatly and effectively.

Create a stylish and easy living garden and entertainment area

  • There is more emphasis than ever on functional, low maintenance solutions.
  • Entertainment is a key requirement in most SA homes.
  • But, remember a low maintenance garden and outdoor entertainment is key.
  • Create privacy with trellis or creeping plants.
  • A garden that has no watering system is a challenge.  This is a fast-growing requirement with homeowners. A watering system that allows ease of maintenance and also quick watering is always a good feature to note when you sell a property.

Up-style your bathroom

  • When you sell a property the 2nd room or rooms that will help to sell a home are the bathrooms.
  • If you currently have paintwork in your bathroom, a fresh coat of paint will work wonders.  Especially the ceilings and the inside corners.
  • Old style towel rails can be swapped out for more modern solutions.  Display a nice set of new colourful bath towels.
  • A pretty picture would no go amiss in a new modern bathroom.
  • Stylish mirrors are a great addition too.
  • Give the grout in your bathroom a good scrub and replace the silicone around the bath, basin and shower.
  • If you are desperate to cover up horrible tile designs then paint them.  But, follow the paint applications carefully and please pick a neutral colour.
