Thinking about selling your property sometime in the distant future?
Whether you plan to sell your home in a couple of months or maybe even a few years time, there are a number of things you can do now to help add property value and make your eventual sale much easier.
Looking to make changes to your property to help add value? The sooner you start planning renovations or minor improvements the better position you’ll be in when it comes time to sell.
Building work can take time so it’s best to get started early to allow yourself plenty of time to finish everything you want to.
Keep your eventual buyer in mind when considering property improvements. Will they want an extra bathroom or bedroom? Will an updated kitchen make the property more appealing? Also aim to keep any colour choices neutral so as not to polarise any buyers.
Get into the garden
Established gardens are an attractive property feature but they can take time to reach their full potential. If you have time before selling to prepare your property then think about your garden as soon as possible and try to plant trees and flowers that are likely to be out in full colour in the season you hope to sell in.
Get a feel for the local market
It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on your local property market so you can get a feel for the types of homes that are popular and periods where there are more buyers around.
Talk to real estate experts
You don’t need to wait until you want to sell to have a chat to local agents. A simple conversation with an agent can be invaluable as they can offer you advice that can put you on the right track when it comes to renovations and help you plan out how you want to go about selling in the future.
Your property is likely to be your biggest asset so it always pays to have a long-term plan in place to help you make the most of it.
