Right now you probably can’t imagine ever selling your beloved home, especially if you’ve grown quite attached over the years.
But you never know what the future holds. It pays to be prepared in case you do one day crave a change of scenery or choose to move for any number of reasons.
Should this come to pass, you definitely want to sell your home for the highest price, which means it might be time for a little “fixer upper”. Not only will this boost the value of your home, it will also improve your comfort while living there (regardless of whether you eventually move or not).
Invest in an automated garage door
Never underestimate the benefits of having an automated garage door, and the value it adds to your property. These doors are popular because they give residents easy access to their homes with the simple push of a button. Drive in and out of your garage with ease, while steering clear of the rain and wind in winter, and the heat in summer. There’s also the added benefit of avoiding the muscle strain that comes with manually lifting a door. Not to mention, extra security – since there’s no need to loiter around in the dark as you fumble around for your keys, feeling vulnerable and exposed.
Not only are automated garage doors practical, they look good too, “adding a modern touch to your home” according to Tom, a specialist from A1 automate that has been working with garage doors in Sydney for more than 10 years. You can choose from an array of colours and styles, to suit your personality and the decor of your home.
Choose quality shutters that add style, security and insulation
Shutters and roller blinds add elegance and sophistication to any room, while serving a practical function as well. Not only do they block out excess light and heat in the summer, they also provide thermal insulation for your home in the winter, which is “a major selling point for anyone looking to buy a new home” according to Ray that sells and installs shutters and roller blinds in Campbelltown/Narellan Area in South-Western Sydney for more than 20 years. They will boost you home value whether they’re a contemporary design, or opting for a more traditional and cosy vibe.
Consider renovating your kitchen
Did you know that kitchen renovations offer the best return if you choose to sell your home? Definitely a worthy investment! After all, this could be the one room in the house where the entire family meets to spend quality time and enjoy good food. Fitting out a custom made kitchen means you can choose where everything goes – optimising storage space and selecting textures, colours and materials that blend in perfectly with the surrounding environment.
These tips will go a long way to adding value to your home. In fact, there’s a good chance you may never want to leave, after boosting the comfort and style of your home. A welcome risk!
