3 Things To Improve Your Home For Future Selling

Hey Cats,

So you just bought your first house and you either jumped on the property ladder for it to be your forever home or you eventually want to move somewhere bigger when the family grows and you want to make sure that your house is in the best possible shape not only for you to live in but also to make it more attractive to future buyers. Here are three things you should get checked out and make sure they are improved.

If you managed to grab a steal of a house because it needed a lot of updating then windows may seem like a pricey place to start but they can make a huge impact. Click here for all your window needs but remember that good windows can make a huge difference in the heat of your home and keeping it insulated so in the long run will end up saving you so much more money than you spend on them. Big open windows can bring lots of light into the room making your home more welcoming, a lot of houses will already be double glazed but may just need the front and back doors changing.

The roof may also need looking at because lets face it when we go to look around a house we aren't climbing a ladder to ask about it. Make sure you ask questions but when you are doing your repairs it is wise to get a professional roofer to have a look if you need any work doing like  It is best to do this ahead of time instead of having to call a roofer in an emergency as it will give you a chance to find out the best price and use the best people. Making sure the roof is safe and well insulated can be a huge selling factor later and add value to your property.

Sometimes people forget that the garden is just as important part of the home as any of the rooms. Whether your garden is huge or tiny making sure you make it look inviting, tidy and clean can make a dramatic difference to any visitors. You don't have to spend a fortune by landscaping it just make sure you look after any grass, plant some pretty flowers and keep any slabs clean. I love plating winter pansies in when it is cold to add a splash of colour to grey days. When it comes to selling your house if your garden looks well looked after front and back it will reflect well on your sales.
