If lockdown has made you reconsider how suitable your current property is for your lifestyle, you might be among those looking to move somewhere new later in 2020. If you are already a homeowner then you’ll undoubtedly want to get the best possible price for your home.
We all know that spending a little time doing odd jobs around the home can help to make it more attractive to prospective buyers, but the Liverpool Echo recently shared some of the most effective ways to boost the value of your abode.
At the top of the list is updating your doors. A lot is often said about having a presentable front door, but you want that good impression to last once people step inside your home (either virtually or in real life).
In addition to sprucing up your front door, and possibly replacing it if it’s looking particularly scruffy, consider how new laminate door sets could help ensure prospective buyers see your home in a positive light once they’re inside too.
You shouldn’t neglect your windows either, according to the newspaper, with potential buyers likely to not only be concerned about the state of your current glazing, but also its energy efficiency.
If you do decide to undertake a DIY project, such as replacing your internal doors, make sure that you take the time to plan what you need to do. As we recently explained, putting together a plan will not only allow you to consider whether your DIY skills are up to the task, but will also mean that you have the right tools to hand when you get started.
This will make the whole process a lot quicker. If you’re replacing doors, it can be handy to have another person around to help you ensure that you hang them level.
