Invest in Your Home to Make a Profit

If you are thinking about selling you home this year, but aren’t sure where to start to maximise value, our expert team have compiled their top tips.

Follow These Top Five Tips When Investing in Your Current Property:

Stick to neutral colours. You want prospective buyers to be able to picture themselves in your home when they are checking it out. If you have a green feature wall and loads of green accessories, it can make it hard to picture their existing décor in your home. Neutral definitely doesn’t need to mean bland. Dramatic effects can be created to make impact through dark neutrals and contrasts, such as greys and blacks.

Think about energy efficiency. Buyers are looking for homes that will be efficient to run – think solar, hot water or low maintenance decks instead of extensive gardens. It is possible to save up to 49%[1] on heating costs by installing Luxaflex Duette Architella Ménage Shades on your windows – the modern look that these blinds create allows the home to also have light control and privacy throughout the day and night, with the added bonus of unrivalled energy efficiency.

Declutter your home.  Before having prospective buyers through, think about how you can add extra storage with floating shelves or shadow boxes in living areas or important zones like the kitchen and laundry. Remove personal knick knacks.

A little sprucing does not go unnoticed. Clean up the garden, cutting back shrubs and trees and removing all weeds. It can also be a good idea to include a splash of nature by the front door, in a pot plant or small garden bed, to create an inviting welcome.

Maximise living space. Indoor / outdoor space is very sought after these days so think about whether a folding arm awning or umbrella may suit your outdoor space. During open homes, extend the awning(s) to show the liveable space that is created. Try: Luxaflex Sunrain Awning which has functionality in both sun and rain, creating a useable outdoor space despite Australia’s often harsh climate.
