Are you wanting to add value to your property in the Nottingham area? These tips can help you to make sure that your property sells for the best possible price.
Kitchens and bathrooms
These are without doubt the most important rooms to potential buyers. Renovating kitchens and bathrooms can be expensive and would-be-buyers can often be put off by the cost of replacing a bathroom suite or having to redesign a kitchen. In fact a recent survey by Magnet found that 61% of buyers said that they would be willing to pay more for a property that had a kitchen that was newly refurbished or modernised.
However, upgrading your kitchen doesn’t have to be hugely expensive. Consider painting your cabinets and replacing the worktops and tiles to give your kitchen a cheap and easy makeover.
White bathroom suites are in general more popular than coloured ones but if you can’t afford to replace the suite then giving your bathroom walls a fresh coat of paint will make a big difference to the feel of the room.

It is a big decision to decide to sell your home. It means moving your family from a home that they likely love to a new and unfamiliar one. Even if you only move locally you will still be moving away from your neighbours, familiar places and friends. Behind this life changing decision there is usually a compelling reason and even then studies have shown that it still takes on average two years from first thinking about selling to actually deciding to go ahead and put your property on the market.

When it comes to buying property, the old adage "location, location, location" is still true. The most significant variable that affects a property's value is its location. Understanding the impact of location on property values is critical to making informed decisions, whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor.

We are a nation of animal lovers. Sixty-two per cent of households in the UK contain a pet. Selling your home when you have pets can present some challenges, but with a few helpful tips, you can make sure that you negate any negative ways in which your furry friends may impact potential buyers.
Up to 20% of people are allergic to our furry friends, so it is essential to take that into consideration when preparing for a viewing. If possible, try to have your pets out of the house during viewings, especially if you have dogs. This ensures that potential buyers can focus on the features of your home without distractions.
Lingering pet hair can be enough to affect many allergy sufferers, some so badly that they are unable to spend more than a few minutes in a home that contains a furry pet. Ensure that you hoover your home well before every viewing. Popping pet beds and food bowls into a cupboard is also a good way of reducing the allergens viewers will have to deal with, and it is also good practice as it will help to make a room look more spacious.
