How can I improve my home on a budget?

Home improvements has been a very popular topic of discussion throughout the last year. If you’re getting ready to sell your house in the coming months, the updates listed below can help to encourage more viewings and speed up the completion of your sale.

You probably don't want to spend a huge amount on decorating a home that you’re going to sell soon, so here are some handy ways of decorating your house on a budget.

1. Redecorating

Repainting is usually one of the quickest and cheapest ways that you can get a house ready to be sold. It's one of the first things people think about when they talk about redecorating, especially when they’ve been wondering “how can I sell my house fast?”. Updating each of your rooms and old-looking cabinets with a fresh coat of paint can go a long way towards improving the initial wow factor that your home offers to potential viewers. Feature walls are also a popular choice, with a fresh colour really modernising a house, preparing it for sale.

Replacing any old lampshades with new ones also goes a long way to giving potential buyers an excellent first impression as they enter your home, letting you pick some low-cost ones that look effective and make a big difference.

These little changes won’t cost you a huge amount of money or take much time at all, but they will help to make your home appeal more to buyers. If you're advertising your property online, you will also get more interested viewers quicker.

2. Upgrade your bathrooms

Bathrooms are a key feature of any house, and often is a room that can sway potential buyers one way or another. Replacing any outdated colour schemes like avocado green suites, with a light and neutral colour like white will make the bathroom appear bigger and cleaner, which will be a huge plus for any viewer. A new mirror can help to do the same thing.

Another area to look at is the lighting in the room. If there isn't a window, adding a good-sized light in the centre of the room will help to brighten the room up more. Finally, replace any leaky or cracked tiles to give your bathroom a well-polished look.

3. Tidy up the garden

Doing a bit of general gardening and getting rid of weeds, trimming the grass or overgrown patches, and adding a bit of colour with some flowery plants can make your garden look much more desirable - gardens are a great addition to any home, so make sure that you utilise it to speed up your sale.

You will probably take a couple of pictures of the garden when you promote your home online; where you can, try to take them when your garden gets the most sunlight in the day to ensure it's looking its best.

4. Declutter

Spending some time decluttering your home will make it look more spacious for your potential buyers. With less of your belongings in sight, it lets your viewers more easily imagine themselves living in the house, increasing the chances of them wanting to put in an offer with you.

Look at the house one room at a time and consider what you can get rid of, which will improve how the room looks to outsiders. Moving house is the perfect time to declutter so that you are much more organised when you move into your new place, so you don’t end up taking things that you don’t really need or want with you.

With just a couple of changes to your home, it can become exactly what buyers are looking for. It also gives you more space to sort everything out before the big move, making the packing process easier. Remember, you don’t have to do all the points we've listed, but you'll notice a dramatic difference by making a couple of changes, and your house will feel more homely and inviting. similarly, save time on knowing what not to fix up when selling your home.
