How to Add Value onto Property Developments

Before you put your property on the market this year, you may want to add more value to it. Property developments come in all shapes and sizes – from an entire kitchen renovation to tidying the garden. Typically, the more you invest in a development, the more value you will get out of it. You can earn some extra cash and put it towards the décor of your new home. 

If you are ready to sell your home, consider these tips and tricks to increase its value. 

Property value

Modernise the space

Modern homes are popular with buyers right now – especially ones that don’t need any major structural renovations. Look at each room of your home and identify whether you need to update a few features, like the kitchen or bathroom unit. A kitchen renovation can add thousands to the value of your property. Choose a modern style with a neutral colour palette and a few luxurious touches, like a marble worktop. Aim to find materials that fit the current interior trends while also being durable and easy to maintain. 

Add light

Natural light can improve your well-being and create a positive atmosphere in the home. Many buyers are looking for an open plan living space with plenty of natural light flowing through the property. If your home is looking a little dark these days, add natural light with VELUX windows to open up the space. 

Speaking of windows, you should also assess whether it’s time to replace your existing windows before selling. Poor windows can result in condensation, mould and potential structural damage. Replace your older windows with new ones to increase the quality of your home and sale value.


If you have a front garden, you need to ensure its tidy and maintained for the buyer’s arrival. First impressions count, and a garden can make a huge difference to buyers. Trim back the bushes, mow the lawn and remove any rubbish from the space. 


A neutral colour palette will appeal to most buyers. Replace any patterned wallpaper or bold colour choices with whites, greys, and beige. You could add a few accent colours with accessories and furnishings to give the space a little more character. Emerald and mustard tones are bang-on-trend now.

Deep clean

Do not underestimate the power of a deep clean. You could hire a professional cleaning service to clean your carpets, couch, and any hard-to-reach areas. Repaint any stained walls and scrub your flooring until it looks brand new again. Don’t forget to give the light switches and skirting boards a quick dust as well. 


Buyers want to imagine themselves living in a property. Remove any personal items from the space, like family photos or personal ornaments. 

You won’t regret going the extra mile to make your home appealing to potential buyers.
