Real estate is one of the only assets that allow you to work on it to increase its value. Be it residential or commercial property, you can take steps to increase its valuation while making it a better place to live and work in. Not all changes need a lot of money. Some things just need careful planning. In this article, we will offer some handy tips to help you increase the value of your property.
Create a space devoid of leakage and seepage
One of the biggest concerns of potential buyers of residential or commercial properties is seepage and/or leakage. This can be due to rains or water seeping through the walls coming from a bathroom or the room above. If left unchecked, water seepage can damage the building’s structure and leave it smelling foul. Sometimes, this can involve talking to your neighbors and asking them to make changes to their homes. Make sure that you locate and eliminate all sources of leakage and seepage in your property.
Keep the place well-lit
Apartments and offices that lack natural light usually seem closed and claustrophobic. Light and ventilation are essential to make the place look appealing and inviting. Nobody likes a home or office that looks dark and dull. Make sure that you use large windows, light curtains, use open-layout kitchens, and low sitting to make the space feel well-lit and warm.
Renovations can help you redefine the house based on its structure and your needs. Use better tiles, create wet and dry areas in the bathroom, use water-saving flush systems, etc. You might have to break down a few walls to create a better living space. Also, make sure that you choose the wall paint based on the light and interiors used.
Focus on the electrical wiring
Under home improvement, electrical wiring is another important aspect. Make sure that you constantly check on the status of the wiring in your home/office and keep them in top shape. Also, use LED lights instead of large tube lights, energy-efficient geysers and air-conditioners. Remember, if your house/office looks ready to move in, then its value increases for the potential buyer.
Make the exteriors count
The first impression is usually a lasting impression. Hence, make sure that you focus on the exteriors of your home and office along with its interiors. Make sure that the outside walls are clean and painted and so are the doors and windows. Add lights along the corridor or hang murals to add an aesthetic appeal.
While choosing furniture, make sure that it is aesthetic and functional. Avoid overcrowding the space. People love empty zones at home and office. Also, invest in furniture made using rosewood or teak as its value increases over time. Also, invest in a good Kashmiri carpet as it increases in value with time too. Remember, minimalism is trending in furnishings. Keep the structure and space available in your house in mind while planning the furnishings.
Use woodwork to reduce the load on the buyer and enhance the value of your property. Choose the wood and laminate carefully based on your budget and focus on materials that require low maintenance.
Choose the property carefully
Apart from making the changes recommended above, you must make sure that you buy a property after carefully considering its location and surroundings. While there are certain things that you can change about a property, location and surroundings are beyond your control. Make sure that you are in a well-connected location with adequate amenities and facilities that can make living and/or working there hassle-free.
