Add value to your property

Posted by Sextant Properties on December 15, 2020

Are you keen for your house to rise in value? By getting to grips with your drill, screwdrivers and your imaginative spirit, you can easily redecorate at low cost.  No need to build a swimming pool in your garden to double the price of your French property,  there are easier and cheaper ways. Small details are sufficient to give a new touch to your house.

When a potential buyer is deciding whether the price of your house is justified, you can easily impress them! At the very least try to make the most of the character of your property, and enhance it if you can- if you don’t have exposed stonework but know it lies behind your walls, remember to mention it to potential buyers, and likewise if you have a working fireplace but have covered it up. As for the inside your house, you may have a room which is currently empty. Should you have an attached garage to this room, knock down the party wall and your single garage has transformed into a double! A double garage means two cars, which will undoubtedly add value.. In our example here, it is more interesting to transform a garage into a double instead of converting a single garage with huge workshop opposite. Indeed, a small workshop is sufficient for a household and this project would not attract more potential buyers.

–          If your spare room doesn’t have a common wall with the garage, you could transform it into a further bedroom (make sure it is well insulated) or a playroom. The latter is obviously easily done:, just lay down a carpet and put shelves up for your children’s toys. If neither of these options appeals you could always  install a Home cinema system, which gives a taste of leisure and style, rather than an office for instance.

–          Regarding the floor, opt for wooden floors rather than tiled floors. If your budget is too tight, avoid parquet as it is very expensive; wooden floors are good enough. As for materials, marble is still appealing. Customers might be interested in  this material because of its reputation, appearing as it does in chateaux and luxury houses. Tasteful, pared down and neutral decoration is the way to go, that way you have more chance of appealing to a wide array of potential buyers.
