‘Simple’ bathroom and kitchen updates to ‘add value’ and ‘make your home more appealing’ – Express
“Relaying a driveway with contemporary porcelain, for example, is sure to make a good first impression, increase kerb appeal and add value but if you can’t quite stretch to that, simple updates like jet washing gravel driveways and weeding block paving will create an appealing welcome to both visitors and prospective buyers.
“Out the back, decking and patio areas are popular features and create an additional outdoor living space to relax and entertain in, whilst a summer house or garden building that can be used as an office or gym will certainly add value.”
Another expert recommended cleaning “tired looking” paintwork. This included around front doors and skirting boards.
Property expert, Jonathan Rolande, founder of House Buy Fast, said: “Don’t forget to do the same to window frames and clean the glass inside and out.”
