A sure fire way to add value to your home

Putting your home on the market can be a daunting, exhaustive and often stressful experience. It’s a huge step and whilst you want the process to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible, you want to get a favourable price for your home.

Estate agents and property experts are always offering up helpful tips and advice on ways to make your home seem more desirable during viewings; for example, never have your washing up on display, always close the lavatory seat, and bake bread or cookies prior to viewings to create that homely aroma.

Adding value to your home is also desirable prior to selling; who doesn’t want to sell at a profit? Building an extension such as a conservatory is probably one of the most well-known ways to increase the value of your home but there’s a less drastic, cheaper way to get the job done. Your garden.

The garden should not be ignored when it comes to trying to sell your property. For some, a poor garden is a complete deal-breaker, regardless of how amazing the house is. A well-presented garden is a sure fire way to add value to your home but here in the UK, it can be pretty tough going getting your garden up to scratch, and keeping it that way, all year-round.

That’s why it makes so much sense to fake it! Artificial grass used to have a bit of a reputation of being off-putting when it first came out. But thanks to advances in technology, the fake stuff is now often indistinguishable from real grass. Because of this, attitudes have changed towards having a fake lawn and people are much more accepting.

Sarah Beeny, property selling guru, included installing an artificial lawn in some of her top tips for presenting your house to potential viewers, and increasing the value of your home. In fact, she even went as far as to describe it as a “godsend” especially if you’re selling during winter. Who are we to argue with Sarah Beeny?
