How to Add Value to Your Home
If you want to improve your Swanley property, there are many home refurbishments you can take undertake which will help to maximise the value of your home and attract buyers. As well as cosmetic enhancements such as extensions, redecorating and modernising spaces, you should also address the state of current plumbing and central heating systems in your property by arranging a boiler service, boiler installation, central heating service or bathroom installation.
Here are 4 things to consider for increasing the value of your home:
1. Install central heating
Having good central heating in a property is extremely important to most buyers and mortgage valuers, who will be looking to see that existing systems are in good working order, an annual boiler service has been carried out and any current boiler installation is sufficient for the size of the property. Using a local plumber to install new central heating or improve existing systems, will often add more value to your Swanley home than what it costs to have the work carried out.
2. Update plumbing
Does your property suffer from poor water flow or struggle to produce enough hot water for the day? If it does, there could be a problem with the plumbing and steps should be taken to improve this before putting your home on the market. Old pipework can be replaced quickly and easily by a professional plumber to improve water flow. You could also consider better plumbing for your bathroom installation, by installing a new pressurised system or pump for increased water pressure.
3. Redecorate the bathroom
An up to date, attractive bathroom installation is a huge attraction to both buyers and mortgage valuers and bathrooms in many properties throughout Swanley and the wider Kent areas could benefit from improvements. Redecorating does not have to be costly either, with small changes such as replacing old taps, making better use of storage, having a new toilet fitted or tiles redone can make all the difference. A reputable plumber such as Days Plumbing & Heating will be able to undertake all the fitting work for your bathroom, as well as carry out any required plumbing or boiler service needs.
4. Install a new boiler and bathroom
To greatly improve the value of your home, have a new boiler and bathroom fitted. Many boiler and central heating systems, especially in older properties throughout Swanley, are outdated and no longer sufficient to supply homeowners with good water pressure or heating. Updating an existing boiler installation to a more modern system, such as the combination boiler will help. If your property doesn’t have enough bathrooms or your current one needs replacing, a new bathroom installation will also attract a buyer’s attention. Consider having a plumber fit a power shower or heating flooring for an added touch of luxury.
