Boosting the value of your home is very easy to do when you have thousands put away in the bank. The problem is that if you are on a budget, and you don’t have this much put to one side, how do you then go about getting the job done?

It’s All About the Kitchen

When you look at your kitchen, do you see old taps, worn out counter tops and cluttered space? Then it may be time for you to get some parts replaced. It is understandable that you may not have the budget to go and replace the entire kitchen at once, and for this reason, you should focus on the parts that are going to draw the most attention. This could include the cupboard doors and the worktop, but it could also include your back splash as well. The main thing that you have to remember is that you don’t have to rip everything out just to get a fresh look and it is very easy for you to change things around without breaking the bank. If you can’t afford to replace the counter top or doors try and replace the smaller things, like the grout, the hob or anything else that is showing signs of wear.  If you can’t afford this then it may be worth looking into secured loans, as this is a brilliant way for you to get the money you need to get little jobs like this done and if you plan to sell your home soon after, there is no risk at all.

Old Features

If you live in a very old home, or even a Victorian style home then it helps to make sure that any architectural elements fit into the room. If you have some old coverings or even picture rails that just don’t work in the room as it is now then it is a good idea to get these replaced. This can add thousands to the value of your home and it won’t cost you a lot of money either. This is especially the case if you shop around. The main thing that you have to remember here is that people will often pay more for period features. If you have them, don’t rip them out, instead, replace them so you offer a fresh look without compromising the feel of the home.


If you have a garden then you’re in luck. This is actually a major selling point for your house, but it won’t be if it looks like you’re stepping into Jumanji every time you open your back door. So if your garden needs a bit of TLC then make sure that you do this. Try and cut your lawn and always do everything you can to plant some new flowers when the right season comes along. This can add up to 20% to the value of your home and potted plants are very affordable for you to buy as well so you know that you won’t have any problems at all there. You can even buy seeds if you want to cut down the cost even more, but you do run the risk of them not growing properly.
