Reforms to increase profitability
The appraisal of a home, far from being a static value, depends on numerous factors such as the area where it is located, the dimensions, orientation and condition of the home, as well as the current market price.
The purchase price and, above all, the dynamics of the market will determine our chances of revaluing a home on the market in the short or long term, or simply, to improve the habitability conditions of its inhabitants.
In this sense, the approach of a solution to increase the value of a home should not be taken lightly. An in-depth study is recommended.
What type of reforms increase the value of a flat the most?
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. Newly renovated kitchens with good appliances are highly valued, if you decide to leave the apartment furnished. The doors, cabinets and countertops should also be restored whenever possible, as well as the sink and tiling if they are very outdated.
Reforms in the living room
The reforms that can be done in the living room, in addition to changing the furniture if it is very old, are more related to maintenance reforms: painting walls, changing floors, adding light… An extra point that can add more value to the house is to change blinds and curtains.
The bathroom is one of the most damaged rooms in the house. It is important to fix damp or moldy ceilings, which is very important to fix. If the sink, bidet and toilet are very old, they should be changed, as well as the bathtub or shower. In fact, replacing the bathtub with a shower tray could also enhance the value of the apartment, since it provides more space.
Reforms in the rooms
Again, no more reform is needed than the paint and the floors, although it is always appreciated that the rooms are exterior or, at least, have some natural light. Also the fitted wardrobes are a plus.
Maintenance reforms are the most important. Change floors, paint walls, remove dampness, check the electrical installation, change pipes and boiler if necessary. These reforms will depend on the state of the flat, but they will give the final touch to leave the house like the jets of gold.
Home automation consists of turning the house into an “intelligent” apartment with thermostats or electric shutters. It is a great plus to take into account, since it modernizes the home and is very attractive in the market.
Small renovations that will increase the value
- Change the shower screen, if any, or put in a new one.
- Provide more light to the home by opening windows.
- Change tiles, if any.
- Give new uses to rooms that are not used, such as small rooms or storage rooms.
- Change lamps and light bulbs for light fixtures, especially if they are old.
- Give a sober and modern design to the house with a decoration that does not have to be expensive, but it is beautiful.
