Pay attention to the bathroom next!
This is the other room that has really taken off lately. The secret is to keep things simple. You don’t need to do a lot with the room, it’s all about the features that you put in, such as a set of new taps, a heated chrome towel rail, a big new shower head, a power shower, a glass screen or glass door instead of a shower curtain. A new bathroom puts 2.99 per cent onto the house value.
Put in central heating!
If it’s not already there. You’ll spend €1,000 – €3,000, but will add €5/6k to the value.
Xtra tip! – Every time you stay in a smart hotel, make a note of their bathroom fittings.
Don’t bother doing too much to the bedrooms – apart from a few soft furnishings here and there.
Xtra tip! – Work out who is your most likely type of buyer and present the property accordingly. This will determine whether you present a spare room as, say, an office, a play room, a gym or a study!…
