OK, so you have decided to sell your home. You are also keen to complete this transaction quickly, as the market is currently peaking without affordable housing becoming a thing of the past. In addition to this, revised stamp duty laws and the promise of a dedicated ISA savings account are also enabling first-time buyers to enter the market. Altogether, these factors create a landscape where supply, demand and opportunity all dovetail beautifully to create the perfect storm for vendors nationwide.
With this being said, there are also additional steps that you can take as a proactive home-owner to help entice the appeal of your property. One of these is to implement eco-modifications throughout the home, focusing on low-cost exercises that add value while potentially reducing future living costs.
Install LED Lighting
We are now in the fifth generation of LED lighting, and today’s fittings are aesthetically pleasing in addition to being energy efficient (You can now purchase LED lights that work on efficiency levels of around 80%). The accessibility of LED lighting also means that it is eminently affordable in 2015, so home-owners can create a more appealing and energy efficient home with only a minimal investment.
Paint your Walls using Sustainable Materials
Insulate Cavity Walls
Continuing the eco-friendly trend, it is worth painting your walls with sustainable materials rather than using wallpaper or creating similarly textured surfaces. There is now a strong and vibrant market for sustainable paint materials, as both commercial and residential customers look to have a positive impact on the environment without compromising on the interior appeal of their homes. By redecorating in this manner, you can strive to sell your house fast without spending significantly.
