There are a number of ways to increase the appeal of your property. Many estate agents are well-versed in such qualities, including the well-known kerb appeal that remains a primary focus for sellers looking to make a positive first impression. However, coinciding with current trends, there are a number of assets that can be purchased for a home that simultaneously increase the value of the property too.
Electric Charging Points
With many car manufacturers transitioning to electronic vehicle production, home charging points are becoming increasingly sought after. In addition to enabling residents to more easily own an electric car, those with home charging points are able to have better control over when their vehicle charges, avoiding the costs of public charging zones and taking advantage of off-peak energy costs.
There is the potential need for rewiring a home, which could cost a little time and money to ensure safety, however, the return on investment is excellent as a growing number of property buyers will see charging points not only as a luxury feature but an essential part of a living space.
Hot Water Taps
Once associated with luxurious homes, hot water taps are now an indicator of a well-designed and functional living space. Removing the need for kettles and helping to reduce the amount of energy consumed by pans upon the hob, these sleek gadgets are a financial and environmental advantage for homeowners, also being available as a part of a kitchen’s main sink feature.
Having a room that is separate from a living space, one that is also able to take advantage of the aesthetic beauty of a garden is encouraging many to buy log cabins. Whether a resident is looking to establish a private office space, a sheltered dining area, a creative studio, or simply a stunning outbuilding for relaxation during all seasons, log cabins have become one of the most celebrated assets among the country’s neighbourhoods.
As energy costs become a greater concern for residents, many are looking for a home that will be advantageous to their utility spending. As such, and fitting with increasing support for technologically advanced homes, smart boilers are an excellent purchase for homeowners. By offering a greater control over a home’s heating, as well as a generally more efficient heating and cooling system, smart boilers are a safe investment for those wanting to make their home more appealing to the market.
Integrated Sound Systems
Sound systems, such as Sonos, are great assets for homes, enabling residents to access their music in every room. While stand-alone speakers are enjoyed, it is integrated systems that will help a property to sell. Such a feature includes establishing speakers in each room, and having them connected to a central system that enables family members to each have access and control to the sounds they hear.
These systems alleviate the need for larger sound systems and are more easily upgradable should new systems become available. Since the majority of buyers will want some form of entertainment, whether cinema, music, or radio, having an established and luxurious sound system is certainly to be a benefit.
