Add Value to Your Home

General Inspections: What to Expect

Here are some practical ways to add value to your home for under $1000.

  • Maximise the ‘street appeal’ of your house. Landscape or just tidy up the front garden. Make sure the front of the house itself is in good condition.
  • Buy a quality letterbox.
  • Repair fly screens on windows and doors.
  • Remove any external rubbish, pull out dead trees/plants, mow lawns and tidy garden beds.
  • Re-seed or fertilise worn lawn areas.
  • Touch up any areas where paint has peeled or is discoloured. Always retain a small amount of your original paint colour for this purpose.
  • Add size and a sense of space to an old bathroom by mounting a sheet mirror on one wall.
  • Replace internal door handles and kitchen cupboard handles.
  • Avoid clutter and keep the decorating style simple.
  • Use texture to add interest to a room through wall finishes, rugs or cushions.
