How DIY Projects Can Help Sell
Your Home in Kent

In this three-minute read,
we look at some simple and affordable projects to help sell your home faster
and probably for a higher price, too.

It’s DIY Day on 3 April and
if you’re planning to sell your home, here are six easy things you can do
yourself to help sell it quickly. They are simple, straightforward, and
inexpensive ways to improve your home’s look and value. Happy DIY Day!

Make sure
your exterior looks excellent

buyers make up their minds within a few minutes of arriving, so kerb appeal is
vital in creating a good first impression. Think about repainting your front
door or fences, check your front garden is well-maintained and check your
windows have been well looked after. Tidy up your back garden too if it needs
it – people often visualise themselves using it.

on the market, now is the time to get busy with a brush. Remember, you’re
trying to appeal to buyers so go for neutral colours. You could even read up on

Give your
kitchen some TLC

Kitchens are
the focal point of many homes, so a revamp is one of the best ways to add value
to yours. Don’t worry, you don’t need to fit a completely new kitchen! Think

taps a feature with modern replacements, or rejuvenating seat cushions with

The bathroom
can also be a big selling point, so make sure yours is looking its best.
Bathrooms often lack storage so you could install some shelves if you’re
feeling confident. Think about other simple jobs like replacing the toilet seat
or installing a new shower head. Both of these are easy jobs – even for
beginners – and will improve your bathroom’s appearance.

Look at
your lighting

Clever lighting
can make your home look warm and bright, and therefore more inviting. Think
about modernising the light fixtures, using energy efficient bulbs or adding
lamps to rooms where there isn’t much natural light.

jobs mean a lot

Small problems
and defects could create the impression your home is not well cared for. Look
out for things like cracked tiles, dripping taps or even holes in walls and
make sure they are dealt with before your home goes on the market. Buyers do
not want to be hit with a list of jobs just after they move in.
