Are you up for selling your home right now? Maybe you’re looking to move on to greener pastures for the new year? Maybe you’re just looking to get into the real estate market in a big way, and you’re trying to get your portfolio underway? No matter what kind of person you are in the market, it’s time to make yourself some money!
The housing market is very varied right now, and that means you can very much make a big buck off of any kind of property. But there’s always going to be some house features out there that are more popular than others, and if you’re desperate for a sale right now, you might want to look into adding a couple of them. So here’s a bit of inspiration over what interior design is going to work best for your buying and selling dreams this year.
Some High Ceilings
High ceilings give people a huge sense of space, without needing to knock out walls or add in other extensions. And that’s worth a lot of money to you right now – you won’t have to spend much money renovating here, and you’ll only have to lift the ceilings on both floors. And if there’s an attic in your house, you can always turn the second floor ceilings into more vaulted pieces using the free space up there.
This is one of the most popular features to add if the house you’ve got to sell is on the small side, and is more of a cozy cottage than anything else. There’s more room to work with, and you don’t have to cut down the surrounding space on the property either. And if there’s a lot of garden to work with, buyers are going to get even more excited about the space on offer!
Big Windows and Sun Exposure
Having the sun beam down on your house whenever it’s out in the sky is a huge bonus to anyone looking to buy in the early year, seeing as it’s cold outside and we have little sun exposure until May comes along. And the more sun a house receives on a daily basis, the better an investment solar panels will be. Green energy and energy efficiency is what a lot of buyers are looking for.
Get a Fireplace Installed
Fireplaces are as popular today as they were in the 19th/20th centuries, and seeing as they’ve been mostly phased out in the last 20 years or so, people are desperate to get their hands on a property with one in the modern day and age. And you don’t even need to have a whole chimney fitted, not when there’s various electric fireplace models out there for you to invest in. It’s a hint of time gone by, and it’s a great way to heat up the whole house in one go.
Buyers are less and less specific about the features they want in a new home, but there’s still some old favourites!
