SHOULD you be considering selling your property there are some simple renovations that can help ensure you get an optimal return on your investment.

Whether you’ve been waiting for that perfect time, or are looking for a quick sale, giving a bit of thought and taking that little extra care with your home renovations can make the difference between achieving a satisfying price for your home or being forced to knock something off the asking price.

Remember, when it comes to home renovations, the size of your space, the scope of work involved, your DIY abilities, the quality of materials you choose and even your geographic location all play a part.


However, you really do not need to spend a fortune to give your house much better kerb appeal. In fact, according to a recent report, fairly simple measures that give a favourable first impression can give the best return. This can be as easy as tidying up the garden and cutting the grass.

If you live in the house this is a low-cost measure you can do yourself. If the property is a second home like so many are in Spain, it is not too costly to arrange for another party to do this for you.

Something as subtle as replacing your garage door or landscaping your garden will be some of the first things potential buyers will notice before they even set foot on the property.

Installing new windows, adding high-efficiency appliances and repainting the exterior and interior of your home can also make a huge impact for relatively little cost. Of course, you may wish to renovate while you continue to live in the property.

Ask yourself what did you look at when your first arrived at this property? What attracted you? Now recreate that attraction for someone else.
