When it comes to selling a home, getting the best price for it comes high on homeowners’ lists. With many offering prices over asking price in the current market, experts have shared how to increase it even more by making changes, including adding fitted wardrobes.
The experts said: “At a time when homeowners are putting a premium on space, fitted bedroom furniture is sure to help add value to the property.
“A buyer expects to see clever storage solutions in properties of all sizes, especially as new home developments from national house builders are providing excellent storage solutions and setting a new benchmark for buyers.
“In traditional properties, fitted wardrobes can be a great solution for maximising storage options, while being sympathetic to original features, and in more modern properties bold styling choices add standout.”
When it comes to a viewing, potential buyers will make up their mind on a property within the first 30 seconds of walking into a home, according to Foxtons.

Home libraries, even small rooms, can also increase the value of a property.
According to Neville Johnson, home library projects have been increasingly popular in the last two years.
They added: “Depending on the style of the property, a traditional library, complete with mullions, skirting and cornicing or a contemporary library with shelf lighting and seamless doors, can be a real focal point and add desire, quality and value to the home.”
Ryan Ninnis from Foxtons said: “Presenting a stylish, well designed, and functional home to buyers is a key way to differentiate and sell your property quickly.
“We regularly see increases in value of 15 percent to 20 percent for owners who have made home improvements that appeal to the demand of the local market.”
The property market has never been more competitive and according to Neville Johnson, now is the time for sellers to make the most of their assets.
Mal Shaw, Sales Director at Neville Johnson, said: “Now more than ever, we know that UK homeowners are looking to add value to their properties so we’ve taken our knowledge and decades of experience in home renovations and launched an informative digital guide with Foxtons that highlights the key home improvements to consider before selling a property.
“Selling your property can be one of the most exciting times in a homeowners’ life, but it can also be a stressful one.
“We hope that our new step-by-step guide will serve as a useful resource for homeowners looking to carry out desirable home renovations ahead of selling their properties.”
