DIY projects when selling your Galway property

How DIY Projects Can Help Sell Your Home in Galway

Whether preparing to sell your home or planning to refresh one of your rental properties, home improvements are essential to boost the value of your property as well as your quality of life. That’s why we’ve created a list of simple and affordable projects to drive value into your property and help your house feel like home.

Kerb appeal

First impressions count and buyers can make up their minds within minutes of arriving at your property. Kerb appeal is vital. Painting front door or fences, garden maintenance and window cleaning. Don’t’ forget the back garden!

Look at Lighting

Getting the lighting right can make your home look warm and bright. Think about modernising the light fixtures, adding lamps to dull corners and use mirrors to reflect light. DIY stores have a vast and affordable range of lighting.

Grab a paintbrush

Scan your walls to see which need refreshing then grab a paintbrush. Remember to appeal to all buyers you need to keep colours neutral.

Spruce up the kitchen

Kitchens are the focal point of many homes and always the heart of the home. We spend so much time there! Add value by freshening-up cupboards with a new paint job, making handles and taps a feature with modern replacements, or revamp your seat cushions with new fabrics.

Perfect the Bathroom

Bathrooms can be a big selling point too. Add shelving for storage, replace the toilet seat and taps, check the grouting and sealants or install a new shower head.

Nitty Gritty!

Wear and tear on your home could create the impression that the property is not well cared for. Check out cracked tiles, dripping taps or even holes in walls and make sure they are dealt with before your home goes on the market. The last thing you want move in.
