When owning a home, it's important to realize that this is a lifelong investment. You see, when you buy a car, the longer you have it, the less that it will be worth, whereas the longer you have a home, the more expensive it will become, and that's why you need to move with the times and do what needs to be done so that your potential dated home becomes a desired, current one. Real estate is constantly changing, so keeping your eye on the market can play very well to your advantage. Even the littlest things that are easy enough to change, replace, or install can dramatically add value to your dated home, as well as boost the curb appeal and improve the overall interior and exterior look.

The windows and doors
Windows and doors don't often get replaced unless they have been broken, so with that, many homes, regardless of how new they may appear, may very well have old windows and doors. But this not only ages the overall home, but also weakens the security because they will be a lot easier to break into, and that's the last thing that you want – it's not worth the risk. So bring everything back to life and get some new home windows and doors to stay secure and modernize as you go.
If you feel as though your home is no longer big enough, or you have other plans to do something with it, like create a conservatory to enjoy the sunshine in, then this can raise the value of your home quite substantially. This is because you are making things bigger, and so what may start off as a simple little house, could end up being a large luxurious one. It also appeals to people because it's already been done, as a pose to them having to go through all the efforts themselves. It can be pretty pricey depending on the kind of extension you want, but it will all be worth it whenever you do decide to sell.
A new room
If you have a garage or a loft that is never in use other than being a storage unit, then try and have a clear out and make use of this extra space that you have on your hands. The more active rooms a home has, be it a bedroom or bathroom, the more expensive the home becomes. So rather than leaving your loft full of old boxes coated in dust – sort it out and convert your loft into an extra bedroom, or whatever else you would like to have – the possibilities are endless. Again, this isn't a process that can happen overnight. There comes a lot of planning to make everything perfect, but the effort definitely pays off.
Now you have a few ideas as to how you can add more value to your home, you can see if any of them appeal to you, or you can try coming up with your own ideas.
