New Year’s resolutions for home owners

Here we are again, it’s nearly time for a new year and a new you, that time when everyone makes New Year’s resolutions for the year ahead. If you’re feeling fed up about starting 2017 in your property, then it could be the perfect time for a change. It might be as simple as a spring clean, declutter or change of décor to help you feel at home, but the key is sticking to those property promises you made in January, to help you fall back in love with your home.

Here’s a check list to help you update your home and stick to your property New Year’s resolutions in 2017:


Spring clean

It might sound simple, but a deep clean and declutter can transform your property helping you to feel at home again. It’s low cost and you can involve the whole family after the indulgent Christmas break!



Are you putting up with broken door handles and lopsided shelves? Start the year by fixing all of the small DIY jobs around the house and your property will go from shabby to chic in no time.



Opting for a new colour scheme or feature wall can completely transform a tired room. A lick of paint can really freshen the place up and create a beautiful room once again – good for your wellbeing and more inviting to buyers.



Get the garden up to scratch – if you’re not feeling green fingered, consider creating a low maintenance garden which won’t need constant upkeep. This will improve the overall look and feel of your property and provide a useful outside space, perfect for summer dining.


Big plans

More and more home owners are choosing to extend their properties rather than move out of them. If you love your house, but just need that extra bit of room, an extension or loft conversion is another great way to add space and add value for when you’re ready to sell.


On the move

If you’re ready for a complete change and have the funds to support your property move, there is no time like the present.
