Improving the Resale Value of Your Home

It is often said that the single most important component for the value of a house is the location. To some extent, that’s true; most of the increase in house prices over the last few decades has actually been to do with the value of land. But, if you’re looking to sell your house, there’s nothing much you can do about the location – a house is where it is!

However, there are still many things you can do to improve the resale value of your home. Many other factors are considered when establishing how much a property is worth – things like street appeal, automation, and security. Here are just a few of the reasons why you might want to increase the value of your home, and how you can go about it.

Why Improve the Resale Value of Your Home?

​The most obvious reason you’d improve the resale value of your home is that you’re planning on selling in the future and want to make a bigger profit than you otherwise would. However, that’s not the only benefit that comes from having a better valued home. When the value of your home goes up, so does the amount of equity you have access to. If you do something like install high-quality electric garage doors, not only will you have all the physical benefits it confers, but you may be able to borrow more money from the bank, too.

What Factors Will Increase the Value of a Home?

​Simply put, a house is more valuable when it is more desirable. The more people are willing to pay for a property, the more the owner can expect to make when selling. So, what do people want in a house?

Street Appeal

​When establishing the value of a house, first impressions count! A house with great ‘street appeal’ is one that looks desirable from the outside. Things like a nice garden, pleasant façade, big windows, a pleasant fence, and a high-quality, safe garage door all contribute to street appeal.


​The latest mod cons are always sure to impress. In today’s terms, that means automation. Things like home security systems, voice activated LED lights, cameras and smart roller garage doors with infra-red safety beams and a cutting-edge garage door remote are all good examples.


​Quite understandably, people want to feel safe in their own homes. If a house looks as though it isn’t secure – with shoddy locks and an easy to break into garage – that will keep the value of the property low. For a house that looks safe, you can’t do better than secure Dominator doors.
