Budget-friendly tips to instantly add value to a property

Estonia, with its beautiful landscapes and impressive architecture, is the perfect place for a unique real estate journey. Let’s discover some easy but effective tips for adding value to your property.


Expand for more usable space

Consider making your home feel bigger and more useful. This doesn’t just mean adding rooms; it’s about making the existing space work better. This is a great way to boost a property’s worth, especially when space is limited.


Homes are valued by the livable space they contain. Adding a bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe or another needed space to a home can increase function and add value.


But adding unique living spaces can also be a smart idea. For instance, transforming an unused area into a reading or hobby corner, or a mini home office can bring character to your property. Adding these spaces can set your property apart from the competition when it’s time to sell or rent.


And don’t forget storage space. Limited storage space is a big drawback for property seekers. Think open shelves in the kitchen and bathroom. Additionally, installing hooks onto the backs of doors is another simple trick that’s often overlooked. And why not make use of vertical wall space with floating shelves for a stylish display.


Boost Your Home’s Efficiency

Boost the value of your home by making it more energy-efficient. One way is by improving insulation—this helps keep your home comfortable all year round whilst reducing energy bills. Consider a thermostat for efficient heating and cooling. Another smart move is to switch to energy-saving devices, like LED bulbs, which use less energy and last longer. Smart home features such as thermostats, security systems, and lighting controls are a good idea too.

These can make your home more convenient and eco-friendly. So, energy-efficient upgrades are a key factor in boosting the value of your real estate. All whilst catering to a modern lifestyle.


A fresh coat of paint 

Painting can make things look fresh and new — and it’s not that expensive either.

Begin with any outdated color scheme. For example, if over 10 years ago you let your child paint their bedroom in bright colors, and they’ve now moved out…then that’s a good place to start. 

A fresh coat of paint does wonders for a property’s value. It boosts appeal, making a great first impression. Plus, paint protects against weather and wear, showing your property is well-cared for. It’s a cost-effective way to transform and increase market value.

Kitchen & bathroom enhancements

The kitchen and bathroom play an important role in both daily living and overall property value. 

Many of us see the kitchen as the central feature of a home, so if it’s outdated it can affect the value. Likewise, if you aren’t able to utilize your kitchen fully due to layout, space or other issues, you won’t be maximizing the space.

If updating your entire kitchen is too big of a task, a small remodel could still benefit your home’s value. Simple changes like having matching appliances instantly give your kitchen a modern and unified look. Updating cabinet hardware— trade out old handles for brand new durable ones for better functionality and a cleaner finish.


Now, let’s talk about the bathroom. Refinishing your bathtub is a wallet-friendly way to update your bathroom. Instead of buying a new tub, you repair and reglaze the old one making it look fresh and new. It’s a simple project that adds value without breaking the bank. Additionally, add a showerhead to your bathtub. It’s an upgrade that doubles up your bathtub, perfect for relaxing baths and quick showers. This small change adds value by opening up options and convenience, making it appeal to potential buyers or renters.


By implementing these simple yet impactful tips, you not only enhance your property but also position it as a valuable investment in the eyes of potential clients. Stay tuned for more insights on optimizing your real estate journey in Estonia.
