10 tips to update your home over the summer break

The summer holidays are a great time for homeowners to spruce up their property and prepare for a New Year sale. Cameron Nicholls, Founder and Principal of Nicholls & Co Estate Agents in Abbotsford, shares his top tips on how a little dose of DIY can add significant dollars to the sale of a property.
 “The summer break is a great time to update your home and get stuck into any DIY jobs that you just haven’t gotten around to all year. Thanks to the warmer weather, attacking the back shed and garden is a lot more appealing, plus it can add a huge amount of value to your property in the long run,” said Cameron.
Cameron’s top 10 tips for a summer makeover include:
  1. Tackle one room at a time 
  2. Paint your front door 
  3. Update light fittings
  4. Install new blinds 
  5. Invest in scatter cushions 
  6. Bring the outdoors in
  7. Add artwork outdoors 
  8. Clean, clean, clean 
  9. Update doorknobs and handles 
  10. Touch up doorframes and skirting boards
