When we started to look for the first home we would buy together we were looking for something that would suit us for a very long time. I found the whole process of buying a house really stressful and I hated losing out on houses I loved. So, we bought a house big enough to be a forever house. However, the only way we could afford it was to buy it as the fixer upper it was (and still is)! While I was looking forward to having a project, I was also looking at ways that we could increase our property’s value. Balustrade Components have come up with this great infographic to show how you could increase your property’s value
How to Increase Your Property’s Value
Although we haven’t done even a quarter of the work that needs doing in our house, I’m glad some bits we’ve done will be worth it in the long run. One of the first jobs we did was the completely clear the garden, both front and back, to make them neat and tidy! We’ve also had new fences and some decking installed!
The next big job for us is central heating and a new boiler but after that it’s a bathroom upstairs and a new kitchen. I know these will be jobs that increase the value of our home in the long run because right now, they’re terrible! An extension would definitely add some value but we are a very long way off being able to afford that, or even a conservatory!
What jobs would you like to get done to increase your property’s value?!
