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?!

These are great tips, we recently moved before Christmas and we also have a house that needs some tlc. We are hoping to create a extra bedroom and make the kitchen bigger in the future x
I’m saving this for when we buy. It’s our dream to do a house up to make our own but we need to save for a deposit first!
As I live in a flat there’s less that I can do as I can’t add extra rooms or things like that but making sure the bathroom and kitchen are new and clean are the most important things x
There are so many good tips and pieces of advice here. It always surprises me how some inexpensive changes can make so much difference x
I found this really interesting. We’re actually hoping to renovate our house this year x
I would love my garden done up professionally to increase the value of our house.
Such great tips and advice! The first home we bought, it was only a couple of years old and didn’t need any work doing. Our current (and last!) house was bought from the inlaws and my father in law is a dab hand at all things DIY and again, needs nothing major doing to it. Although I am sure it is stressful at times, I think it sounds so cosy and exciting to re-build your “forever home” so that it fits you perfectly! Good luck with the rest of your house renovation!
This is really helpful. I want to make some changes and the bathroom is where I think our money is best invested and this seems to agree with me
