With house prices in the West Midlands increasing and the cost of moving along now standing at an average of over £12000.00 many families are finding that it makes more sense to stay put and improve than move.
There’s no doubt about it – investing in your home has always been prudent. Successful improvements can add tens of thousands to your house price at just a fraction of the cost of moving.
Not only will they make your home a more enjoyable place to live – they could also make it easier for you to move up the housing ladder in the future, as your home’s increased value will help bridge the funding gap to your next home.
Here at Finesse we do not profess to be financial experts & would certainly not offer financial advice but we do believe that investing in your property is still one of the most prudent things you can do. In the long run – all improvements you make to your home will prove to be well worth the investment – as long as they have been undertaken by reputable companies that honour their guarantees. Even small improvements can add up to big gains in property value.
Windows & Doors – Style and Security
One of the best ways to improve the value of your property is to upgrade your windows & doors. Not only will you be improving the thermal efficiency of your property and enjoying reduced heating bills while you live there but you will also be adding to the value of your property should you decide to sell it. Of course there are other benefits to be gained by upgrading your windows & doors that can’t be measured in pound notes alone. Greater security, reduced noise from outside and less harmful UV ray penetration from the sun are all major benefits that can also be gained that add value not on to your house, but also your lifestyle.
Create the Curb Appeal
If you’re looking to make a big statement and add to the saleability of your home then we would recommend that you don’t forget the front door; it is often the first thing that people will notice about your property. We have many options on offer for front doors that will make your home not only beautiful but ultra secure too.
Bringing the outside in
A conservatory is a relatively simple way of adding luxury living space to your home – and at the same-time add up to 7% to your house value according to TV’s property expert Phil Spencer.
The key to a great conservatory is to make sure it’s in proportion to your house, though, as a badly designed and poorly fitted conservatory could actually reduce your home’s value. Make sure the conservatory matches the style of the rest of the house. Don’t make it seem as if it’s in any way separate, with its own entrance, for example. You can enhance the feeling of space and flow by installing the same flooring throughout your downstairs living area. It leads the eye on and ensures that the conservatory feels part of the rest of the house. And remember is a conservatory is under a certain size you may not need planning permission; but if you do we take care of all that for you.
