Update your windows and doors, or even just your front door and you can reap the rewards of enhanced property value and saleability among many other rewarding features.
Simple home improvements like these can provide a super cost-effective way of modernising your property whilst avoiding disruptive, ongoing building work and often, having to obtain planning permission.
Not only can you make your home look and sell better but you can also increase the energy efficiency, saving money on heating in the winter and even fans or aircon in the summer with certain models such as aluminium. Users looking for a new home on Zoopla and other online property search sites can now compare properties based on their energy efficiency, even more of a reason not to neglect this feature of your home!
Since the UK waved goodbye to the last recession and property prices began to climb back, the number of home improvements being carried out has risen steadily year on year since 2013.
On top of an increase in home improvements, 5 times more people are choosing to update their home instead of moving compared with those 4 years ago.
However, while some of us choose to make our current home better, many of us would still rather move, and hence many of us just want to increase the value first to help us buy our “dream home”. Either way, in the current market, whether you are moving or staying put, the benefits of installing new windows and doors cannot be overlooked.
