What improvements have you made?

People go to all sorts of lengths in preparing for a valuation. You can do anything from a spring clean, to a loft extension. The main thing to bear in mind is to make sure the cost of the renovations doesn’t outweigh the amount they’ll add to the property. A lick of paint is relatively cheap and can really work wonders, as can a lot of elbow grease making sure everything is clean and tidy before the estate agent arrives. Be sure to point out any work you may have had done to the estate agent as home improvements can add a great deal of value to your home, for instance:

  • Bedroom 8.8%
  • Bathroom 6.1%
  • Conservatory 5.0%
  • Heating 5.4%
  • Wooden flooring 2.0%
  • Landscaped garden 3.6%
