I would say it is one of them thoughts where some people like block paving and some do not, anything that makes your property look more attractive will help in a faster sale, in todays climate if you are able to work with what you already have then i personally would advise you to do that rather than spending money, the key to selling property now a days is to market for a more realistic selling price than what most properties are trying to achieve at the moment, if you make your home attractive to the eye you will certainly gain a higher price within your property value scale, we all work with lower and higher end of a value, the better your property the higher up the scale it will go but if what you already have is ok then its the good old saying if its not broke dont fix it, you could as easily waste the money on something no one wants or increase interest to people that do.

Blockpaving can look attractive, however if you are covering bare earth with concrete or blockpaving you may be causing drainage and flooding problems, especially if everyone else in the neighbourhood is doing the same.

I think if done to a high standard and the area of land in question needed resurfacing, then yes it would be a selling point. Whether it would add value right now? I'm not sure if it would. A lot would depend on the value of your property, too much money can be spent on some properties and the money isn't always recouped on sale.

Block Paving will most certainly make your property more appealing and so will attract more levels of interest should you be wishing to sell your property in the future. In regards to adding 'value', I'm afraid it wouldn't necessarily do that. However from a buyers perspective there is less to negotiate on as the property is clearly well-maintained and cared for. This means you could potentially command a better selling price. If you are looking to sell your home then I'd recommend you leave it as it is if it could be tidied up and make presentable, however should this be a long-term investment, then with the lower maintenance requirements of block paving and lasting appeal I'd definately look into it further.
