The best and worse house improvements to carry out?

I may have to sell my property( built 1910) over the next five years - depending on my wife's health. I intend to invest in improvements or alterations rather than save capital. What are the best (or to avoid) improvement projects?

  • Hi farlane776, Recently the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) released some new research which showed that making energy saving improvements to your property could help increase the value by 14 per cent on average. This was based on improving the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of a home from band G to E, or from band D to B. Unfortunately, for the East of England the DECC said that the "results were not statistically significant at the regional level", however the overall message of making energy-efficient changes still rings true. The research, which i've provided a link to below, did however show for the East that if the EPC moved from G to C then a property's value would increase by five per cent, and by seven per cent if it achieved an A rating. Thanks Scott

  • You could try putting up a new House Sign to make the entrance to your home more visually appealing.
