What adds value when selling your house

Putting a new bathroom and kitchen in my house does this add value to the house when it comes to selling? Also i know that the house will need rewiring should this be done? or leave it to the buyer to do?

  • I would say rewiring would come first. Bathrooms and kitchens are largely cosmetic, if current ones are in working order. It is difficult to say what would add most value, it would be more about improving saleability. I personally would prefer a house that had been rewired, had double glazing and central heating. Then the kitchen and bathroom would be my choice. You could just knock the cost of those jobs off the asking price, some like a bargain and a project.

  • When the market was good extensions were all the rage and guaranteed a good return. But with the market slowing up just the decorating and new bathroom or Kitchen would do to add value to the home.

  • I would say a nice fitted kitchen and bathroom and no structural, electrical or plumbing works that need doing. Simply because, most buyers do not have the extra cash to do these things when buying a house in the current market. So, having these things definitely makes your home more desirable.
