With all the different DIY and property shows on television it is perhaps no surprise that they have inspired the nation to get their hands dirty and get into DIY. This is what the Alliance and Leicester found.
Decorating is top of the list for improving the appearance of the home, closely followed by installing a new bathroom and changing the flooring. The Alliance and Leicester though suggested loft conversions or fitting a new kitchen would be the best options for increasing the value of the home. In the past these have often been funded through the mortgage though this may not be as accessible now.
At the end of the day it comes down to the balance between enjoying living in a property and making it more valuable and desirable when it comes to selling. This is the dilemma every property owner faces say the Alliance and Leicester, but at the end of the day a home should be just that.
