"We wanted to up-size to make room for our growing family, but needed to sell our flat first and National Homebuyers enabled us to do this quickly. They simplified the whole process of selling and enabled us to purchase our dream property! House improvements – are they worth it?"

House improvements – are they worth it?

If you’re trying to sell your home, you may wonder whether you should do some substantial maintenance or development work to make it more attractive to buyers – but will you get a return on your investment?

If your house has dated decor, an ancient central heating system or energy-draining old windows – among a host of other problems – it may not represent good value for property buyers, so raising a few standards could help make you more likely to sell.

However, you have to measure the cost of these improvements against their potential to make a real difference to the house’s sale value, as well as the personal inconvenience of undergoing work where you live. The latter may be especially hard to bear if you’ve already decided you want to live elsewhere, as you won’t enjoy the benefits.

If you don’t have savings available to make the improvements, you may consider borrowing money to do them, but do you really want to get yourself into debt (or deeper into debt) for the sake of a house you don’t want to live in?

The alternative is to sell your home in its current condition for a lower price, which isn’t ideal, but saves you the expense and stress of invasive work. If you’re struggling to sell to ordinary home buyers in the UK, there are professional home buying companies which can make you a cash offer, enabling you to move to a new home much more quickly and easily.
