Home improvements can surely raise the value of a home. However, knocking down a wall or putting one up is a lot of work and can change the entire appearance of a house. Plan your steps carefully and think in perspective:
- Am I going to like it next year too?
- Will a potential buyer like it?
- Is this project cost efficient and raising the value of the property?
Answer these simple questions and then start planning things directly on a piece of paper.
We found some nice ideas in an article on Property Division. The experts there suggest some additions to a house that are both a good idea of the ones living there now, and for potential buyers:
- a conservatory
- a balcony
- an open plan kitchen
- a loft conversion
Which would you choose for your home?
