Should I move house or improve my current home?

Home improvements can be a great option if:

  • You're happy with your current location
  • You want to avoid the hassle and cost of moving home e.g. solicitors fees, removal costs, stamp duty
  • You're finding it difficult to sell your current home
  • Your aim is to add value, improvements that add space or add most value e.g. extensions, conservatories, and loft conversions

Cosmetic improvements, such as a new kitchen, may not always add significant value to your home, but when done well they're likely to attract more buyers when you decide to sell. Consider speaking to local estate agents who may be able to offer advice on the best way to add value to your property.
