Home improvement: These upgrades have the biggest effect on property value

Our homes are an investment, so when it comes to property value, the question ‘how much is my house worth?’ is one of the most frequently asked. It’s then followed by an inevitable property valuation by a series of real estate agents, which then results in most homeowners asking, ‘so how can I add value to my home?’

If you own your home, there’s a good chance you’re planning a home improvement project in the not-too-distant future.

Of course, if you are planning home improvements, you’ll be looking for reassurance that it’s worth the time and effort (not to mention the money). Will your chosen upgrade make your property more desirable, or could it even put off potential buyers if you do eventually decide to sell up?

With that in mind, Canopies UK have produced this helpful infographic detailing the impact that common upgrades and additions can have on the value of a property, based on surveys and insights from the likes of Nationwide and Phil Spencer.

So, whether you’re looking to sell or just want to add value to your home long-term by investing in it now, check out the infographic below to see some of the most popular (and proven) ways to increase your property’s value and boost its selling power:
