Improve and remove the need to move!

There seems to be a pattern arising currently with regard to families who are looking to improve their existing homes rather than move to a new home due to financial circumstances. After the recession hit the UK many people have been forced to tighten up their budgets and make cut backs on their little luxuries.

Moving house can prove extremely costly and so rather than moving many are choosing to improve their existing property by making some home improvements. In comparison home improvements could prove more cost effective and Twistfix have a range of home improvement kits to help you along the way:

Research which has been carried out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has backed this trend up, 48% of chartered surveyor estate agents stated that because of the slump in sales within the housing market people just choose to improve.

In Northern Ireland it was found that 75% of homeowners were actually improving rather than moving and within the West Midlands 71% were improving rather than moving. these are two of the most depressed market areas which could explain the high percentages but still across the board throughout the UK people simply are staying in their homes.

In comparison to the depressed property market areas, London which is a more lively market are even seeing people stay in their homes and improve although this could be due to the high property prices.

44% of surveyors reported that adding a new bedroom would add the most value to a home
18% of surveyors reported that adding a new bathroom or kitchen would be the next to add value

The cost to improve your home could easily be regained through the increase in property value – the value that you add to your home through the new improvements.
