This article explains how over two thirds (68%) of home owners say kerb appeal was important when looking for a new home. This included a well-looked after  front garden, pathways and fences as well as a well-painted frontage. Other significant features included clean gutters, concealed wheelie bins and a brightly-lit exterior. An attractive front door also featured lower down the list.

The Home Owners Alliance has teamed up with the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), who estimated that tidying the  front garden would cost  as little as £150, other jobs like fixing broken tiles on a roof from £190, and a front drive or pathway approx £100-£500. So in total just a few hundred pounds can improve your home’s kerb appeal and make it more attractive to buyers.

“However, it’s essential that homeowners work with a reputable and experienced builder to make sure they don’t end up creating more work and expense for themselves in the long run. The last thing you want when trying to sell your home is a messy building site for weeks on end. Always ask around for a recommendation from a friend or family member. If that’s not possible, the Federation of Master Builders free ‘Find a Builder’ service locates independently vetted and inspected, professional builders in your local area.”
