10% More Like To Make Home Improvements After Brexit
Have you changed your mind about moving home recently and decided to opt for one of the best orangeries Wiltshire has to offer to extend your home instead? Then you might be one of the 10 per cent of people who have been encouraged to make home improvements since Britain left the EU in last month’s referendum rather than moving, according to a new study by Plentific.
The study, which was reported by Which?, also found that 12 per cent of people said they were less likely to move in the next three years too because of ‘Brexit’ – rising to 25 per cent in those under 25.
Another study by Plentific also found that more people were looking at their home as an investment, and were looking to put up to £50,000 into their home improvements to increase its value.
However, Which? home improvement expert, Liz Ransom, said that you need to be careful to choose the work you have done wisely to ensure that you boost the value of your home: “Adding more space, say with an extra bedroom or reception room, is likely to add more value to your property than cosmetic changes that will cost a lot of money, such as installing an entirely new bathroom or kitchen,” she said.
A conservatory or orangerie, however, will add space as well as make important aesthetic changes to the outside of your home.
