Gardens Boost Property Prices

As Britain enjoys its finest summer in many a year, property analysts are advising their clients to harness the power their gardens and outside space to attract the best price.

According to a recent housing survey, outdoor space leads to an average 10% hike in the value of your home, whether this space is a balcony, a garden or a shared communal space. Therefore it has become increasingly important for sellers to ensure their garden is as inviting as possible.

Hayley Cox of Ocean Finance said;

“Now summer has arrived, buyers will be able to see your garden’s full potential – so it’s a good idea to utilise it at this time of year and try to make simple improvements while the weather holds out.”

According to the survey over a third of home owners are spending more money on their garden than five years ago, whilst 14% have said they have invested in their garden in order to increase its value.
