Create a driveway to add value to home

Britons who are searching for ways to add value to their property have been advised by an expert to construct a driveway.

Graham Lock, director and co-founder of housenetwork.co.uk, explained there is plenty of money to be made in a house sale when additional parking can be offered, particularly in areas where there is a lack of available spaces on the road. “If you have room then build a garage, in this day and age not many people actually put their cars in the garage but they do use it for all-important storage,” he continued.

The industry expert suggested there is no doubt this “fantastic benefit” will ensure the value of a home heads upwards. He went on to advise people to replace their windows if they are showing signs of wear and tear, as any energy-efficient features will be a selling point.

Consumer site uSwitch.com recently said that the country could save £6 billion a year if everybody ensured their home adhered to the latest green advice.
