The UK property market has seen turbulent times over the last few years. Many of us have become accustomed to UK property being the biggest investment we could ever make, but sadly many have seen gains wiped out by falling house prices since 2008. Finding a quick buyer is much harder these days so the decision to move or improve is of more importance to many of us.
What should you do?
Look after your property! It still is (probably) your single biggest investment/ asset. Keeping your property well-maintained, adding new features and modernising your home will mean your home is more desirable when you do wish to sell and the estate agent is going to place a higher value on it if it requires little or nothing spent on it to put it into top quality repair.
Moving is expensive! Stamp Duty Land Tax, removal costs, estate agents' selling fees and solicitors to pay - maybe even storage to consider.
By improving your home (little by little, and as you can afford) you will enhance its value, but you'll also enjoy the improvements you make while you live there.
