More and more British homeowners are making improvements on their homes, spending an estimated total of £5.6 billion in 2012, rather than selling and moving into a new one. The exact reasons for doing so have not been established but the Herald Scotland notes that it may be due to the unstable economy.
One industry expert says that making home improvements puts less stress and financial strain on homeowners, thus seeming to be the better option, especially for those who are looking to save money. Homeowners can find themselves with more savings if they opt to have eco-friendly plumbing fixtures installed by reliable plumbers from Crawley.
Making such home improvements may also benefit homeowners who decide to sell their houses somewhere down the road. Carrying out renovations, making necessary repairs and installing more efficient fixtures can help boost property value, allowing for the home to sell at a better price.
