Happy Customers

"National Homebuyers' staff were friendly and helpful and we went on to agree a sale with them; they even allowed us to change the completion date at the last minute to secure the property of our dreams."

Mr & Mrs M, Sandown, Isle of Wight

"So, what can I say? National Home Buyers….were fantastic, yes, they made a good chunk of money on my house but you know what? They dug me out of a hole where I had given up hope of anything good happening. From start to finish they were very helpful, I must say though that Laura […]"

House improvements – are they worth it?

If you’re trying to sell your home, you may wonder whether you should do some substantial maintenance or development work to make it more attractive to buyers – but will you get a return on your investment?

If your house has dated decor, an ancient central heating system or energy-draining old windows – among a host of other problems – it may not represent good value for property buyers, so raising a few standards could help make you more likely to sell.

However, you have to measure the cost of these improvements against their potential to make a real difference to the house’s sale value, as well as the personal inconvenience of undergoing work where you live. The latter may be especially hard to bear if you’ve already decided you want to live elsewhere, as you won’t enjoy the benefits.


If you don’t have savings available to make the improvements, you may consider borrowing money to do them, but do you really want to get yourself into debt (or deeper into debt) for the sake of a house you don’t want to live in?

The alternative is to sell your home in its current condition for a lower price, which isn’t ideal, but saves you the expense and stress of invasive work. If you’re struggling to sell to ordinary home buyers in the UK, there are professional home buying companies which can make you a cash offer, enabling you to move to a new home much more quickly and easily.

If you’d like to sell your house to cash property buyers, ask National Homebuyers for advice, as we guarantee to buy any home. Call 08000 443 911 or request a call back to find out how much you could get for your property.
