New Years resolutions usually don’t last very long but with our estatent agents' home improvements suggestions for 2019, you can enjoy the long-term benefits of your property long into the year and beyond.

With the dawn of another twelve months comes reassessment over what needs tweaking in your home, so read on for our top New Years resolutions you can implement in your property.

1) Replace your windows

The windows are the eyes of your home. Whether they’ve been affected by mould and mildew or you simply want to improve the insulation of your home, replacing your windows can be a long-term investment that can make your property feel fresher; it can increase the value of your home by up to 8% too.

2) Redecorate

Why not extend “New Year, new me” to your home? With a new year comes fresh impetus, so there’s no better time to see to that bedroom you’ve been meaning to paint. Giving your home a quick makeover can help you fall in love with the property all over again.

3) Invest in a loft conversion or extension

Making the most of space is one of the biggest challenges that any homeowner faces, from clearing clutter to optimising how rooms are used. By converting a loft, building another room or even splitting an existing room, you can increase your home’s value by up to 13%, but perhaps more importantly, you can enjoy your home a little more by creating a little more space.

4) Put your home on the market

If you’re looking for a new challenge in life or your current location isn’t cutting it anymore, sometimes putting your house on the market and seeing what’s out there – as well as what you may be offered for your property – can be an exciting journey. It’s hard to know when the right time to move on is, but New Year can be help you reassess your home and what you want from where you live.
