Things you can do to improve the outside and aesthetic value can add a great deal to your property. Remember first impressions really do count.

Imagine you’re the customer for a second, looking for your dream house. You’ve seen one online that you’re really excited about viewing and you’re thinking to yourself this could be the one, then you pull up to it and it looks shabby.

You have a look inside, the space is great, you like the room sizes and the window size, but they’re just not doubled glazed.
