Sussex Property Market View
The heatwave prompts us to spend more on our gardens
We are in the midst of what is probably the best summer in decades, with temperatures soaring and what better way to spend time, than in your garden! Research is saying that the ongoing heatwave has prompted more Brits to spend money and time on their gardens and outdoor areas.
According to a survey in Propety Reporter a poll of over 1000 people says that spend is an average of £389 on refreshing your garden with top items being furniture and bbq's. Childrens play equipment took 3rd place!
The reasoning behind this increase spend and focus was, according to the poll, to impress friends and family and to add value to their home.
A lovely looking outdoor space, whatever the size, is always appealing to buyers, so if you can spend some time and money on it whilst the sun is out, we here at GL, would highly recommend it, especially if you are considering a sale in the future. Let us know what you're doing and pop in and see our team for more advice on what else can be done to get the best selling price for your property.
