Day to day, few of us consider the value of our house. When we’re on the lookout for a new property, the cost is one of the first things that we consider. Aside from the very lucky few, we’ve got a budget to stick to after all, and there’s no point in wasting time, and getting excited about houses that you could never afford to buy. But, once you are in and settled, you don’t think about how the changes that you are making are affecting the value of your home. You don’t believe that this is something that you need to consider if you’ve got no intention of selling anytime soon.
