Will my value go up if I repair my property?

Good maintenance will help retain the market value of your property. Generally, your market value will not be increased for individual minor repairs such as those that follow. However, a combination of several of these items could result in an increase in your value.

  • Painting/decorating
  • Repairing or replacing roof or shingles
  • Repairing original siding
  • Repairing porches, steps or sidewalks
  • Replacing plumbing or electrical fixtures
  • Replacing the water heater
