Homeowners can no longer rely on rising property prices to add value to their homes. BuySigns Ltd director Matt Salter explains how a simple home improvement can achieve this whilst making your house more saleable in the future.

First impressions last and we believe this is often an oversight when it comes to House Signs.

Recent research has shown that, over the last six months,

6.1 million people were planning to paint and decorate

2.7 million were aiming to fit a new bathroom

1.6 million were hoping to fit a new kitchen

1.26 million were planning an extension.

In addition, 720,000 wanted to build a new conservatory; 645,000 were going to spend money on new windows or double-glazing; 420,000 needed a new roof; and 310,000 were planning a loft conversion.

Money well spent

But what does it all cost and what DIY spending is money well spent?

Building a garage or off-road parking bay is the top investment to increase your property’s worth, according to valuation experts. Pound for pound we beg to differ.

With the average garage costing between £15,000 - £40,000 and the average contemporary or traditional house sign costing between £30 - £100 we spotted a clear opportunity for homeowners to make a small investment for what essentially amounts to a large visible area on the front of any house.

The website experience

BuySigns Ltd have developed a unique facility which enables the end user to choose a material, shape, size, colour and font. The text and numbers of any sign can be personalised which is then displayed on screen to give a graphical representation of the sign prior to purchase.

"Since the website launch in July, public response to both the product and the website has been very encouraging with sales increasing well beyond that forecasted, explains BuySigns director Matt Salter.

Two unexpected sales channels have emerged from b2b sales which is an exciting side to the business. We have been approached on numerous occasions from both businesses seeking office contemporary signs and developers seeking house sign solutions for new housing developments."
