Proud Brits keen to show off home improvements

Property owners all over the UK are only more than happy to show people their latest home improvements, a new poll from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks reveals.

Whether they have opted for a garden transformation, or installed a new conservatory, people want others to see the outcome of their work.

Around 104,000 adults have gathered friends and family to unveil a new hot tub or steam room, which may be an installation that adds value when selling your own home.

Steve Reid, retail director for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, said: "It's great to see that homeowners are thinking about adding value to their properties in order to take the next step on the property ladder."

Figures from the Land Registry show that between May 2010 and last month, property prices across England and Wales fell by 2.2 per cent.

This means the average house now costs £161,823, after a 0.4 per cent decline was seen between April and May this year.
