Expert researchers from BillyOh.com have revealed five things that might boost the price of a UK house beyond its four walls - how many of these have you got?

Even the most unassuming garden shed, log cabin or similar outdoor building could add thousands of pounds to the value of your home, particularly if its properly looked after.
A fruit tree or two at the bottom of the garden are not only low maintenance and beautiful features to enjoy looking at, they could provide you with delicious healthy snacks and add value to the house too.
A simple pond could easily put a few quid onto the value of a home as it sets the garden apart from the neighbours and may help big-hearted Brits welcome wildlife too.
Properties that have a stone patio or wooden decking installed in their backyard could see their value to rise by four figures as a result.
Many British households will be equipped with a movement-sensing outdoor light designed to deter unwanted intruders like burglars and foxes, but additional garden lighting that allows homeowners to appreciate their backyard at all hours could boost the propertys value.
