How To Add Value To A Property

As the housing market is currently booming now is the perfect time to look at ways you can add value to your property and that is what we are going to discuss in this blog!

Loft Conversion

A loft conversion has a potential added value of up to 15% so an extra bedroom with an en suite bathroom is going to make quite a big difference. The majority of lofts are able to be converted, however, to be safe getting an architect or builder to review your planning permissions is important. There are different types of loft conversions, so you need to choose the one that is going to suit your property the best. Having an architect to help y=with your conversion means you will have a wealth of knowledge on your side.

Garage Conversion

As well as a loft conversion, being able to add extra space in your home is going to give it the highest possible added value. So, another option is converting your garage. If your garage is unused or it may just be used to keep a car in it, then turning it into a living space could make more sense.. In many occasions converting a garage will already be classed as a permitted development, however it is always good to check with the local planning authority which is something we can take care of for you. When having the garage converted it will need to comply with many regulations such as, drainage, electrics, walls and more.

Garden Space

In towns and cities garden space can be very limited. So, making the most of it can add value by up to 10%. Decking or patio is a great option if you don’t want to have lawn put down as it gives you somewhere to add a seating area. When you have potential buyers looking around you want to make it look like somewhere that can be utilised really well and a space they van enjoy. Adding colour to a garden can always be a win along with some garden furniture.

When selling a property, you want to make a good first impression as you only get one chance and the added extensions or conversions are going to add an overall value to your property.
