Many homeowners are now keen to push the price of their property up and get on the property ladder. We have created a list on how you can add value to your home. Our steps include everything from extensions to a lick of paint.
Turn your loft into a new room
The easiest way to create an extra bedroom and bathroom is through a loft conversion, therefore immediately pushing your home into the higher price bracket. It is important to consult with a builder where they will be able to advise you on floor joists and other vital information. See: planning permission process.
If your property is suitable, you could see an increase of £40,000 onto the asking price.
Add £40,000 onto your property value with a garage conversion
Do you have a garage attached to the house, yet simply don’t use it? You can easily convert the garage into living space. The process of converting a garage isn’t expensive, yet can increase the value massively. Find out more.
Adding another bedroom with an ensuite can add £40,000, however if this doesn’t suit the property layout, you can turn it into another reception room, adding £20,000.
How can you make this living space even more attractive?
Many garage conversions are built with a flat roof, therefore giving it immense potential for an airy, light and spacious room.
Making a room feel as if it’s bigger than what it is can be completed through large, glass doors and with flat roof skylights. Rooflights for a flat roof can begin at an affordable price of £599 and come in an array of designs including fixed, opening, walkon and circular. Select your rooflight.
Plan a Renovation or New Build Development
If you’re looking for a challenge or you are an experienced property developer, you could plan to build new homes.
In the last 10 years it’s become popular for people who have a larger house with a big outside space to sell off the extra land for a new house or flats to be built.
