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.
Better roofing solutions
Having a loft conversion may mean you need the help of a roofing professional as the structure will be likely to change. Saffron Walden Roofing can completely rebuild your roof if need be.

De-clutter your property
One thing that many prospective buyers are often put-off by is the amount of clutter and extra belongings you have in your home. This can be a huge drawback for many homeowners looking to sell their property as it makes it far more difficult for potential buyers to picture themselves living there.
We recommend hiring a rubbish clearance agency to remove and dispose of the furniture that you don’t need. This will open up more space for buyers to plan the room layout in their head. Rubbish clearance costs.
If you do this and have new images uploaded, you should see, on average, a 15% increase in interest of your home.
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.
You can also purchase a garage door opener. If you purchase from Erreka Automatic Doors, you will receive the following:

- Galvanised steel guide with chain drag system.
How can you make this living space even more attractive?
Many garage conversions are built with a flat roof, therefore giving it the 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.
