It is always to the curiosity of home owners, especially property developers, “How can I add value to my property?”
It is in fact not as hard as you think to increase the value of your home and there are 5 steps that will guarantee that you will be able to sell your property for more money.
Loft or Attic Conversions
One of the main ways that you can add value to your property is if you optimise the unused space in your house.
One area of your home which is often overlooked is your loft or attic space, once used just for Christmas decorations and photo albums, you can convert this area into great living space.
It has even been tested, a survey by 110 estate agents has actually shown that by converting your loft, you can add value to your property by up to 12.5%!
There is lots of inspiration available for home owners who wish to make use of their loft, for example these loft conversion specialists MPK Lofts in Bath have a gallery on this site to help you decide what you can use that extra space for.
Typical uses are bedrooms, especially bedrooms with an en-suite, as the space can be quite awkward to work with as you have low sloping roofs which leads to limited head space.
Adding An Extension Onto Your Home
Another sure-proof way of adding value to your property is by extending your house.
Many home-owners tend to extend their kitchen in order to make room for a big, bespoke kitchen diner that every buyer is looking for within their dream home.
Another great idea for an extension is a conservatory. Conservatories are a great way to connect your home to the outside, some even say they are like a winter garden.
Adding a conservatory to your home can add value to your home of up to 15% which makes for them to be a great investment choice for your home.
A New Kitchen or Bathroom
As mentioned above, every home buyer is looking for that dream kitchen when they walk into a house viewing.
Dubbed as the heart of the home, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house in which you want to focus your attention on.
No matter how big or small your kitchen is, you can alter it to make best use of the space, or yet again as mentioned before you can even extend your kitchen out.
Bathrooms are also key points in your home. You can revamp your existing bathrooms in your home or extend to add en suites onto bedrooms, en suite bathrooms are very desirable to home buyers.
Landscape Your Garden
Mature trees and a well kept garden can add value to your property of around 10 to 20%.
Mature trees add privacy to your garden and house from any possible onlooking gardens and by keeping it managed well you provide a usable space for leisure activities.
