The property market is always changing and with this uncertainty it isn’t always easy to retain and maximise the value of your property on the market.
So you have a property, you want to sell it, but what can you do to maximise the selling value?
We have created a list of what we think are the best solutions when it comes to adding value to your property.
If you are looking to add value to your property quickly, a roof extension is a great way to go. Although it can be high cost to convert your roof space, you can more often that not do so without the need for planning permission, speeding up the time for development significantly. The addition of a large bedroom and ensuite bathroom can add as much as 10% to your overall property value so well worth the investment.
If you have had problems selling your house and want to improve your chances of getting the right price with a more limited investment often a simple redecoration with clean and modern finishes will be all you need. You need to make sure that when your potential buyers walk in they can immediately visualise there own things in the space. Make sure you keep your furnishings simple, focus on neutral colour schemes and make sure there is sufficient storage space.
Garage or Outbuilding Conversions
If you are looking to extend and perhaps don’t want to build into your loft space, another great options is to make use of garage space and outbuildings. Renovating existing buildings can be a great way to quickly increase your available living space and will not cost as much as building a brand new extension. Depending on your planning permission you may be able to build one or two stories onto your property, increasing your living and bedroom space and adding a significant value to the property.
Whatever size your property, adding space or improving the living or bedroom space will nearly always have a positive impact on selling price. If you need help with an extension or renovation project, get in contact with us today to get started with your property.
