Whether you need to add space for your growing family or are considering selling your property within a few years, there are several improvements which will add value to a house. While it will require spending money to have the improvements done, some of them can add significant value when it’s time to sell your home. Here are three improvements to consider.
As children grow or another child arrives, some families can create more room for their brood by converting their loft into an additional bedroom. The extra space can become an older child’s room or a guest bedroom. For a smaller loft, expect to pay about £15,000 for the conversion, but it can add about ten percent more to the value of your house.
With a growing family, an extra bathroom can help control some of the traffic in the morning and prevent more than a few squabbles. If the bedroom occupied by you and your spouse doesn’t have an en-suite, considering adding one. Not only would it be more convenient for you, but most home buyers want en-suites when searching for properties to buy. While it can cost £2,500 to £6,000 to add one, it will add about six percent more value.
An open plan living area is highly desirable for most people looking for homes to buy. If the walls blocking in your kitchen and living areas are not structural, consider having them taken down by Cheshire builders. Your home will immediately feel more spacious, and this improvement can add another six percent to the value of your home, which for most homes is an average of £18,000.
There are many improvements you can make to your home to create more space for a growing family and add value to your property if you decide to sell it and move elsewhere.
