Whether you’re converting a loft, adding an extra bedroom or excavating a basement there’s no doubt that converting dead space into useful, liveable areas can add thousands of pounds to the value of your house.
Reports and surveys have revealed that a loft conversion could boost your property’s value by up to 12.5% and converting your garage could add up to £10,000 onto the value of your home.
Improving your home can make sense on every level, and you can find inspiration everywhere. You don’t even need to change the footprint of your home to add value.
Look up, down and all-around your house. Do you have a garage, loft or basement that is currently filled with unwanted furniture, sports equipment or hidden under piles of clutter? These types of areas are the perfect places to find hidden space in your home. If you’re looking to boost your home’s value then experts say that adding an extra bedroom is the best option. If clutter and storage are stopping you from making the most of the space available in your house then take action and get rid.
Clearing out years of accumulated ‘stuff’ from your house might seem like a daunting task, but the end result could prove extremely profitable. Space has overtaken location as the main concern for house hunters for the first time in years, so it makes sense to make the most of what you’ve got. It’s common to see whole bedrooms, lofts and garages soon give over to storage. Paying a mortgage for storage is perhaps the most expensive storage option you can get – especially when there are low-cost solutions available.
