Add value to your home – Easy as 123!


Before you put your property on the market, you could look to add value to your home. This could help you to achieve a higher sale price which, in turn, could assist you with your next purchase. Working with Nelsons estate agents in Shoreditch is a great way to present your property in the most appropriate manner, but if you really want to wow those potential buyers and increase the value of your home, here are some steps to bear in mind.

Some improvements are consistently worthwhile
There is no need to be innovative. There are many tried and tested ways that can be relied upon. Research undertaken by Nationwide suggests:

• A loft conversion or extension can improve property value by 20%
• Adding an extra bedroom to your property can improve property value by 10%
• Adding an extra bathroom can improve property value by 5%

Using these statistics you can envisage that more space equals an improved value. Nationwide also found that increasing floor space by 10% usually leads to the asking price of a home rising by 5%. However, converting a double bedroom into a two bedroom home can often add as much as 11% value to a property. This means that it isn’t just about adding space, it is about using the available space in the most effective way.

There are many ways to create space at home
It can be easy to think that the only way to create space is to convert or add an extension, and this can often be beyond the budget of many homeowners. However, some lateral thinking can create space without this outlay and if you need tips or guidance on how to make more room at your property, call on the services of the leading Shoreditch estate agent.

If you are not in a position to add more space to your property, there are other ways in which you can raise the value of your home. Many businesses and homeowners have found that it pays to be environmentally friendly and if you can make your home more energy efficient. You’ll find that this can positively impact the value of your home.

Given the continually rising energy bills that homeowners have to pay each month, it stands to reason that a home which helps people pay less on energy each month will be more attractive. Investing in energy efficient solutions provides short and long term benefits for homeowners but if you are considering moving in the near future, go green and potentially boost your property value.

The wide range of energy efficient solutions should provide homeowners with affordable and suitable options to boost the attractive nature of their home. If you are keen to learn more about creating an environmentally friendly home that has an increased value, be sure to call on Nelsons estate agents.
