How to add value to your home - no.3

It’s been a few weeks since my last post, we have had a very busy start to July and luckily the torrid rain hasn’t stopped activity. 

Previously I have explained how simply installing wooden floor and a new bathroom can instantly add value to a property.  Today I will explain how having your loft converted can add up to 21% to the value of your home (Nationwide Building Society)

The easiest way and probably the most cost effective way of gaining extra living space is by converting the loft.  Typically the cost of a full conversion with dormer is around £21,000 and works usually take approx 8 weeks.  The most popular option is to create an extra bedroom with an en suite bathroom.  By adding that extra bedroom and bathroom you can easily add up to £100,000 to the value of your property. 

All conversions must meet strict building regulations and it is always best to seek professional advice before starting work.
