When deciding on how to add value to your home before a potential sale it can be tricky to navigate the many choices available: new kitchen or bathroom, an extension to the property, adding a driveway, new conservatory or a loft conversion.
When considering extra space and adding value to a property it is easy to see why loft conversions are fast becoming the popular choice. Not only will you get to keep your outdoor garden space but you will also add balance to your house if all or most of your living spaces are downstairs. Compare this with a house extension that when extended out can reduce the size of the garden and give a smaller increase in value compared to a loft conversion.
On the whole loft conversions can be completed in a quicker turnaround time than house extensions giving you that space to use sooner and cause less disruption to your home and routines, which is especially useful when children or elderly relatives are involved.
For loft conversions, you generally won’t need to obtain planning permission unless you are planning to raise the height of the roof and provided that you don’t make any structural changes to the exterior.
A typical loft conversion will cost £20,000+ and add an estimated 21% to the value of a property, so a very worthwhile investment for any homeowner looking to sell their home in the near future.
