Since the credit crunch, the price of UK properties has slowly dwindled and it’s only in the last couple of years that they’ve finally started to gain more value. Adding value to your home is easier than it sounds, you don’t have to knock a wall down or add an extra room to add significant value to your property.
Something as small as changing your carpets or painting the walls can increase your house value by a surprising amount. As you can see from our new infographic below – Rewarding Renovations – the price of a house can be increased by several means.
You can invest in roof insulation and solar panels for a greener home, adding up to a staggering 14% more value. Or perhaps you’d like to convert your loft or garage into a living space, converting your loft can add £54,000+ to your home and a garage conversion can add upwards of £26,000. A quick tidy up of your garden can help to increase your properties value by 5%, a worthwhile investment in the long run. So whatever your reason to renovate, there is no time like the present to do it!
