How to Maximise the Value of Your Home

  1. 1. How to Maximise the Value of Your Home
  2. 2. A loft conversion is the easiest way to add extra value to your home, typically between 10 and 20%. Most lofts spaces are converted into extra bedrooms ( plus en-suite). It usually takes between 6 & 8 weeks to complete and is cheaper than moving house. Many loft conversions do not require planning permission. Tenement loft conversions are popular in Edinburgh. However the extra building regulations on a 3 or 4 storey building can make costs higher. 1. Add a Loft Conversion
  3. 3. A stunning new kitchen with a wow factor is a great selling point. It will increase the value of your home, typically around 5%. Remember however, that the price spent on a new kitchen should be in keeping with the value of the property. An expensive property will be expected to have a top of the range kitchen. A cheaper property will not get the same return on an expensive kitchen. 2. Remodel your Kitchen
  4. 4. A single storey extension can increase the value of your home by up to 20% Extending a small kitchen into a kitchen diner is currently the most popular reason for an extension. Other uses include the addition of a family room, extra living area, office space, en-suite bedroom and downstairs toilet. They don’t come cheap but a house extension can provide extra space without the cost and upheaval of moving house. 3. Add an Extension
  5. 5. A tasteful renovation is the best way to restore a home’s natural beauty. A tired, dated property is not appealing to today’s buyers. Both new and traditional properties can benefit from a renovation. In Edinburgh there are many older properties and those that retain original features in good condition can command a much higher price. In this case it is important that the renovation work is done by a builder who has the skills and expertise to retain as much of the character and charm as possible. 4. Tasteful Renovation
  6. 6. A well maintained garden is a high priority on many home buyers lists. That is why it should be given the same level of attention as other rooms in the house. Outdoor space should be landscaped by trimming back overgrown plants, hedges and grass. Installing good quality decking or a patio is always money well spent. Folding or sliding glass doors opening out to your garden will maximise the light inside your house and increase the feeling of space. Well placed exterior lighting and outdoor furniture can be used to suggest how the space can be used day and night. 5. Useable Outside Space
