The Power of the Bedroom
If you know without doubt the value added to a property in your area by adding a bedroom, then you are
well positioned to find the style of property that will take an extra bedroom and bring you significant profit.
In Peterborough, where Ilive, the bedroom price is about Â£10k. That means that a 2 bed flat/house will
cost about Â£75k, a 3 bed house will cost about Â£85k and a 4 bed house will be about Â£95k. That
means the bedroom price is Â£10k. If Ineed to spend more than this to add a bedroom then it isnâ€™t
worth doing if my intention is to sell the property.
Down the road in Cambridge however the bedroom price is about Â£40k to Â£50k, so the same
renovation in which Iadd a bedroom would net me a significant profit. That is why at the moment, when
considering a flip (buy, renovate and sell) you need to find more expensive areas.
You can also extend a property to add rooms, and in the more expensive areas this will significantly
increase the value of your property.
Get to know how much an added bedroom increases the price of a property in your area â€“ there will be
cheaper areas and more expensive areas â€“ the flips always work best where the bedroom price is
higher. Zoopla will show you the breakdown of average prices for each number of bedrooms.
