Add Value to Your Property
Loft conversions are valuable to those who live in the home due to the extra space they provide, but also due to the fact that they have been shown to add around 20% on top of your property’s value, according to the latest Housing Market Research. This can add up to somewhere in the range of £15,000 - £35,000.
The value of your property will increase no matter what you use the converted space for. Many people even use the converted room as a space for guests or lodgers, therefore creating an extra avenue by which to make money before they even think of selling the house. This can be useful as the loft is often out of the way of the rest of the house.
In order to get the most benefit from your loft conversion, carefully work out the costs to make sure that these do not add up to more than the conversion will be adding to the value of your property. You should also not have your loft converted simply as a way to make your property more valuable – it is important that it is something that adds value to your life as well as the property for it to be truly beneficial.
