Adding value to your property renovation with a conservatory
Whether you are looking to renovate your own home with a view to selling it on for a profit, or you are considering buying a property to renovate for profit, it may seem like a daunting task to take on.
Even after weeks or months of work – painting, decorating, and fitting fresh carpets or flooring – you will want to know that every decision you make will result in increasing the value of your property.
If you were to ask any property renovation expert about a way to add value to your home, they would most likely tell you to add a conservatory.
Studies have shown that adding a conservatory to a house is an affordable way to create an extension that provides much-needed extra space. Conservatories are also relatively low-cost investments, that require very little effort on your part, but can add thousands of pounds in value to your house because of their attractive design and desirability.
With an average increase of 7% in value for even a modest conservatory addition, you can see why it makes a fantastic proposition for those renovating properties for profit.
By adding conservatories to properties you are renovating, you will also be ensuring that you are meeting the increasingly high demands of buyers looking to buy a turnkey home that they don’t have to do any work on themselves.
Adding a conservatory greatly improves the living space in a house. It can give an impression of an improved lifestyle by being able to relocate a dining table from the kitchen to the conservatory, or offer up a second living room that gives a busy family much-needed space for all their activities without feeling like they are living on top of each other.
The positive feelings adding a conservatory brings to a potential buyer cannot be underestimated.
As you can see, adding a conservatory can be a really profitable move for any home renovation. However, caution must be applied when it comes to choosing the right size and design for the available space that you have.
Choosing cheap and flimsy is never going to win the day. Poor-quality conservatories can be off-putting rather than attractive, with the potential buyer thinking that they will have to replace it in a couple of years’ time.
The size of the garden has to be taken into consideration too. If the property has a very small garden area, then cutting into that space with a huge conservatory is going to be devastating for a family that wants decent outdoor space for their children to play.
Try to keep the size, shape, design and style of your conservatory in keeping with the style and age of the house and you will not go far wrong.
