FBE’s Top Tips on Adding Value to a Property

Sometimes it is nice to revamp the entire house, change the structure or to add value to it so it is easier to sell. Often, when an individual has worked on a property to increase the value, it is advantageous for the seller and the potential buyers.

Not only will the seller create a higher asking price, but the buyer won’t have to worry about doing the place up. Find out about property prices.

Give the property some extra space and build upwardsloft-conversion

One of the most notorious ways of adding value to your property is by building upwards and converting your loft. A loft conversion adds so much extra space to a home; it can act as another bedroom or a reception room.  Having a loft conversion is also very attractive to those who are interested in buying. See: Loft Extensions.

However, loft conversions aren’t cheap and they do depend on the size of the property. For example, if you have a smaller house you can expect to pay around £15,000 – £25,000. For those with bigger properties it can hit the £40,000 mark.

Why not restyle your roof?

Rooflights are one of the most popular features of any flat roof. They provide rooms with style and tonnes of natural light, all of which is affordable. Here at FBE, we recommend EOS Rooflights as they provide exceptional energy efficiency, but insure safety on their rooflights.

Furthermore, they offer their customers a free upgrade to 32mm laminated double glazed fixed rooflights. Stronger than ever. Find out more about access hatch roof lights.

Please Note: before having skylights fitted, please contact an experienced roofer so they can check over your flat roof and ensure everything is as it should be. This is to ensure complete safety of you and your family. See: Flat Roofs

Add an extra bathroom

Your property is more likely to be selected if you have more than one bathroom. Discover what tiles are suitable for your new bathroom, click here.

However, the price for a new bathroom to be put in place cannot be said for definite as it depends on the type of tiles, fittings and fixtures that you require in your property. Despite this, a new property could cost from £2,500 to £6,000. See: Recent Property News.
