Increase the value of your property

If you want to increase the value of your property, then adding square footage is a smart choice. Whether you’re planning to work your way up the property ladder or simply want to make more of the home you love, rationalising, converting and extending your living space is a certain way to increase the value of your property.
 
 
Convert your garage
 
If you only use your garage for storage then why not convert it into the stylish kitchen diner you’ve always wanted or a guest bedroom with en-suite? Adding flexible ground floor living space can add up to 15% to the value of your home.
 
 
Turn your house into flats
 
This is a popular option in London and can help you maximise the value of your property. You’ll also benefit from a rental income in the short term if your home is suitable for conversion. Expect to add up to 30% to the value of your property.
 
 
Add an en-suite bedroom with a loft conversion
 
The loft is the ideal space to create a master suite with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. This type of conversion rarely needs planning permission and can be delivered with minimal disruption to your home but can add 15% to the resale value.
 
 
Extend your kitchen
 
Extending the kitchen into the side return is becoming an increasingly popular option for period properties. Not only can you add at least 15% to the value of your home, but a single story extension will fall under permitted development and can look stunning when you add roof lights and bifold doors.
 
 
Get planning permission
 
Surprisingly enough, you can add 10% to your resale value simply by applying for planning permission for major improvements. At South East Builders, we offer a comprehensive service, including full support with planning, architectural and structural services.
