With house prices constantly rising the need for more space for the family, or even a room to set aside for a hobby, means that moving to a new property could be too costly to pursue.
So look at your existing property – is there space to extend out into the garden? But do you really want to do that? According to a survey by valuers, when it comes to adding value to your property a loft or garage conversion gets 10 marks out of 10, where an extension rates as a seven.
So that’s a double bonus, more living space and a more attractive property to potential buyers!
