What to think about before a home extension…

So you’ve decided that adding a home extension to yor property as a way of adding both extra living space and increasing value. There are a few things to consider before calling in a builder, many of which will save you money and improve the finished product…

Home extension tips

  1. If you are making structural changes to add value, you should look at the current market price of your property as well as finding out its potential value following the changes.
  2. Consider whether a less radical change, such as knocking down or putting up partitioning walls, could create more value and space for less.
  3. Ask your network to recommend architects and builders, as a poor extension could mean you lose value on your property instead of increasing it. The National Federation of Builders can provide you with a list of registered builders in your area (WW Brown are on the list for Harborough!)
  4. When designing your extension, consider whether it will appeal to the average buyer’s taste – a modern extension on an old house might be ideal for you, but look odd to someone else.
  5. Think about what you’re extending – extra bathrooms, bedrooms, and extended kitchens are usually good investments. Loft extensions are also very popular, as bedrooms and en-suites can be added to give an extra level of privacy.
