There are many reasons you might want to add value to your home.
You could be looking to sell it.
Or maybe you just want to make more of an investment in your property, so that you can sell it further down the line.
You might be thinking about becoming a landlord, and renting it out.
Whatever the case, there are lots of different ways to do it.
We’ve actually written a blog post about this before – Four Ways to Add Value to Your Home.
Here, we’re going to talk a little more about how buying and installing a DIY conservatory is the best way of doing this.
Do Conservatories Add Value?
Various experts claim a good conservatory can add as much as 5%-7% to the value of your home.
So if you have a house worth £150k, and spend £5k on a conservatory. The new value of your property could be as high as £160,500.
If you sell the home at its value, you’ll have made a £5.5k profit.
So it’s well worth looking into. For the effort of actually building a conservatory (which is quite minimal, really), you could bag yourself a little extra money.
We’re yet to find a better way of adding value to your home.
The Rough Cost of an Extension
We’d love to give you a definitive figure.
But it really depends on the exact specifications of your extension.
We want to build a conservatory perfect for you and your home. Which means it will be almost completely unique.
And that means a unique price too.
The main thing it depends on is size. Another thing is the style of the conservatory.
That being said, our Conservatory Land Prices page will give you a general idea of where costs begin.
Home Improvement Costs
Some people think that, in order to add value to your home, all you need is a few home improvements.
That might be true, but it won’t be as effective as installing a conservatory.
Depending on the specific nature of the home improvements, they won’t add as much value, and will potentially bring very little reward.
We’d certainly advise getting your house in the best possible shape before selling.
But if you really want to make a difference, building a conservatory goes a long way.
