Add space and value to your house
Most of the sales in Chelmsford over the past year were terraced properties which on average sold for £215,901. Semi-detached properties had an average sold price of £268,672 and flats averaged at £150,401.
Below are six tips on how to boost the value of your home:
1. House Extensions in Chelmsford
A well-planned extension nearly always adds value, look at house prices in your local area to gauge how much value another bedroom will add to your property.
2. Loft Conversions in Chelmsford
Loft conversions topped a recent list of value-adding projects, which experts say can increase the value of a property by an average of £21,000.
3. Garage Conversions in Chelmsford
Converting an under-utilised garage into an extra bedroom, workspace or living area adds an average of £10,000 – £15,000 to your property value.
4. Internal Changes
Consider whether you can increase the space and potential of your property by changing the internal layout instead. Removing or moving internal walls can make a big difference at a much smaller cost than an extension.
5. External Improvements
A gated driveway, brick outbuildings, rendered walls and professional paving are just a few of the things that will add value to your home.
6. Planning Permission
If you are worried about paying for planning permission – typically around £300 – and not getting approval, do a little bit of research before you submit your plan. Look at the other properties on your street, this will give you an idea of the type of projects that are likely to get planning permission as precedents may have been set by your neighbours’ developments.
