Best ways to add value to a Lincolnshire home?
1. Window replacement
It’s widely agreed that double glazing can add around 10% to the value of a property. It really all depends on the type of property you have, as to how much value can be added on to the property price. For example, if the property is run-down and drastically in need of refurbishment then uPVC windows will improve and enhance the building and the value.
2. Conservatory Installation
On a regional scale, Zoopla have recently released data that shows conservatories are still proving a popular addition in the East Midlands area. With a high-quality conservatory installation, you can expect to add between 5%-7% onto the value of your home. Bear in mind that you may have to give up some of your garden space, which is also a popular virtue that buyers are on the look-out for here.
Looking at the top 10 search terms for buyers using Zoopla, the most popular term East Midland’s buyers are searching for is ‘garage’ closely followed by ‘parking’ in 4th. With this in mind, updating your garage door is more than likely to add value and increase your curb appeal. Or if you’re short on space, a carport installation may be the answer.
