How Can An Extension Increase The Value Of Your Home?

Life is full of changes and, as a homeowner, there may come a time when you think about upping sticks and moving elsewhere. Whilst you may not be planning this in the near future, if it is something you find yourself dreaming of from time to time, it can’t hurt to consider.

One aspect of your home that may cross your mind is its value. Moreover, you may wonder if there is any way to increase this, to get the most out of your home when you do sell. Fortunately, there are many ways to increase property value, one of which is through extending your home.

Here is our guide to the benefits of a home extension.


One of the many benefits of a home extension, no matter the size, is the added functionality it gives to your property. Whether it is an added master bedroom with an en-suite or a bit of additional living space, an extension adds a world of opportunity to your home.

Extra space is always welcome, and many estimates suggest that extending your home can add up to 20% to the value of your property.


Curb Appeal

In addition to the added functionality and living space that an extension provides, it will also increase the curb appeal of your home. Additions to your home can make it appeal much larger from the outside while also improving the amount of natural light and feeling of roominess for prospective buyers.

Though you may not be thinking of selling right now, an extension is a great long term investment. Not only will it increase your home’s value, but it will also make it a more pleasant space for you and your family.
