Can a home extension increase the value of my property?

As we continue to face the ongoing cost of living crisis, finding ways to increase the value of your property has become more crucial than ever. One option worth considering is expanding your home with a high-quality extension. Adding an extension can increase usable space, improve functionality, and enhance kerb appeal, ultimately increasing your property’s value by up to 20%.

At Trade Price, we specialise in providing innovative DIY home extension kits for houses of all sizes and shapes. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of the four main reasons why investing in an extension is a fantastic way to boost the sale price of your home.

1. Increases Usable Space in Your Home

The size of your home is usually proportional to its value. Expanding your property gives you space for an extra bedroom, bathroom, or even a gym or playroom. This is especially appealing to homeowners with large families and a need for more space.

2. Enhances the functionality of your home

A home extension can enhance the practicality of your property, making it a more convenient place to live and work. For instance, the rise of working from home has led to many people needing a dedicated space to work from. Turning your new room into a home office will appeal to working professionals and drive up the price of your home.

3. Improves Kerb Appeal

An extension can give your home a modern facelift, improving its visual appeal and impressing potential buyers. This can significantly boost its kerb appeal and, in turn, its value.

4. Opens Up Opportunities for Rental Income

Adding an extension to your property can increase the number of bedrooms and provide a way for homeowners to earn rental income. This potential for extra revenue can make the property more desirable to landlords and investors, boosting its overall value.
