You Can Add Value to Your Property in Edinburgh Through Simple Home Improvements

By Calum Rendall Subscribe to RSS | March 17th 2012 | Views:

In Edinburgh, the property prices and interest rates are continuously getting higher and higher with the passage of time. Due to this people are choosing to invest in their existing property to maximize the enjoyment and also to add value to it instead of spending large sums of money on estate agents fees, mortgage, council tax, deposit, legal surveys and moving out costs.

If you want to add value to your property then it is very essential that you carry out the right kind of improvements. You must keep in mind that the improvements over the property must be carried out in the appropriate manner, as poor quality of improvements might actually reduce the value of your property in Edinburgh or any part of the world.

Considering the location

It is imperative that you must always carry out the improvements in accordance with the neighborhood and value of the property. Let suppose if you are spending £30,000 on a kitchen, in an area where maximum selling price is only £140,000 then it would be a huge mistake. Hence you must never extend a property outside its locality.

The best technique to start is always by having regard of the needs of targeted buyers. Consequently if you are looking for the families then there is no need of transforming two rooms into one, as two rooms is a much suitable option for them. You can also get directions from a local estate agent.

Adding space

Adding space to your house is one of the best ways of increasing value. Loft conversion is one of the most popular ways which increases the value of property up to 20%. Before adding space to your property, first you have to consider that extra accommodation is beneficial for your property or not. You should always try to have the right kind of roof for it.

Saleable improvements

There are certain kinds of improvements that will not add appreciably to the value of your property but importantly they will make it more saleable. Examples include, installing a security system or improving a period feature of the property.

Adding a bathroom

You can add value to your property if you affix an extra washroom to it. Suppose if you have extra rooms in the property then converting a bedroom into a bathroom would be an excellent idea. For example, if you have a five bedroom house with a single bathroom then converting it into four bedrooms and two bathrooms will add value to your property.


An excellent extension which balances your property in every possible way can add significant value to the property. Glass extensions are very popular now days. Extensions are easier to put together with the property, and these are affordable as well.
