Boost the Value of Your Property with a Garden Office
According to the latest research, a garden office could boost the value of your property by as much as £12,000.
The new study from MyToolShed has revealed that paying extra for a good quality shed that can be used as an office – or even designing and building your own structure that can be used as a home office/extra room separate from the house, will give your home not only a boost in value but in appeal when the time comes to sell.
A structure in the garden can be used as a space to paint, draw, make music, socialise or even turn into a fitness studio. If using it as a home office, you may even have space for a sofa bed for any guests that might stay overnight. What’s more, an outside room is often extremely popular with families with teenagers as a place for the children to get away with friends and have space of their own.
If you’re looking to add value to your home, there’s never been a better time. January was Rightmove’s busiest ever month and in February the portal regularly broke all records for the number of visitors to the site. There is a huge shortage of homes at present and demand is showing no signs of slowing down. The latest House Price Index shows that demands are 34% higher than this time last year when we were experiencing a strong pre-lockdown market for all property types.
