1,000 UK homeowners were asked what they thought adds the most value to your home when looking to purchase or sell a property?

How to add value to your home…

Adding a spare room: Despite the introduction of a spare bedroom tax, the spare bedroom came top of the list of what adds the most value to your home, with 25% believing an additional bedroom adds the most value to a property. The appeal of the spare room stretches far beyond its use as an extra place to sleep and can be utilised in many ways.

Outside space: Although the British summer is often a brief one, an outside space was the next second in the list with 19% of homeowners believing it added the most value when it comes to selling a property.

The garage: The garage was the third best asset a homeowner’s property can include, with 16% of those asked thinking it added the most financial value.

En-site bathroom: Surprisingly having an en-suite bathroom in the main bedroom was only fourth, with just 13% of those asked thinking it added the most financial value.

Additional car parking: An extra car parking space completed the top five with 11% of those asked thinking space for an additional car was the most valuable asset when selling a property.

Connectivity and Activity: Good local amenities (5%), A strong internet connection (4%) and strong mobile phone signal (3%) were amongst the other assets that could increase a property’s financial strength.

Community: Just 2% of those asked felt a good community atmosphere added value to a property.
