How Much Value Does a Garden Building Add to Your Property?

Are you considering a garden building? Perhaps you’re weighing up the pros and cons of a garden room and wondering, “do garden buildings add value?” The short answer to this question is that yes, a high quality garden building can add value to your property, in certain circumstances. Here’s how.

Do garden buildings add value

Increased space

 A garden room will give you increased floor space in a relatively short amount of time and without too much hassle. Whilst alternatives such as an extension or loft conversion may give you more room, the downsides are that you may need to obtain planning permission, the work can be disruptive, and it can take a long time for the project to be completed.

A garden building, on the other hand, usually does not require planning permission and can be installed quickly, with minimal disruption. A garden building can be used in a variety of ways. Whether it’s extra space to relax, a games room, a gym, a craft studio or an office is up to you.

Boosted saleability

If you’re wondering, how do garden buildings add value to a house, perhaps consider who might be the potential buyers if you were to sell your property.

Working from home is commonplace now. A garden office room provides the physical and mental distance to give a perfect balance between work and home life. And home office space is much sought after by new home buyers.

Any extra space is a bonus these days. A garden workshop, a games room or a gym, anything in addition to your main living space will always boost saleability.

The wow factor

Do garden buildings add value? The answer is that they can, but we would stress that the garden building needs to be of high quality to appeal to your potential buyers.

A poorly built or badly designed garden room will have the adverse effect and put buyers off.

A well-constructed and beautifully designed garden room will give your property the wow factor. This will boost the interest in your property leading to a higher number of viewings and a quicker sale.
