Extension, Conservatory & Orangery Specialist in Colchester | Wise Property Investments
Here at JSC Plastics & Construction Ltd, we understand that a house represents the biggest investment most people will make. Having put so much money into the purchase, it stands to reason that ongoing investments will only increase the resale value for a future sale, whenever that time may come. Homeowners have numerous options when it comes to increasing the value of their property, but we specialise in the most lucrative. These include home extensions, conservatories, orangeries, roof lanterns and garage conversions.
We take great pride in our reputation as an extension, conservatory and orangery specialist in the Colchester area. Our customers know their project remains in the safest of hands from start to finish and, come completion, they will have an even more valuable property investment.
Home extensions have long held status as one of the most popular and lucrative forms of property investment. However, the most successful take into account the ceiling value of the neighbourhood at hand as well as researching what extensions in the area have done well. For example, flat roofed extensions with roof lanterns perform better than those without.
In the medium- to long-term, well thought-out home extensions make ideal investments. While it’s impossible to put an exact figure on how much value an extension will add, certain statistics do help. According to Nationwide, a double bedroom and en suite has the potential to add up to 23% in value. Zopa discovered that the average return on investing in home extensions was 71%.
Conservatories and Orangeries
As a conservatory and orangery specialist, we build these additions to the highest specifications. Due to large amounts of glazing and roof lanterns, these additional living spaces create a warm, cosy environment year-round, something that appeals to most prospective buyers in Colchester. When acting as a segue between the interior and exterior, conservatories and orangeries can make the difference in finalising a sale.
Like any reputable conservatory and orangery specialist, we make it clear that added value depends on multiple factors. In order to maximise resale value, homeowners need to utilise cutting edge glazing in the roof or roof lanterns, achieve a balance between house and garden and, where possible, choose a bespoke option that complements the existing home. Generally speaking, conservatories and orangeries increase resale value by at least 5%.
If you live in an area of Colchester with ample off-road parking, converting your garage offers a lucrative opportunity for investment. Again, like home extensions, conservatories and orangeries, the final figure for how much garage conversions add varies, but estimates suggest creating a bedroom with en suite facilities can add approximately 20% to an average home. Another popular option, a playroom, adds around 10% in value.
Garage conversions have the added benefit of not eating into garden space. As gardens remain a highly appealing feature for buyers, this can also help to sway a decision.
