How Much Value Will a Garden Building Add to My Home?

You may find yourself questioning whether a garden room will add value to your home should you decide to sell on, and we are here to answer that question!


Garden buildings are a unique and cost-effective space creating solution that can not only add value to your home, but can also come as a unique selling point.


But how much value exactly does a garden room add? Read on to find out!




 

A garden building adds value to your home


Not only does a garden room attract more buyers to your property, but a high-quality garden room can also boost the value of your home by 5% to 15%, depending on the quality of the build, and therefore covering the cost of the garden building.


A poor quality building is likely to put off potential buyers, so choosing the right supplier is key. That’s where Olympian Garden Buildings come in.


At Olympian Garden Buildings, they are passionate about creating exquisite garden buildings that will provide you with the additional storage or living space that you crave.


From small log stores and sheds, to large workshops, summerhouses, contemporary spaces and fully bespoke garden rooms, they can manufacture any size, style and design to meet your specific needs.


 

A garden building has the WOW factor


Sometimes it is hard to put a number against the value of add-ons to your home. But having a garden building is often a surprise for prospective buyer and will create more interest in your property should you decide to sell. It can help move your property faster and that in itself is pretty valuable.


The higher number of viewings tends to mean a quicker sale, and as a result, the asking price is normally met or exceeded as potential buyers don’t want to miss out.

Get increased floor space with a garden building


Garden buildings allow you to add floor space to your home in a quick, hassle-free way.


If you’re looking to create a home office, gym or art studio then removing a bedroom or other conventional room in your home is not the most effective way to do it. A garden building is a completely separate, new space that offers privacy and full flexibility to be transformed into anything your heart desires.


And as someone who is renovating her home through a kitchen extension, I know just how complicated, lengthy and expensive it is to build a rear or side extension and how intrusive it can be in your day to day life.


Whilst a garden room might not add as much value to your property as a traditional home extension or loft conversion, the value for money vs increased value is often much better than traditional extension alternatives.




 

Attract business owners or people that work from home


Having a dedicated office space is fast becoming a must have for prospective buyers. Having a home office in the garden away from the house can now make or break a property deal.


As more employers offer flexible working including working from home arrangements, it is important to have a dedicated space for work without taking up precious space inside the house, like a bedroom.


 

Attract Fitness - Fans & Hobbyists


An at-home gym is an investment for your home and for your health. Fitness conscious buyers will see the benefit of a dedicated space to focus on their goals, without interrupting (or being interrupted by) other family members.


For hobbyists, having a quiet space away from the home to practise their craft and store equipment often makes a garden room their favourite part of their home.

Our conclusion


A garden room is an attractive extra that will add value to your home by up to 15%, and can help you sell your home faster if you choose to. It provides the extra space for working from home without compromising space inside the main building. It is also providing a place to escape to to take up a hobby or exercise.
