It's official a DIY Conservatory can add £9240 in value to your home,according to the HSBC annual Home Improvement Survey.The survey warns that many big DIY projects are failing to add as much value to homes as a year ago and may even devalue the price of your home.
The HSBC survey found that a loft conversion would boost a properties value by £16,152 significantly less than the £20,876 that estate agents estimated in 2011.
Part of the problem is that most building materials are rapidly increasing it price.The typical loft conversion cost varies from £20,000 to £30,000 and that the average gain of £16,152 could leave many home owners with a loss.
Peter Dockar, head of mortgages at HSBC, said: 'Homeowners should think carefully about the type and extent of any home improvement works they are planning. Those which enhance quality of life while retaining broad appeal should be favoured over more individually-styled alterations.'
So it's good to know that a DIY conservatory dovetails quiet nicely with Mr Dockar's comments.A DIY conservatory can be bought from as little as £1750 from us and the conservatory will have both a strong life style impact and give the home owner a nice boost in the value of their home.
