A survey by the National Association of Estate Agents revealed that property extensions and loft conversions, especially those that make provision for an extra bedroom, are the two best modifications for gaining optimum value. Property renovations increase market prices on Kidlington homes too, which is great news for investors, letting companies and landlords.
This page looks at just some of the ways we protect your property and your investment.
Loft conversions are probably the simplest and the most effective way to add value to any home in the Kidlington area. They automatically put around 10% on the market value and the beauty of a conversion is that, unlike a property extension, it won’t eat into existing space. In fact, most homeowners already underuse their current attic space anyway.
Loft conversions are the least disruptive way to add extra room to a home because our team does most of the work from the outside. This keeps mess inside the home to a minimum.
While loft conversions aren’t exactly the same as property renovations, our builders can still transform attic space at the same time as they refurbish the rest of the home. Because we hire across multiple trades, we even handle the joinery, plumbing and electrical work.
Garage and Basement Conversions
Garage conversions also add space and value to properties. The potential is enormous if you have a garage attached to the home and can add as much as 20% to the market value when you finally decide to sell. Again, these conversions aren’t property renovations as such but, when included as part of a refurbishment project, offer a fantastic return on investment.
Adding a basement conversion rarely means giving up any of your indoor space. DJT Builders (Oxfordshire) Ltd finds that customers in Kidlington are less inclined to go with this type of conversion because it usually means moving out of the home for a period of time. There is an upside, of course, in the sharp rise in market value once we complete the conversion.
Like loft conversions, a revitalised garage or basement will change the way you live and still makes a significant difference to the overall value of your property portfolio.
A new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom isn’t just good for the soul. Each is another great way to add value to a Kidlington home. Our builders undertake one and two-storey property extensions as design-and-build specialists who manage the entire project from concept to completion. DJT Builders (Oxfordshire) Ltd also builds extensions to architect specifications.
Based on the specifications of our own designs or those of your architect, if you have one, we often build property extensions without the need for planning permission or approvals.
Because property extensions classify as a new build, we support our workmanship with insurance-backed NHBC warranties. This is fantastic news for homeowners in the local Kidlington area, and guarantees them the build they want with an option of another builder coming in to finish the job if they aren’t 100% satisfied with the services we’ve provided.
Thankfully, this is never the case. Our builders comply with all legislative trade standards and happily return to rectify snags without making the customer feel awkward about it.
Investment into older or dilapidated properties makes good financial sense for some of our more specialist customers and clients in the Kidlington area – especially letting agents, local landlords and those looking to build their own investment portfolio.
