Extending - 4 bed 1 bath vs 3 bed 2 bath

We are currently live in a 3 bed semi and we are in the early stages of considering a side extension which would add some dining space downstairs and a bigger master bedroom upstairs. The single bedroom (2.4m x 2m) would be next to the new bathroom, giving us the option of converting to a bathroom. The houses on the street are a mix of 3 bed townhouses, 3 bed semis, 3 bed detached (some have since extended) with a few bungalows in there. Ours is worth 179k according to Zoopla (which is pretty much the same as what two estate agents priced it at) with the detached houses maxing our at about 210k. In terms of house value, would we see a bigger increase in value extending to a 4 bed with 1 bathroom or 3 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms?

  • Hello - I would imagine so but it's often difficult to gauge by how much. A 4-bed house would certainly attract larger families who are usually willing to pay the premium for extra space. Are there any 4-beds closeby which are the same size (on a square foot basis) as what you are planning with your extension work? You may want to go on the "House prices & values" section on Zoopla to see the historical price data. Ultimately you will need to see whether the extra spend is going to be worth it.
