Adding value to my property.

I am having a loft extension where there will be two bedrooms. Will having two en suite add more value to the property than one shared bathroom?

  • En-suite bathrooms are horrible little things that are too small to enjoy and diminish the size of a bedroom. Personally I would have one less bedroom and make a good sized bathroom.

  • Hi Muffty, I've done a blog post in a similar fashion to what you're asking I'll post the body of text below and let me know if you need anymore help! Of course most people are looking to buy a property are looking for something in good condition, spending money on a property certainly can help to sell a property faster and also get a better price. However, you have to be very careful what you spend the money on whether that’s appropriate to the property so for example, in general adding a swimming pool to a small mid-terrace house may not only not improve the value but could actually decrease it. So the best thing to is to speak to some local estate agents if you’re thinking about improving your property, to find what they recommend, might be best. Things like double glazing, improving kitchens or bathrooms are normally pretty sure fire ways of increasing the value in line with what you spend but as I say do check carefully with a local expert. Hope that helps mate! Regards, Jonathan :-)

  • En suite definately add value, as do family bathrooms, also a shared but joined Bathroom/Shower room adds value. Most people are stupid and so on that basis given the choice of adding an on suite and having no wardrobe space, then by all means add the on suite, nobody or very few will even notice the lack of space, but will notice the on suite. What do I know, well, 30yrs property developing helps here. Mr Spence
