How YOU could get that all-important sales price ‘added value’ to aid YOUR ‘later on’ home move!

As the varied range of uncertainties continue reference the wavering outlook of the property market  on through the current year…. and surely it seems on into 2024 as well! … we, at Mint, are certainly finding that more and more  homeowners - needing more vital space at home -  are investigating an  extension or renovation for now…. as opposed to moving home.

more space at home

Mint Builders' well-established, Extend Now - Move Later initiative -  running for some time now - is all about a home project for more space.... for now…. and then a ‘later on’ home move for when the market has, hopefully, become more stable, less hazardous and hopefully a less expensive, and uncertain an undertaking.


Taking this approach and undertaking, that extra space, also, most importantly, offers the considerable advantage of adding vital sales ‘price value’ to your home, to further bolster your overall situation, ready for when a home move becomes more feasible.

useful information

With regards to this ‘Extend Now - Move Later’ message, so pertinent at this time, we noticed online recently some most useful information from the always informative, HomeOwners Alliance.

how much

This was a listing of some useful ‘rule of thumb’ guidance, as to how much added ‘home price- value’ might be achieved by the various  different home improvement projects you might consider  ….read on ….and see what you think the potential might be for you and your home in these testing times. There’s all kinds of projects to consider …..


So, here’s a place to start …. what about sorting out that all important open plan-living effect at your place ….The HOA report that ….  Research found that removing an internal wall to create an open plan kitchen and diner was the best way to add value to your home….


They suggest further the following could be the case……It could cost around £3,500 to do but add £48,000 to the average London property…. or £27,000 to the average home in Dorset. Not only will this add value to your home, it should also make it more pleasant to live in, with more and more of us opting for open-plan living.

relatively simple

Best of all perhaps the HOA say…. “this is a relatively simple project that most builders can complete in under a week. Meaning, you could make almost £50k in just seven days.” Something to consider perhapsFMB) and The Guild of Property Professionals.  For more - go here too …  Garden Rooms: Where do I start? We at Mint can always talk garden rooms costs in Gloucestershire… of course!

…do up the kitchen

Next, as many may know - do up that kitchen… and add impressive price value, if you do it right!   We, at Mint, do more new kitchens probably than any other project…..and it’s a good performer on the sales price value front…. that’s for sure  …..

very positive

Highlight the HOA - Putting in a new worktop, cabinet doors or floor doesn’t have to break the bank – it costs around £4,000 on average. But, it could add £17,000 to the value of  say a London property, or the FMB and The Guild of Property Professionals found it could add around £15,000 to the average home in Cambridgeshire…… seems very positive all that wouldn’t you say?
