Creating extra space, adding further bedrooms and ensuring a full central heating system is in place are the most effective ways home owners can add value to their property, according to, the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.

Recent research has discovered that by creating a ten per cent increase in floor space, between five and seven per cent can be added to the price of a house. To ensure that all building work is carried out correctly and maximum value added, suggests home owners employ recommended builders to do the job.

Furthermore, if homeowners opt to add a new bedroom altogether, the return on investment has the potential to be even greater. Indeed, if it is a bedroom and a bathroom, it is predicted that it could increase the value of a property by up to 20 per cent.

Ottokar Rosenberger, Sales and Marketing Director of, commented: “There are many ways in which home owners can add value to their property but, some add more value than others. Location is a prime factor in determining the overall value of the property but, with limited options due to the housing market, creating extra space, adding a further bedroom and ensuring that a home has full central heating are great ways to add value to properties.”

It is claimed that 91 per cent of homes now have full central heating and a home without it can decrease its value by nine per cent. It is therefore suggested that home owners hire recommended heating engineers to ensure that they have a full and efficient central heating system in place.

Whether seeking a recommended bathroom fitter, local builders or heating engineers, can assist home owners who are looking to add value to their properties, with quotes from tradesmen spanning over 25 separate trades.
