Garden Offices ‘Could Boost Home Value By £30k’

Home offices have become increasingly popular since working from home took off during the pandemic, so much so that having a separate study could significantly increase the value of a property. 

Since national lockdown was announced in March 2020 and those who could work from home were forced to do so, office workers have been less than inclined to go back to the old way of doing things. 

In fact, most people have set up an office space in their house one way or another. Having a distinct room for working has its obvious advantages, including helping to create a better work-life balance. 

That is why lots of homeowners have opted to build extensions or transform garages into offices.

The Express reported that David Wilson Homes said there has been growing demand for garden buildings recently, as a result of high interest rates and the cost-of-living crisis. 

Consequently, this has meant homeowners are unable to afford to purchase bigger homes and are choosing to add to their existing property instead. 

Curchods estate agents in Weybridge agreed, with its managing partner Grant Letts saying having a small garden studio can add £30,000 to a property.

He also noted these extra buildings “may help your property sell faster”, which is appealing to sellers in this difficult market. 

There are many ways homeowners can add offices to their homes, from building a garden study to extending into the loft.
