Do I stay or do I go?

It’s no secret that local property isn’t a seller’s market at the moment, but this doesn’t mean you need to stop adding value to your home.

If you need to stay put to protect what you have already invested in your property, why not continue to improve and add value whilst the market picks up?

Experts suggest that the local market is slowly recovering, however it may take two or maybe three years to improve, which could be the perfect amount of time to make some adjustments to your home. There are many finance products available that would allow improvements to be completed and paid for in time for your next move. So smart planning now can maximise your selling potential when the time comes.

With our free initial on site consultation, it doesn’t cost you a penny to get some ideas. Advice on Environment and Building Control applications could give you further options dependent on your wishes and scope of your property.

Instead of moving could you improve your home to suit the current time of your life? There are many people in need of that extra bedroom or wishing to increase their living space. During 2015 we have produced some exciting and innovative projects to significantly improve the living arrangements of our clients.  Conversions of out-buildings and garages to create a craft or hobby room, a studio/gym and even cinema rooms are becoming more and more popular.

For a more financially rewarding solution, sub-dividing could be an option for producing two dwellings – one to live in and one to rent. With rental prices continuing to rise in town, renters are looking to the outer parishes which can provide a financially lucrative arrangement. With many young professionals not able to make it onto the property ladder just yet, there are lots of ideal candidates to rent part of your property.

Whatever 2016 has in store for you, we can help with your potential project.

JG Architecture can produce a sensible and clear approach for your Environment application, detailed plans for Building Control as well as recommending a cost-effective service from the building trade. Further guidance by administering your project throughout the construction phase can make sure every detail is managed to give you peace of mind.
