Henley Homes Residential Property Sales in London

In 1903 John Gray invested $10,500 (approx. $264,000 in today’s money) into a small car company.

Fast forward 16 years and Gray’s family sold their share back to the Ford Motor Company for more than $26.25m (around $1.8 billion today).

The film star Ashton Kutcher invested a cool £364,000 in a start-up taxi service called Uber several years ago. You have probably heard of it. His stake is now worth more than ten million pounds.

But you do not have to be a canny entrepreneur or heart-throb film star to spend your dosh wisely.

Below are five ways homeowners and landlords can add value to their properties. *

  1. A new bathroom can add up to 3% to a home’s value.
  2. Converting a garage to a home office or extra room can potentially create a 10-12% uplift.
  3. A loft conversion can help your property’s price rise by around 10-15%.
  4. A new kitchen can add 5% to a property’s value.
  5. A side or rear extension will add more space, and that will create a higher value for your property, potentially up to 15% depending on the size and quality.

*These estimates come from a Zoopla report from 2018 but are still relevant today.
