1. Demand for office space
Having a dedicated office space is fast becoming an essential feature for prospective buyers, reflecting the rise in hybrid working across many industries in the UK.
Luke Jackson from Michael Graham reports: “Home offices are mentioned in the majority of our conversations with prospective buyers. Having a home office in the garden away from the house can now make or break a property deal.”
2. Increased floor space
Traditional ways to add extra space at home, such as extensions and loft conversions, are massive projects that can be overwhelming and pricey.
A garden room allows you to add extra space at home easily and cost-effectively, without taking up valuable square footage inside the house. Removing a bedroom at home to create your office, gym, or hobby room is not the most appealing way to make space for potential buyers.
3. Wow factor
Modern garden room buildings are a unique and stylish addition to your home, making them an attractive feature to potential buyers. By catching attention with a contemporary outdoor living space, you are likely to gather a higher volume of viewings, leading to a quicker sale. When viewing numbers are high, the asking price is normally met, as potential buyers won’t want to miss out.
Garden games rooms and garden bars have been really popular recently, and it makes sense why when you see these unique spaces!
4. Attract the health conscious
Having space at home for a gym is an excellent investment in your health and well-being. But you might not realise that having this space at home will help attract a vast market of fitness-conscious buyers. A separate area away from the main house to use as a garden gym is ideal for total privacy to meet your fitness goals. No mess, no noise, no interruptions.
