In September 2017, a midlands estate agent added £20,000 to the asking price of a home, all because it had a conservatory with a Solid Roof fitted.
This is what he said:
“As a rule, a typical glass roof conservatory wouldn’t usually have any effect on the value of a house, unless it is very large or particularly special conservatory, and to be honest at first glance I thought this property featured a single storey extension, it certainly looked like one. While I was there I remembered that I’d just valued a different house in the same road at £275,000, but when I saw this home with its additional room and how it added extra ground floor living space, I suggested we put the house on the market at £295,000. It was clearly the right decision as we received an offer within the month and sold it in double quick time. Interestingly the new owners only lived two streets away in a very similar house, but they said that they loved the way the kitchen was integrated with the garden room, and that they had fallen in love with the home there and then”
