Garden office could add £30k to your house's value

According to figures released collaboratively by property company David Wilson Homes estate agency, Curchods and garden studio supplier, WOHOBO, a garden office could add up to £30,000 to your home's value.

James Nash from WOHOBO said the company is continuing to see a surge in demand for garden studios following the covid pandemic. "Most of our customers have a desperate need to create extra space to enable them to work from home, whether that’s full-time or as part of a hybrid routine. A garden building creates a natural divide between family life and work. Even if it’s just a few steps along the garden path, being able to have a separate space for work can make a massive difference to your mindset.

Curchods managing partner, Grant Letts said that they've seen a steady increase in the number of properties featuring a garden building or garden room over the past few years, as well as growing buyer appeal. He offered an example of two virtually identical period houses they were showing on the same street, within 50 yards of each other, but one had a small garden studio. The house with the garden property sold for £30,000 more than the other home.

He added: “Similarly, a garden building may help your property sell faster. We recently marketed four comparative properties for sale and the only one featuring a garden room sold first.”
