How much does a loft conversion add to the value of a property in 2024?


According to research by Nationwide Building Society “Homeowners that add a loft conversion or extension, incorporating a large double bedroom and bathroom, can add as much as 25% to the value of a three-bedroom, one-bathroom house."

This has increased from 22% in their 2016 research feature. This is in line with trends that we have seen over the last few years clients have migrated from the historical trend of building loft conversions as a bedroom for a teenage child and are now more regularly choosing to convert their lofts as an adults bedroom suite where they are able to have their own generously sized bedroom, own bathroom and bespoke maximised built in storage solutions. For many homeowners the loft bedroom is in fact the largest bedroom in the house.


Robert Gardner, chief economist at Nationwide, said home buyers were prepared to pay more for extra usable space, as this was often associated with better quality accommodation.


This is excellent news for homeowners who are in need of extra space to accommodate a brand new Master Bedroom Suite complete with its own bathroom and plenty of storage as they are likely to be substantially increasing the overall value of their home whilst avoiding the cost and disruption of moving house and also being able to stay in the location they desire.
