Whether big or small, there’s always a part of your home with room for improvement. So, what’s holding you back? If it’s financial reasons, then we have a guide that can help you estimate the potential costs and profits of renovating your home. However, before enthusiasm gets the better of you, let’s make some measured calculations prior to the renovation project.
To make the renovation process run more smoothly and help you budget for the cost of your project, check out this useful calculator from Sainsbury’s Bank.
The guide estimates the cost of renovation work, as well as the potential profit. There’s also a quick glance feature which shows the best return on investment based on your budget. For example, adding a garage conversion to your home costing around £5000 has the potential to increase your overall property value by £20,000.
To aim for the best return on your home investments take a look at the visual below which outlines the top 5 home renovations for making a profit.
