Increase The Value of Your Home with A Granny Annexe

Over the past ten years, granny annexes have become incredibly popular, with many families building them onto their property grounds to accommodate grown children or elderly relatives.

But just in general, too, granny annexes have gained popularity. As well as serving as a permanent residence for an in-need family member, these structures also work to give extra living space for the primary residence.

There might be some questions floating around that you want answers for. And the answers are: yes, a granny annexe is worth it; and yes, a granny annexe will increase the value of your home.

Let’s go through some of the factors that make annexes so popular in the UK and how they may improve people’s lives. Whether it is for senior care, promoting the independence of a younger family member, or for use as a home office or family film room.

Will A Granny Annexe Add Value To A Home?

Short answer, yes.

Granny annexes typically will increase the value of your home by quite a sizeable amount. They can generate revenue for a family, particularly in this day and age when vacation rentals are becoming ever popular.

But that isn’t the be all, end all. They will add value whether they are being used as extra living space or a vocational rental area. In fact, granny annexes offer multipurpose living spaces which can increase a property’s appeal to purchasers.

How Much Value Do Self-Contained Granny Annexes Add?

Checkatrade estimates that you can increase the value of your home by up to 20% or 30%. That would significantly increase the value of your property. Nevertheless, the precise value that a self-contained annexe offers to your home will differ, depending on certain circumstance:

  • Dimension and design of the annexe.
  • Physical current residence.
  • Calibre of the finish on the annexe.
  • Area of your current residence.

Precise numbers are usually argued because of all of these factors. Sometimes it really is dependent on the area you live in – newer or cleaner areas, for instance, will add more to the value – as well as the requirements you have for the annexe.

However, it’s likely that a granny annexe will increase the value of your home. Especially if you plan the whole process carefully – and who better to do that than professionals like Family Annexe?
