As groundworks contractors, we’re based in Petworth but work throughout Sussex, Surrey and sometimes further afield. Over the past twelve months, our little piece of West Sussex paradise has become much sought after. You only need to read this article in a recent issue of the Financial Times to understand that the property market is booming! While it’s a hot property market, every vendor wants to maximise their sale price, and we can help. Several of the services we offer will help increase your property’s kerb appeal and desirability. Read on for all the details.
Groundworks Contractors – 3 ways we help add value to your home:
A great first impression:
Most prospective purchasers will do a drive-by before they even think about booking a viewing. As groundworks contractors, we’ve been helping homeowners make a great first impression for many years. We can help with instant kerb appeal by updating your driveway. Find out more about the driveway services we offer HERE.
An extra room:
Walking to the end of the garden is the new commute! With the rise in working from home, more and more city dwellers have decided they can step away from the station and move to the West Sussex countryside. But they do need a home office. If you want your home to appeal to these purchasers, you may need to consider an extra room. One of the easiest ways to gain this added space is to invest in a pre-built studio or cabin. While you should always check with your local planning authority, these types of outbuildings are sometimes classified as permitted developments. But remember, any building that you decide upon will certainly require a concrete pad, and that’s where we come in. Your prospective purchaser will also see added value if your garden studio has everything in place to connect services. We can make sure this is all in hand.
Optimising outside spaces:
One of the reasons people are leaving London and the suburbs is because lockdown has shown them the value of easily accessible outside spaces. Over the last twelve months, we’ve helped many of our Petworth based clients make major improvements to their garden living areas. We’ve created pergolas, decks, paved pool surrounds and more. We’ve even completed our own outside entertaining area.
Optimising your outside space can offer huge appeal to your prospective buyers, helping you achieve maximum sales price, often with a comparably small investment.
