Want more space without the hassle of building work? Sell your property for it’s maximum value by adding planning permission on the perfect extension and then move! Buyers often want to add their own stamp on a property, and equally decide to rip everything out of a newly renovated property to suit their own style. Take the risk out of your potential sale and design a large extension with planning permission. The buyer will be able to see the potential, avoid the risk of not achieving planning permission as well as the expense of applying for it! Your top sale price will be achieved and you never have to deal with the dust. Top Tip: plan the largest extension possible under planning guidelines. The new owners are not required to build it all at once. If they start work within 3 years, the planning permission lasts indefinitely, so the renovation can be broken up into manageable projects…or not completed at all (e.g the size of the basement can be reduced and added on later, the loft can be done at a later date, etc). EV Architects designed a fantastic extension in East London. The owners inherited the house from their parents and wanted to sell at the maximum value, splitting the profit between siblings. The planning permission on the extension added 72 square metres (775 square feet) to the value to the sale. The 3D visuals of the extension were displayed at the ‘open house’ which helped the buyers see the value. The pictures show the existing house and the visual design of the approved extension and the property was quickly snapped up.
