When it comes to a garage conversion, it’s a bit tricky. You can significantly add value to your home as easily as you can decrease it, there is no middle ground. If you live in a neighbourhood where parking is a big issue, then we advise not to convert the garage into a living space since it will decrease the value of your home. 

Alternatively if there is no problem with parking in your neighbourhood, converting the garage into a living space will add value to your home if it’s done well. More than any other extension to your home – a badly converted garage has the potential to decrease the value of your property. Always consult the professionals about your garage conversion to avoid that risk. Most garage conversions fall within permitted development.
