    Why Is a Garden Pod a Great Investment?

    The greatest thing about garden pods is that they provide additional space to a property and who doesn’t want more space? In the current socio-economic climate, more and more people need modern solutions to their everyday problems. For instance, some people might need a home office, while others might prefer to choose a property that can be used to gain some additional income by renting it partially. Families with many children will also appreciate the extra space because they will surely need an extra bedroom once the kids grow up. Young couples can use the garden pod to create a cool space in their garden where they can entertain their guests. Garden pods can enhance all your experiences, from hosting a BBQ to building a tennis court in your backyard – it all depends on your resources.

    Another reason why people are so attracted to properties that have additional spaces such as garden pods is the fact that extending a property is a lot of work. In addition to that, only a few properties that are available on the market will have a real potential of being extended by adding an extra room, by converting an attic or a basement, etc.

    And last but not least – versatility. As we’ve mentioned before, garden pods are versatile. You might use your garden pod as a home office at the moment, but your potential buyers might dream of having a home gym or a home cinema. They will have to make a few changes, but as long as the garden pod is properly insulated and can be used year-round, they will consider having extra space a great plus without a doubt.

    How Much Value Will a Garden Pod Add to Your Property?

    It is very difficult to offer an exact answer to this question because it all depends on the quality and size of the garden pod and the current state of your property and its initial value. However, experts suggest that a garden pod might boost the value of your property by as much as 15%. So, if your property is worth £100,000, and you add a really nice garden pod, you might sell your property for up to £115,000. So, it’s safe to say that you’re not losing any money by getting a garden pod because, if and when you decide to sell your property, you’ll be reimbursed.

    But money isn’t the only advantage here. You will also sell much faster because your property will also be more attractive. A lot of homeowners complain that it takes a very long time to find the right buyer for their properties, but that isn’t the case for attractive properties that have additional space. Think of the following situation – you are trying to sell a two-bedroom house and a family with one small child comes to the open house. The first thing that they are going to check is whether the house will be a good choice in the long run. They will love the fact that they are going to have a home office that they can, later on, transform into an extra bedroom for when their child grows up.
