Quoting Louise Ridings, Bill Spreckley of Stacks Property Finders
A good lateral extension and improvement project is likely to show a good return on investment,” says the company’s Louise Ridings.
“Bungalows suit contemporary design trends for open-plan, lateral space with plenty of opportunity to create access to outside living areas.”
Her other advice for bungalow owners is: “Invest in energy efficiency – plenty of roof space is great for solar panels – and landscaping.
“Look at ways of creating interesting and useable indoor/outdoor ergonomics, hiding car parking, and adding character to what is often a large but rather bland plot.
“As our population ages, high-end bungalows are the asset class of the future, so you must expect to pay now.
“The days of getting a cheap bungalow because it isn’t a great beauty are sadly long gone.”
Colleague Bill Spreckley adds: “The price of the humble bungalow will continue its march upwards as it achieves rarity value.”
