How much could your garden be worth?

Posted 14/09/2016 by: Reeds Rains

Could you profit from your plot? That's the question many homeowners are asking themselves. Homeowners are constantly being reminded of the shortage of housing within the UK, mainly due to dormant incomes and the rising cost of homes. In fact, according to the Government, estimates put the need for additional housing in England at between 232,000 to 300,000 new units a year. To put that in to perspective, these are levels that have not been reached since the late 1970's and two to three times the current supply.

So, with demand for new homes at an all time high, more and more homeowners are viewing their gardens as a potential pot of gold with some even teaming up with their neighbours to sell larger plots. Selling part, or all, of you garden or small plot to a property developer is a growing trend. There's many reasons why homeowners consider selling part of their gardens; maybe the garden is now to difficult to maintain or maybe it's just to free up some cash.

The overriding concern with most homeowners is planning. Planning is very subjective, and even if your garden is in the middle of a row of gardens, or locked behind other properties, there many be a solution.
