Does Storage Add Value To Your Property?

Larissa | 06/28/21

A storage shed, garage, or carport might be just what you need to add value to your property. 

With the New Zealand property market as it is, people tend to be choosing to make renovations to their property as opposed to buying new ones. If you are planning on selling, it may seem counterintuitive to spend money on making improvements. However, it can increase the value for an older place when it comes to putting it on the market. After all, the better your house looks, the easier it will be to sell. 

With the increased popularity of storage spaces, hobby sheds, and backyard workshops, a shed is an excellent investment for adding value to your property. A KiwiSpan shed will not only benefit during the period you live at your property but also in the future if you do decide to sell. 

However, as a word to wise for those looking to make improvements to their home in order to sell, you first need to take into consideration what buyers are looking for and then make the decision of what would be appropriate changes for your home. If you give the market what it wants, selling will be easier. 

There are different ways to go about improving your property such as replacing flooring, a new kitchen, or a fresh coat of paint. But one thing that is often overlooked, but is at the top of buyer’s wish lists, is storage. 

Storage is one of the simplest yet often missed areas for renovation plans. 

Real estate agents tend to agree that adding the right storage can absolutely increase your property’s value. Properties that have the cherry on top of a garage, workshop, or shed definitely have the upper hand over properties without these elements, and this allows for a greater sale or rental price.

Even if you aren’t planning on selling your home anytime soon, a KiwiSpan shed is still a valuable investment. A new garage, shed, or workshop can bring many benefits to your family including: 

  • Additional storage space: sheds and garages can be an ideal solution if you don’t have a lot of space for storage. Even a small shed can give you the extra space you need for items that take up space in your home, while still being accessible when needed. 
  • Security: a garage provides you with the peace of mind knowing that your vehicles are safe. 
  • Extended living areas: sheds can serve a multitude of purposes and be a solution to a variety of space concerns. A shed makes a great sleepout, game room, or man cave. 
  • Protection from the elements: KiwiSpan sheds and garages provide weather protection and can protect your cars, boats, and other valuables from the elements.
