Can a higher quality bathroom help new home sales?

With house prices rising at their slowest rate for more than six years in February 2019 across the UK and even falling by 3.8% over the year in London, sales of property is becoming more difficult.

Factors including uncertainty around the possibility of a no-deal Brexit encourages indecision for buyers and sellers. Mark Hayward, chief executive, NAEA Propertymark stated: “Brexit is undoubtedly causing uncertainty in the housing market, which in turn affects sentiment and decision-making.” 

So, if you are a regional developer or even renovating a property for the purpose of selling it, how can you differentiate your properties from others on the market making a more saleable house?

One way is by making sure that you fit a quality bathroom. Often quoted as being one of the two most important rooms in the house when it comes to house sales (the kitchen being the other) it is essential that your bathroom components and fittings communicate a feeling of quality to make your property more saleable.

How can this be achieved? Often developers fall into the temptation of fitting the cheapest bathrooms especially if in their early business years developed more modest home’s.

As a developer grows, often the size of home build grows as well, meaning a higher price value. This introduces the need to match market demands with client expectations. A more discerning buyer will be aware of market leading brands such as Laufen, Villeroy & Boch and similar – the cheapest option is no longer suitable.
