Valuation enables owner to convert barns to luxury homes

Valuation enables owner to convert barns to luxury homes

One of our farming clients in Staffordshire was looking to convert his three redundant agricultural barns and paddock into several luxury residential properties with land attached. In order to gain planning permission for the conversion he needed a formal RICS Red Book valuation, an area in which we specialise, with Forge surveyor Tom Mason being an RICS Registered Valuer.

Due to the highly bespoke nature of the barns’ development, our report needed to include consideration of the final sale value and development costs, as well as comparable site sales. We also made recommendations as to changes that could be made to aspects of vehicle access, layout, design and style of the dwellings to improve their marketability and attract a premium value when it came to selling them. This meant that our final report not only met our client’s immediate needs but resulted in a document that will continue to be useful throughout the ongoing development process.

Our client was impressed with the depth and content of the valuation and has already said he will be using our services again.
