“It is a relatively minor expense and can add a minimum $100,000 back in value,” Ms Barber said.

Attic & Roof Conversions owner Patrick Houston undertook a high-end renovation project for a client that unveiled value-adding water views.

“We build on top floor units where possible as there are some magnificent views and the attic can add hundreds of thousands of dollars onto the real estate because of those views,” Mr Houston said.

This came to over $400,000 in added value on the unit.
