With the cost and hassle of moving house many owners are now looking to extend their homes instead. Extensions can vary in size and grandeur but done well will add significant value to your home. More importantly it can give you the extra space you require, which reduces the need for you to move home. Read on to see how you can add value to you home with an extension.
The Benefits of Extending Your Home
Can save you money! Sounds crazy but having an extension can often save you money. Usually to get the space you need requires moving up the property ladder which in itself can be a huge jump in price. For example, to go from a three bedroom property to a four bedroom property there is a big price increase. You also have to consider the cost of moving – you have to pay solicitor fees, survey fees, mortgage fees, estate agent fees etc.
Gives you more control – you don’t have to get caught up in the property buying and selling chain, risking losing out on your sale or purchase at the last minute. You can design how you want your house to be rather than looking for something that may or may not fit your requirements.
Utilises your home – there are many ways to extend your home. From moving walls, adding a single story to increase space or give an extra room. You can also have double story extensions to give you extra living space and a new bedroom or bigger bathroom. Extending up in to the loft to create an extra bedroom is also a great option if you have the space to do so.
Add value to your home – this can be monetary of course but it also increases saleability and adds value to your own lifestyle. Many homeowners report how much happier they are once they have the space and function required for their lifestyle.
