One thing we always want more of in our home, is space. The longer you have lived somewhere, the more you think it’s time for a change and the less space you seem to have. Usually the first thing people turn to as the solution for this, is moving house. However, that’s not the only option, and it’s not necessarily the best, either. More often than not, getting an extension is a far better way of creating some more space and a bit of change, and actually offers far more benefits than moving house, with half the amount of hassle and a lot less of a cost!
There’s no need to move house and buy somewhere new for more space, when you can simply expand the home you already live in. If the reason you’re thinking of moving is down to the fact you want a bit more space, you should definitely consider the option of having an extension. Put into simple terms, an extension literally means making your house bigger, therefore giving you some extra space.
Not only does it cost a lot less to get an extension than it would to buy a new house and have a new mortgage, but it will make your home worth more money, too. Extensions increase the value of your home by quite a lot so that when you do eventually go on to sell your house in the future, you will receive a higher sum for it and it will probably appeal to a lot more people. This will allow you more money to look for somewhere better and it will be easier to sell your house, therefore making it a great investment!
Ultimately, having an extension solves the exact same problems as moving into somewhere bigger, but requires nowhere near as much trouble. It solves the problems you have without creating any new ones along the way, and in fact, provides you with some great benefits instead, such as the value, the personalisation, and the transformation of your home.
Relocating means having to find a house that matches all of your requirements. This can be a pretty long and difficult process, which is why we recommend looking at getting an extension as a better alternative. Opting for an extension means you can stay in the house you’re happy with and still get the extra space you need. When looking for somewhere new to live, there will always be certain things that aren’t quite right and not suited to your preferences, so why not stay where you’re happy and get an extension? A new house would have to suit a lot of your needs and preferences, such as a good location, affordable price, and being designed how you like it, whereas your house already has all of this but could simply do with being a little bigger.
Extensions allow you a lot of freedom and personalisation to make your home exactly what you want it to be and give you all the space you need. When looking for a new house, there are a lot of things to consider, whereas the home you already live in ticks most of these boxes and has been made to be exactly how you want it.
