Why Extend Your Home?By On December 16, 2015 Under Extensions
There are many factors that need to be taken into account when considering whether to move or extend your current home. Such factors as location, convenience and familiarity may well keep you where you are but your family’s changing needs may dictate whether this is possible or not.
- Fees to the estate agent
- Fees to the solicitors
- Fees to complete surveys
- Stamp duty payments
- Improvement costs or essential repairs
Other than improvement costs to your new home; the fees are funds that are lost in the process of moving home.
When considering an extension, here are some other elements that should be thought about:
- Take into consideration the relative property values in the housing around you
- Consider any lacking essential facilities within your home; i.e. bathroom and kitchen
- Ensure there is as little as possible imbalance in the accommodation such as bedrooms and living space
Time invested in looking into the above factors will inevitably leave you to get the most from your building project. Extending your home does require a range of considerations but it is likely one of the most exciting times.
Extending your home provides you with the opportunity to offer your family adequate living space and can mean that family members have individual spaces for their differing needs.
More usable space will allow your family a better quality of living and will in turn offer an asset that you can benefit from when selling on your property.
