16 May House Extensions vs Moving to a Bigger Home
How We Can Help
Thinking about moving house but don’t want to leave the home you love? Then the answer is simple – extend instead! We are leading experts when it comes to Essex garage conversions and home extensions. Here’s why you should invest in your current home:
You won’t have to leave the area
Do you love the area that you live in? Is it close to where you work, or the school your children attend? Are you part of a great local community, and have neighbours you really get along with? Then why sacrifice that?! By choosing to extend your existing property rather than moving, you will get to stay in the area that you love, all while getting to enjoy a home that has all the space your household needs. It’s a win-win decision!
A home that’s perfect for you
Extending the property you live in will allow you to create a space that really works for you. It’s all too easy to think that a new home will give you that, but no home is going to be constructed with your exact needs in mind. Chances are, there are changes that you will end up making – so why not make those now, in the property you love? You will save on all the paperwork and stress associated with moving home too, which is always a bonus!
Increase the value of your home
Although you may not be planning to move house right now if you decide to extend, there’s no telling what the future holds. If you were to sell up further down the line – perhaps if your children left home and you were looking to downsize – an extension is going to add plenty of value to your property. So, even if you are choosing to extend rather than move house, it’s an investment that can really pay off in years to come. After all, you never know what the future holds!
Where to extend?
Many property owners know that they want to extend, but aren’t sure which part of their home to go for. Some people opt for a rear extension that spans both levels of the property, and some choose to convert their garage and make the most of the space that is already there. What decision you make will of course be influenced by the size of your budget, but also how much building work you are willing to tolerate. We’re here to talk you through every option.
We are one of the leading specialists in Essex garage conversions and home extensions, and we have worked on a wide range of projects. No matter the age or style of your property, we will work with you to draw up plans for an extension that not only gives you the extra space that you need, but perfectly complements the rest of your home.
