There’s no hiding from the fact that with time, your house will seem to become smaller and smaller. All that extra space you started out with will slowly disappear, and you’ll definitely want it back. It’s so easy to assume straight away that moving house is the only solution to getting more space, but that’s not the only way you can get a bigger house. Have you ever thought about having an extension?

Well, let us tell you how getting an extension could be a far better option than moving house.

It gets rid of the same problems, without creating new ones

Think about it, what’s the main reason for you wanting to move house? It’s to get more space, right? However, it’s important to consider all the extra problems that come with this, despite it solving your biggest one. For example, you have to find the right place, in the right location and for the right price, you have to sell the one you already live in, and it means getting a new mortgage and ultimately having to spend a lot more money. Choosing to have an extension instead however, still solves your biggest problem, and as opposed to presenting new ones, it actually provides you with a lot of benefits instead!

It’s far more cost effective

Continuing on from our previous point, having an extension provides lots of benefits and opportunities. The biggest one being that it can drastically increase the value of your home, and is a far more cheaper alternative to buying a new house all together. There’s no need to spend a fortune on a new home, when you could create the space in the one you already live in simply by getting an extension built into it.

Your extension is tailor-made to suit your home

Due to the freedom that comes with having an extension on your own house, you can pretty much have everything exactly how you want it. Where the extension is, how big it is, and even how it’s designed! Buying a new house doesn’t necessarily do this, as it’s often difficult to find something already ready-made that is exactly what you’re looking for. Furthermore, your extension could mean either extending an existing segment of your house, or building a completely brand new one, it all comes down to what you want.

It’s better in the long run

Although we’re encouraging you to choose an extension over moving house, it’s inevitable that at some point in your life, you probably will want to move house, and this could be for a number of reasons. So, if you’ve had a modern extension built into your home, the value of the property has increased, meaning that you will get a lot more money when it comes to selling it. So, as well as saving money and hassle now, in the long term, the choice to have an extension makes your property far more attractive to buyers, and the profit you make from it will allow you to continue investing in great things.
