All these factors make moving home a very big step for the majority of people. Especially if the only reason you are considering moving is simply due to there not being quite enough space in your current property. So, enter the next option, extending.Over the last 10 years, 30% of UK citizens have gone ahead with an extension instead of moving house, whilst 51% have moved house instead of getting an extension for the added space.
Quite often, extending your home is a very cost-effective way of adding to the size of your house. It means that you are starting with a house that you are currently happy with. You don’t need to make the home “your own” as you do if you move house. Presumably all the rest of the decor and furniture is to your taste. You are simply adding more space to your existing living space.
Extending is a LOT cheaper than moving in most circumstances and it also recoups some of the cost by adding value to your home. There is obviously some stress and hassle involved in extending but nowhere near as much as moving entirely. You are still keeping the same neighbours, you are still situated conveniently for work and friends, your children don’t have any upheaval and life continues as normal – only in a bigger home.
