Moving House v House Extension
There are lots of reasons why you need more space in your home – a new family member, the need for a home office, a family member moving back in or simply just to have some more room. There are two main ways to gain space – moving house v house extension.
Moving house can definitely gain you the space you need if you can afford to buy a bigger house but there are a lot of other considerations. For starters, you need to sell your home and move everything to the new property. That means estate agent fees, solicitors fees, removal costs and more.
With an extension, you can add to the space of your home without moving anywhere. Most properties will be able to have some kind of extension added without the need for planning permission under Permitted Development rights. This includes adding conservatories, single storey extensions and converting garages.
Not only do you avoid all the costs associated with moving, but you could also actually increase the value of your home. Adding an extension makes the house more valuable because it is bigger and if you do decide to sell at a later date, the value will increase due to the extension. Your home will also stand out from neighbours due to the extra space you have.
