    Why should you consider a house extension? Would it be easier to sell your current home and move into a larger one? We’re going to give you a brief insight into why a house extension might be the right choice for you.

    So why should you think about building a home extension instead of moving?

    • If you’re happy and settled in your local area, you don’t have to relocate

    • You can make the changes you want and not settle for something that’s just “ok”

    • You may be surprised in finding that an extension to your current dwelling may be more affordable than selling and buying something bigger.

    • Lastly, we often hear that people have become attached to their current residence and don’t want to leave. They just need to make some additions so that their family has room to grow and thrive.

    How much extra value can a house extension add to a property?

    It can be difficult to put a dollar figure for how much extra value your extension could add to the value of your property. If you are adding a feature that buyers appreciate, such as a new kitchen or extension to your home, you are likely to realise a significant return on your investment – in some cases as much as $150,000 or more!

    How to save on house extension costs

    Keep in mind that a house extension costs more than just the cost of building. If you want to avoid going over-budget, you need to consider all of the costs before you commit to an extension. Do all your costings first and don’t leave anything out, remembering to account for things like:

    • Heating and air conditioning
    • Flooring
    • Painting
    • Furnishings
    • Lighting
    • Curtains or blinds
    • Exterior painting if needed
    • Excavation work
    • Electrical wiring
    • Plumbing

    If you are extending your home purely to add value when you sell it, you should consider whether the proposed additions enhance the style and integrity of the home. You should also understand the value of homes that are selling in your area, what buyers are looking for, what you’re going to spend, and an estimate of the value that you can create. Doing some good market research upfront will definitely pay off in the long term.
