28 Sep Should You Extend or Should You Move?
For many households, a time comes when the space they’re living in no longer meets their family’s needs. For some, the decision is easy— if you live in a unit or flat, it’s likely impossible to make any bigger. But if you live in a house, especially one that has reasonable outdoor space—home extensions become a genuine possibility.
Choosing to move or to extend depends on a number of elements. If you’re unsure of what might be the best solution for you, here are some questions to consider:
How emotionally invested are you in your home? Does the thought of letting go of it leave you feeling bereft or excited for new possibilities?
What are your future plans? Will the location and house continue to suit your needs?
What are the costs involved with both?
Are you happy with the neighbourhood you live in and the type of house you currently have?
Home Extensions in Australia
We’re lucky to live in a part of the world where home extensions are relatively easy. Our housing blocks are generally quite spacious and allow room for expansion without too much difficulty. Often, maximising the space we have is a wonderful option that allows us to continue living in a home we love that we’ve built many memories in.
When it comes to deciding which is the right decision for you and your family, it’s a decision best made together. After all, this is the space you’re going to be living in for the foreseeable future! You want to be happy in it.
