Home additions are becoming an increasingly popular option for Perth area residents who want to move into a larger house but don’t have the money to buy the kind of home they want.
The benefits of home additions are well-documented. You don’t have to go through selling your old home or buying a new one. You don’t have to change over your gas, electricity, cable, landline and other recurring accounts tied to your current address. You don’t have to pack up all your belongings and unpack them in another place.
With a home addition, all you really have to do is wait for it to be built with almost no intrusion into your current life. Then, you move into the “new” half of your home. That’s it. No hassle.
Lately, though, a new benefit has come into play: property in the capital cities just costs too much money. A recent article in Perth Now was entitled, “Just how much home can you realistically buy for less than $400,000?” In the Perth suburb of Bellevue, 17 km from the CBD, they found a two-bedroom cottage on 810 sqm of land for $369,000. The home didn’t look like much of a “bargain,” either.
Home prices were “flat” last year, but most indicators point towards prices rising by the end of the year. In other words, it isn’t getting any easier or cheaper to buy a new home. That is why home additions are such a bargain, especially in the Perth area.
Why Home Additions Make Sense in Perth
A home addition can help you build “out” or “up,” depending upon your property and the structure of your house. There is almost no disruption to your daily routine, as the building site is sealed off from the rest of your home until completed. For second storey additions, of course, we will need to build a stairway, but that can also be done in a non-obtrusive manner.
You don’t have to move. You don’t have to sell your own house. Most of all, we can build according to your design ideas.
