If you are trying to decide whether to move or to build a home extension for your Perth area home, you are probably weighing the pros and cons of extending or moving. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of home extensions.
Disadvantages of Home Extensions
There aren’t really a lot of disadvantages, but there are a few that can make or break a home extension. You may live in an area that restricts your ability to build a home extension or won’t let you extend. Home extensions can be costly if your land is on a huge slope. In addition, if your home isn’t on a large enough block of land, a home extension can make your backyard almost non-existent.
If any of these are the case, you would want to consider a second storey addition or moving to another home.
Advantages of Home Extensions
The biggest advantage to a home extension is that you don’t have to go through the hassle or expense of selling your old home and buying a new home. You have to pay commission to a real estate broker, pay off one loan, find another loan and pay stamp duty. These all cost money. In addition, it takes a lot of time and effort to look for a home, sell yours, pack up all of your belongings and have strangers tromping through your home when you are trying to sell.
Another great advantage of getting a home extension: it nearly always makes you money. Most home extensions increase the sale value of the home by more money than they cost. Also, home extensions are customised to your specifications. Instead of looking for your dream home, you can turn your current home into your dream home. Also, there is almost no intrusion into your lifestyle when professionals build your home extension.
