If you need more space but don’t want to move or climb up stairs, a home extension might be the perfect solution. Numerous Perth homeowners have decided to build out and create all of the space they need without the hassle of buying, selling and moving. So, why are home extensions so popular in Perth?
More Living Space
When you don’t have children, a small home can be a great “starter home.” It can be the easiest way to gain entry into the market. But eventually, life happens and families grow. Eventually, you begin to outgrow your modest house. This leaves you with a dilemma. Do you “trade up” into another home or do you expand your current home?
There is no way to sugar-coat this; it can be a monumental waste of time, money and effort to sell your old home, buy a new home and move. It costs a lot of money to buy, sell and move. You pay realtor commissions, movers and maybe even storage and a temporary living space if you can’t close on your old home and new home at roughly the same time.
Then there is the hassle of changing over accounts such as gas, electricity and cable. Your children have to change schools and move away from their friends. If you live in a close-knit neighbourhood, leaving it can be difficult even for adults.
Home Extension or Second Storey Addition?
Luckily, there is an answer: expand your current home with a home extension or a second storey addition. But when is a home extension appropriate? For a home extension to be the right choice, you need enough space to build out without eliminating your backyard. If your property is large enough, a home extension is a great way to expand your home.
In Perth, land is becoming more expensive and blocks are becoming smaller. Consequently, your property may be too small for a home extension. If your council and neighbourhood regulations allow, a second storey addition may be the perfect solution for you.
