When you found a house in the perfect community in which to raise your family, you probably did not give much thought to what space you will need 5 to 10 years down the road. Kids grow up fast. Before you know it, they have outgrown the small bedroom that they used to share and are fighting over who gets to use the bathroom first in the morning. The modest one-storey house that you purchased suddenly seems too small for your growing family. However, you love the neighbourhood and do not wish to move. There is a perfect solution to your dilemma. Why not add extensions to your house so there will be ample space for everyone?
Why Renovating Your Home is Preferable to Moving
More and more people are choosing to renovate their existing homes instead of moving.
If you have established roots in your community, it is difficult to leave all of that and start afresh just because your family needs more space. Your children will have to leave their school friends and attend a new school. You will have a new commute route to your place of employment. You take a chance in joining a new community and hope that you fit in.
A home in a desirable community is hard to come by because the location is everything. Features of a house can be changed, but the location cannot. If you already live in a community that you love, it makes more sense to change the house instead of moving out of the community.
The cost of renovation is not that much more than the cost of moving. When you factor in the commission that you must pay a real estate agent for selling your house, the financial costs of taking out a new loan for the new house, the cost of hiring a moving company for your move, and the intangible cost of giving up the roots that you have established, moving just to have a bigger house suddenly does not seem like a good reason.
Renovate to Get Exactly What You Want
When you work with a home renovation expert, you can get the exact changes that you want. You can expand your kitchen for more space, add extra bedrooms and bathrooms, and even have an entire second level built. When the renovations and extensions are complete, it is like moving into a new house, only you actually didn’t have to move.
When you renovate instead of move, you get the best of both worlds. You get to remain in the community that you love, and you will get the house of your dreams.
