Why You Should Renovate Rather Than Move House


You love the place you live. Having great neighbours and a great community friendly atmosphere makes your area the perfect place to live but sometimes your house may not be right anymore. Reasons might be numerous like your family demanding more privacy and space, maybe you have more kids to come or you simply want more space to relax and entertain.

Whatever the reasons might be, you don’t have to move your house and relocate somewhere else. When carried out properly, a renovation can deliver the lifestyle and space you are after at a fraction of the cost and without having to leave the area you love and are settled in.

Reasons to prefer renovation over relocation

* It is cheaper, as you can save on moving costs, stamp duty, agent fees and other expenses.
* You keep the comfort and familiarity that arise from living in a home for a long period. So, you do not have to uproot yourselves and your family from a place you are familiar with.
* By choosing to renovate, you can avoid the worry and stress that comes with moving.
* An added benefit of remodeling your home is the increase in the overall value of your home. This is a good investment in case you want to sell the place at a later date.
