There are many reasons why you might be currently weighing up the pros and cons of renovating your current home or moving out. If you’ve lived in your home for a while and grown attached to many aspects of it, you may be caught between your head and your heart when it comes to making the right decision. Our latest blog post aims to help you decipher whether moving home or renovating your current property is the best decision.
Before you become firm with one decision, put everything else aside and really consider the initial reason(s) that led you to think that something needed to change with regard to your living situation.
For many people, the size of their home becomes an issue. If your home is too big, there is very little you can do that will solve this problem long term and selling up is likely to be your best option.
However, if your home is too small, ask yourself what spaces are causing you difficulty. Is it just the size of your kitchen or bathroom or is it the entire space? If the answer here is that one or two rooms are the issue, this could be easily solved by a one or two story extension.
If the option of an extension doesn’t thrill you either, now is the time to consider all the other pros and cons to living where you do. For example, do you have good local relationships? Are your favourite shops close by? If important to you, do you currently live in a good catchment area? All of these reasons can be viable reasons to want to stay and renovate your current home.
Of course, there may be issues you have with your current home that can’t be easily solved by an extension or renovation project. Perhaps you’re not fond of the area or don’t get on well with your neighbours. Whatever the reasons, moving home doesn’t have to be an uphill battle.
It is best to have an offer n your current home before you place an offer on another property. Just like you, other sellers want someone that is serious about moving and are more likely to consider you if you are already in the process of selling.
