A dilemma for many families these days is, do they move to a bigger property or extend the home they already live in and love? The neighbours are friendly, the local schools highly rated, the shops are close by and offer a great variety of retail options. The home you purchased as a way of getting a foot on to the property ladder is now creaking at the seams as your family continues to grow. If you are living in the West Midlands you could easily contact several House Extensions Solihul companies to compare prices and give yourselves a better understanding of your extend or move options.
If you do decide to move home then consider all the expenses you will have to outlay to complete the house exchange and move. An Estate Agent, a Solicitor, a removals company and obviously a large deposit and mortgage offer on the table are all expenses you need to consider. Also, when you move you will have new neighbours to live next to, have to look for a new School/College for yourself or your children and find a new quick and easy route to work.
The more reasonable, easier option is to stay in the home you’ve known and loved for years and extend into available space. That way your family can continue to attend their local schools, your route to work is well known and your neighbours are your good friends.
