With an uncertain housing market, it makes most sense to stay put and make the most of your existing home. The average first home buyer will now have to wait until they are over 42 before they can afford to buy their next house. Even retired couples are realising that downsizing to a smaller property is not always simple, stress-free and financially beneficial – and there`s also the emotional pain of scaling back and moving away from familiar amenities and good friends. Renovate or relocate?

Four of the main reasons people give for moving home are to enjoy more space, upgrade their surroundings, change their lifestyle or give themselves a property renovation project. Yet many are realising that these goals can be attained by upgrading and upsizing their current property, through selective home improvements and building extensions.

You may be surprised how easily your house can be transformed to accommodate a growing family, or expanded to give you the open plan kitchen and dining room you have always dreamed of.

We can help you visualise the potential in a property: potential to expand, to open up rooms, connect to the garden, or add another bedroom.
