Extend or Move?

Often people consider moving house without the though of looking to extend or vice versa. If you like the area that you live in but you simply don't have enough room for a growing family or you decide you need more space then extending may be the best and most cost effective solution. If you extend your house you avoid the costs of selling a house which include solicitors fees, estate agent fees and then there is stamp duty when you buy your new house. The downsides to having an extension is the potential inconvenience of having the work done and you obviously don't get to move area which may be important to your personal circumstance. There are many advantages to having an extension put on your home, not just fees but also you can design the space to fit your needs and alter existing spaces to work around your life.
