If you are looking for another room or just more room, extending your current home may be a better option than going to the trouble of selling and buying. You may be after an extra bedroom, living area or bathroom to accommodate a growing family or aged parent. An extra room lets your kids have the freedom to invite friends over and enjoy gaming, movies and even do their homework without infringing on others. Alternatively you might be starting a home business that requires your own space – a home extension saves on rent and can be claimed for tax purposes.
There are unseen costs to selling and buying
Adding on a room to your existing home has many advantages over selling especially when you take into account the less obvious costs of selling and buying. These can be real estate agents fees, stamp duty, advertising, renovating to sell, removal costs, settlement fees, or pest and building inspections. There is also the inconvenience of taking time off work to attend inspections and holding your own home open days, keeping the house continually at presentation standard. Finding the new house you are after is also not guaranteed.
