Everybody has a vision of their dream home. However, not everyone has the means to purchase it. With prices of real estate in Melbourne spiralling out of control, buying a home that’s well within your preferences can be quite a tough task.
The best alternative is to either extend or renovate your home and have it updated to accommodate your growing family and today’s building standards. It is a more cost-effective means to get the home of your dreams without spending a fortune or uprooting your family to a different place. Here are some of the things you need to know about home renovation and extensions.
Renovating or extending your home instead of moving house
Moving into a new house is not your only option if you are looking for an upgrade. With the price of properties all over Melbourne rising, there is no guarantee that the home that you want will be available in your price range, even after you sell your old property.
Many people now find that upgrading their existing home can be a solution that is just as good (and sometimes even better) than buying a new house. Custom home builders that specialise in home additions can help you get your dream home through upgrades.
Benefits of renovating your home
The benefits of going for a home renovation are numerous. First is you can design all the rooms of the house according to your personal preference. Do you want your kitchen, bathroom, or living room designed in a specific way? You’ve got it! Do you want a particular number of bedrooms for your family? We can get it done.
Depending on the amount of space you have and your budget, your options are unlimited when it comes to home renovations. It can be a lot like buying a new property, at a much lower cost and you even get to stay in the area of Melbourne that you and your family already love.
Benefits of extending your home
When planned and executed correctly, house extensions can add a lot to a pre-existing house. In fact, the effect can be just as good as having your house completely rebuilt. The great thing about a home extension in a lot of cases, is your house will stay functional during the build, so you don’t have to move out. In some cases, it can be less expensive than a full house renovation. If done correctly, an extension can fit seamlessly with your existing home, where most people won’t even realise the new part of your Melbourne home was even an extension. You can add form and function to any Melbourne home with a house extension.
