Considering a Home Extension? Read this First!

Sep 30, 2014

If you are considering a home extension for your Perth area home, you may want to consider a few things first. It is important that your home extension is economically, aesthetically and functionally feasible. Here are some important considerations on the way to home renovation or extension.

Considerations of Home Extensions

Capital Growth vs Expense

We always encourage our potential customers to compare the cost of a home renovation against the capital gain they will enjoy when it is time to sell the home. If you break even or better, it’s great. If you “lose” a little bit of money but get to live in a bigger home, then you may want to compare the cost of the home extension to the cost and the hassle of moving to a larger home.

If you plan to stay in your home at least ten more years, you will almost always make money by building a home extension. Some people choose to renovate or add to their home just before selling it because they know they can make an immediate profit. Either way, it pays to know the full financial implications of your decision whether or not to build a home extension.

What Do You Want to Achieve?

Do you want your home to have more space? Do you want to modernise it? Do you want to turn your current home into your dream home? These are all important questions.

Out or Up?

If you build upward, it costs more per square metre. But if you don’t have space to build out, building up may be your only option.

Do I Have the Right Builder?

Make sure you hire the right builder for the job. You want one with experience, a great track record and a great reputation for quality work and timely completion. The wrong builder can cost you a fortune and ruin your home.
