Should you move or should you extend?

Should you move or should you extend?

We’re brave enough to tell you the right decision for you, not for us.

Research shows that on average, British people move home around 8 times. If you ask most people, they’ll tell you that to get the best value with your property, you need to move regularly, finding a larger, new home to get the most bang for your buck. Estate agencies are usually the first people to encourage moving, persuading those who aren’t sure that it’ll be best for them in the long run in order to bring in that commission for themselves.

At Oakwood homes, we’re brave enough to tell you when it’s not the best decision to move. When customers come to us, we see them as real people, with real lives and real problems, rather than just a number to add to the profits tally. Our care for our customers means we will always sit with you, go through your specific property and help you decide the best recourse: leaving or extending.

For some, instead of selling the home you have, extending out the property to include more bedrooms with a loft conversion or adding on a sunroom could raise the worth of your properly and give you the space you need, and many find that using the money usually used in fees and the cost of the move means it could be worth your time to stay and extend instead.

By choosing to sell your home with us, you can be rest assured our experts will lead you to the best decision for you and if selling is the best way forward, we will apply the same care and concern to the process as we have to helping you make the initial decision.

If you’re not sure which direction to go in and are worried about being seen as a number rather than a real person, give us a call today or visit our website to find out more.
