We're not moving as often as we used to....

According to recent research, the average UK home owner is staying put for longer.

Ten years ago, the average time between house moves was 13.5 years but this has now increased to 18.7 years. Much of this can be attributed to the steady rise in house prices combined with the tightening up of lending criteria.

In turn, this has led to an increase in home extensions as in many cases it can be more cost effective to create extra room than to buy a larger house.

If you would like some advice on whether or not your extension will add value as well as space or if you would simply like to get an idea of the costs involved in moving, then please get in touch.
