The Halifax have just released their June 2017 house price index and the results show house prices are falling slightly - but they are still higher than this time last year.
In a time of political uncertainty it certainly makes sense to make the most of the value and living experience of the home you are currently in rather than moving.
Moving house is an expensive business, especially in London and the home counties with huge stamp duty to pay as well as the associated fees.
There is still a housing shortage and also a glut of hopeful first time buyers currently living in rented accommodation and waiting for prices to 'correct' so it is extremely unlikely that house prices will fall, because as soon as there is any movement downwards there will be a surge of buyers pushing prices up again.
However whatever happens, it makes perfect sense to maximise the value of your own home.
At Thames Design & Build we can help you achieve your dream home without moving, as well as maximise the value and desirability of your home should you decide to move in future.
We can either work from your architect’s drawings or prepare drawings for you. Our combination of architectural and building expertise ensures a co-ordinated and practical approach to your design.
So if you are thinking of making the most of your home with a loft extension, side return extension, garage extension or any other type of extension or remodelling, please do get in touch and we will be delighted to come and see you for a free consultation.
