The housing market can be difficult to navigate at times. You may find a new home that perfectly suits your needs, but is out of your price range. Or, you may find a house within your budget that is not what you had imagined or desired from a new home. It’s in situations such as these when the prospect of “buying to renovate” becomes appealing, as it allows you more freedom to adapt a property to suit your needs and become your ideal home.
Here is why buy-to-renovate is becoming a better option in the current housing market, as well as how Copperwood Construction can help in this process:
Find a Home with Potential
The process of buy-to-renovate is simple; buy a new home that meets some or most of your needs, within your budget, then renovate or extend the property straight away, before you move in.
The cost of a renovation, conversion or extension is far cheaper than buying a new property, which is why many people choose them over moving house. However, even adapting your current home can have its drawbacks, as you may not be able to add an extension, or the rest of the house is no longer fit for purpose as your family/living circumstances change. By buying a new property with the intent to renovate or extend it straight after purchase, you could buy a relatively cheaper house and use the money left over in your budget to make the space truly your own.
You have the freedom with this option to look at a property as a blank canvas, which you can customise, convert and decorate as you please to make it your ideal home, before you even move in. The key thing to keep in mind is to still choose a property that is suitable to be extended, renovated or have rooms converted as you want. This is where the advice of a contractor like Copperwood Construction can be invaluable.
