Home Extensions In Leamington
In May 2019, planning permission laws changed – temporary rules which allowed homeowners to build bigger single-storey rear extensions without a full planning application were made permanent. As a result, the popularity and accessibility of home extensions have increased, and as Leamington estate agents we strongly recommend considering whether a house extension could be right for you.
Building Home Extensions
If your house is on a decently-sized plot of land, then it is certainly worth looking into the value home extensions could bring to your property. There are many reasons to consider an extension for your home. If it is a property you plan to stay in for a long time, or if you have been unable to find a house that perfectly suits your needs, then an extension is a great solution – allowing you to create more space for you and your family, or customise your home and really make it your own.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to sell or considering doing so in the future, extensions can be a great tool to increase the saleability of your property. For example, adding a bedroom or extending the kitchen into a modern open-plan space can increase the value of your property and have the potential to be a great investment. Buying a house with the scope to extend also means you may be able to purchase a property at a lower cost than one already extended, giving you time to save and plan for future work.
Always be sure to check if you need planning permission before starting any extension work on your property. If you have any questions about the process for this or need any advice, feel free to get in touch with our team of expert Leamington Spa estate agents on 01926 832411 or via our contact form.
Buying an already extended property
Home extensions in Leamington Spa are becoming increasingly popular, meaning many houses for sale in Leamington and the surrounding Warwickshire area come pre-extended. Leamington Spa is home to many period properties, such as those from the Victorian and Georgian eras.
Buying an extended property in this area can mean you’re able to find houses that have been modernised and are more spacious, whilst still retaining their original period features. As estate agents in Warwickshire, we have a number of properties available that have been extended. Feel free to browse our listings to find houses for sale in Leamington Spa or get in touch for recommendations if you are interested in this type of property.
Another benefit of purchasing a pre-extended property is the peace of mind knowing everything is paid for and completed, meaning you can move into a completed home. Whilst extending your home has many benefits, moving into a home that has already been extended means you know exactly how much you will be paying upfront, and saves you doing the logistical planning for the time and money needed to complete an extension project.
