Should I Renovate or Buy a New Home?

You love your home, its location and area but… its space is getting a bit too tight for your growing family and, besides, it’s no longer quite as modern as you would like. So, what do you do – stay and renovate, or buy a new home?


It’s a tricky decision! Each option has pros and cons to evaluate when deciding what’s best for you, your family and your financial situation…

Buy a new home?

  • It might take quite a while for you to find the right home in the right area at the right price!
  • Finding your dream home is ideal but what if you cannot find what you are looking for or it is beyond your budget? 
  • A new home comes with transfer fees, bond cancellation fees and various other expenses such as removal costs, possibly new school uniforms, fees, extra travel etc. and may well need some renovating itself. Will this be affordable for you?

Renovate your home?

  • It’s great to renovate if you have a reliable building contractor.
  • If you prefer to have complete creative freedom in choosing the materials and fixtures for your home.
  • Most people want to maximise on their renovation and make a profit when it’s time to sell.
  • Have a valuation of your property done by a certified property professional to ensure that the cost of your renovations will not mean that your house becomes overpriced for the area – making it difficult to sell in the future. But what if it means your house will become overpriced? 
  • Usually renovating the kitchen, bathrooms and adding a bedroom will safely add value to your property.

Patio Enclosures

If your patio is open, it is a vulnerable point of entry. Add expandable security doors to your patio sliding doors to prevent easy intrusion. By enclosing your patio it offers you numerous valuable benefits:  

  • It expands the living space of your home.
  • It blends the interior of your home with the exterior. 
  • When opened up, it will let in lots of light and sunshine and patio activities can still be enjoyed even in inclement weather. 
  • When fully opened will reveal 85 – 90% of the doorway.
  • When fitted with expandable security doors and slam-locked, this heightened security will give you peace of mind – so you can safely leave your children to play unsupervised there whilst you are busy elsewhere inside your home and you can sleep secure and easy at night.
  • It affords you many multi-purpose uses – e.g. as an entertainment area for the family or for hosting parties, a sunroom, or as a TV room for watching sports or movies.
  • It can also be used as safe sleeping quarters for your dogs.
  • As an additional living space, it increases the value of your property.
