We at Mint are pleased to report, that here in Cheltenham and The Cotswolds this early New Year, home extension and renovation enquiries has been markedly on the up. We are working a key project currently but the enquiries for potential extension work later on in the Spring is good news indeed.

Price is obviously very much to the fore along with the key decision as whether one goes for an extension to your current home instead of coping with the expense of a move to a totally new property.

Homes Renovator Expert Michael Holmes of realhomes.com has recently been checking up on home extension value out there in the marketplace right now. Michael offers some telling guidance to those pondering a £30,000 – £50,000 home extension, of course highlighting that making the most of your existing property by extending for under £50,000, can make a lot more financial sense than selling up and moving on.

He continues – “For sure you can still add significant value, even in the current climate – if you choose the right project. You may have big plans to undertake a house extension, but, how far will your available budget stretch? Before making plans, you need to get an idea of what can be done with the money you have available.
