Improving your home instead of selling.

As house prices are falling and fewer houses are selling, we feel it is better to stay put and upgrade our home instead of selling. Do others feel this is the better solution to having what one wants, without having to move from their beloved home?

  • If that works for you then great, the sad thing is sometimes people have no choice about selling their property which is a shame. What I will say is that correctly priced property are still selling

  • If you don't need to sell then why not stay? Moving is expensive and if you don't feel it is worth it for you, staying and making your current house what you want is the practical solution. We have tried to sell in the past, even considered selling this summer, but it just isn't worth it for the money we would achieve so we too would rather stay in our current home. Many people feel the same, it helps when you love your home:)

  • The above answers are both very much correct. The market is tougher than it has been for a long time, but correctly priced stock will still sell. At all times a certain percentage of the market will have to sell/move or trade and this won't change. if you are tarding up the property you are after will have decreased as well, so the gap rarely changes. You are right however, upgrading a property for your benefit is never going to harm. Mark is right when the option is choice is removed from you in the market thats when things get tough.
