Me and my husband have an ongoing conversation about if our current home is our forever home. Now I love our home, we both do. It’s big enough, its in a lovely area and it’s in walking distance from Meme’s school. For me I could stay here forever. My husband, although he loves it here, he is always looking for the next potential move.
Although we may never move I do think it is the sensible option to always try and increase the value of our home. You never know what is around the corner and ultimately it is always a good idea to invest some money into your property. Ultimately if we do decide to stay here it will one day go to our children and we want to do the best for them. A friend recently had her home revalued after adding a conservatory and a garage conversion and it added a lot of value although obviously there could have been other contributing factors.
Assuming we stay for long enough we have some grand plans to grow our home with us as our children get older whilst also hopefully adding some value. Starting with our favourite room, we plan to to extend this area into a much larger family area. The downside of this is it will reduce our garden which we currently love. To slightly compensate we hope to remove some of a large border currently at the back of the garden. Naturally, we also plan to redecorate when necessary making sure our home doesn’t become tired and is inline with current trends.
Is your home your forever home? If so, how do you plan to add value to your property?
