Buying a house seems impossible at the moment. Prices are skyrocketing and if you want to buy something you have to have at least won the lottery. And yet there seems to be a run on houses, they are not yet for sale or have already been sold.
If you can’t buy a bigger house
But what if you can’t buy a bigger house? Every time you go after the nest in bids, or there is no starter home to find. Or if you just love your home and don’t want to leave, but you notice that it’s not big at all. Do you both work at home and maybe this is something for the future??
Do you remodel your living room every morning to put down your laptop or do you have your own study? Do you also notice that you are getting a bit fed up with the space in your house? That you feel it is so small and you might want to make it look bigger for yourself too?
