Add Extra Space to your Home With a Homeowner Secured Loan

By: David Lynes

Many homeowners know what it feels like to outgrow their property, and when you find that your home is too small for you - for instance, if you now have a larger family than when you first moved in - things can start to feel very restrictive with people falling over one another and fighting over space. However, these days it is getting more and more difficult to uproot and move on to a bigger property because of house prices as well as a reduction in the number of larger properties coming onto the market, possibly as a result of Home Information Packs according to some experts.

There is an alternative solution for those that want to enjoy the benefits of a larger property and either do not wish to uproot the family or cannot find a suitable home in the desired area. Increasing space in your existing home is a very effective way to benefit from the extra space that you need without any undue hassle or inconvenience. You can save yourself a great deal of stress, time, and hassle, as you won't have to uproot the family, and you can enjoy staying in the neighbourhood that you are used to with neighbours that you know and trust, all without having to compromise on the space that you need.

Over recent years property prices in the UK have rocketed, and homeowners can really benefit from this increase in equity by tapping into the value of the home in order to raise the money to increase space within the home. Many lenders offer homeowner secured loans that can be secured against your equity, and you can use this to fund the project, whether it is to build a whole new extension to your home, build a nice conservatory, or even convert unused space such as a loft. With the longer repayment terms and increased borrowing power that is available with homeowner secured loans you should be able to raise the finance that you need based on your equity levels and enjoy affordable monthly repayments.

Another great thing about this solution is that, providing you have a good, professional job done when creating the extra space in your home, you will also be able to add value to your property, so you can look upon your homeowner secured loan as a type of investment. When you do come to sell the property you could easily recoup some or all of the cost of the loan from the increase in the property's value - and in the meantime you get to enjoy the additional space that you need to make your home more comfortable and more practical.
