Extend Now…. and definitely ….Move Later! 

Updated: May 29, 2023

Against a background of unprecedented happenings, affecting every aspect of our daily lives right now, financial challenges are certain to be to the fore for all as the testing uncertain momentum of the Winter ahead edges nearer.

The energy crisis …the cost of living pressures…inflation issues and so.. so much more, look set to play a key part in developing unheard of uncertainty for most both in near future and on into the New Year ahead.

homes sales momentum

Regarding the property biz in all its facets at this time, it seems a fair bet home sales momentum is surely set to slow dramatically as ‘now-time’ living amid all the uncertainty becomes very much our ‘daily lot’ for the Winter ahead ….and almost certainly, also, well into next year…. and beyond!

safer scenario

Looking forward from now suggests to us to that it seems inevitable, the property market will stutter, even stumble, to an extent for a while yet . We suggest that home improvement and extension will remain a safer more containable, manageable scenario for many homeowners if they need more space and improvement at home for the nearer future…….

better bet

Our feeling is that the stance of our long-standing initiative of ‘Extend Now - Move Later’ seems a fairer, more appropriate consideration for many homeowners in the face of today’s increasing life uncertainties easing into the up and coming Winter ahead.


We feel a period of ‘quite major’ slow down in home moves will be emerging from now, as homeowners ‘battle’ to cope with paying for what they already have, as opposed to taking on the expense and extra pressures of a ‘full-on’ home move.

slowing prices

Certainly then this year, more than over the past three years or so, from now, house prices may well slow more generally, as people, with an eye to current, rising home expenses - led by energy uncertainty and more - will, in many cases, ‘count out’ a feasible home move for some time to come

feasible AND best

Home improvement projects, we feel, WILL come more and more to the fore as THE feasible and ‘best choice’ approach for homeowners through this Winter and also next Spring, and on into the Summer and Autumn periods of 2023!

add value

Carrying out extension and renovation projects will certainly, on the one hand improve life at home of course and ,also, add vital value to property, which could then, in time, surely help redress the financial pressures which will surely pile up upon us through the up and coming Winter and on into next year.


Home improvement and extension may surely be, we think, THE more surefooted and realistic proposition approach in these unprecedented times. Tough decisions are ahead for all of us, so good luck and our best wishes for whatever you decide for you and yours……
