1. You love your suburb (and your neighbours!)
You may absolutely love your current area – the neighbours, the nearby shops, the local doggy park. If you love it, why leave? Your neighbourhood is your tribe – it’s where you feel most comfortable, where you feel most at home! You may live in an established community, close to your family and friends. If your kids go to school nearby, it would be a shame to move them away from all their friends. These are all good reasons to stay where you are.
While you love your suburb, you may have the worst house in the best street. If that’s the case, it makes good sense to knock it down and build the dream house you deserve.
It’s not always easy to find the perfect suburb or the perfect street. But if you are living in it, knocking down and rebuilding your property means you won’t need to move anywhere.
