In today's property market, there has been a huge increase in self-builds and home-improvements such as extensions and development.
It's often considered cheaper - although not necessarily simpler - to extend the houses we are already in, or to buy a plot and erect our own 'dream home'. No strangers to this habit in Australia, my brother in Sydney is doing just that - when the house they bought 2 years ago proved unsuitable to extend as they'd wished, down it came and in its place a new timber frame construction to their own specifications.
And if a complete new build is not to your taste - or budget - you could always do what my brother-in-law is doing, in extending their new house to fit their requirements. Bought as a project, they're moving bedrooms, building an extension, and generally bringing the house into the modern era - at a fraction of the cost of buying outright the size house they desire.
