It's all those extra charges that make selling and buying a house so very expensive. It costs literally thousands and thousands of pounds to move house so do bear this in mind if you are thinking of moving. You won't see a lot for your money and once it's gone it's gone - it's a necessary evil. First of all you will have to negotiate the fees with the estate agent who is handling the sale or the purchase of your proposed property - either way there are fees involved.
Some changes can lessen the value of your home so, whether it is for your own enjoyment or, if you are considering putting the house on the market at some stage in the future, think carefully before you redecorate or carry out home improvements as you may well end up having to rip them out and it could cost you a lot of money, whereas a little consideration and planning means you can make the desired changes but not waste the money when you come to sell.
