BuildStore Financial Services has revealed it saw a rise in the number of people requesting self-build mortgage packages in the first quarter of 2011.
Bosses at the firm noted an extra 30 per cent of loans were secured for this purpose compared with the corresponding period in 2010.
Self-build expert Barry Sutcliffe has suggested more people are wising up to the fact they can build a bigger house within a £100,000 to £150,000 budget than they could get through an estate agent.
Mr Sutcliffe added that it is possible to construct a home with four or five bedrooms for this amount, but concessions need to be made elsewhere.
House-proud domestic cleaning enthusiasts may have their heart set on a top quality kitchen, but Mr Sutcliffe highlighted this as an area where savings can be made.
"You don't need to spend £20,000 or £30,000 on a kitchen - if you've got a budget of £100,000 on your whole house you can get a very nice kitchen for around £3,500 or £4,000," he remarked.
