If you create a residence (Using this bukkit mod) you may need to enlarge it later on. Unfortunatelly, I see no way to put an area of residence in residence selection - so that I expand it.
This is what I imagine:

/res select resarea Home
 - selects area of existing residence - this command is what I need, but can't find
/res select expand 5
 - expand selected area
/res area replace Home main
 - replace old area wtih the new expanded one

What about /res area? According to the wiki: /res area [add/remove/replace] <residence> [areaID] - Add or remove areas to the residence. These can overlap with areas of the same residence. – It'sNotALie. Sep 7 '13 at 14:28
Unfortunately, there is a limit of 2 areas per residence. This is because the areas are not simply concatenated with the old area, but created as new objects. – Tomáš Zato Sep 9 '13 at 16:31

What you could do instead of using a command to select the region is to mark the residence you want with the wooden axe and set that as a residence. Then you can remove the original residence(Home). This may be done before you make the enlarged residence.

Here is a useful guide to expand a residence

The first step to expanding an existing residence is to select the entire residence into our selection “clipboard.” Every residence has at least one area. By default, that area is called “main” and occupies the entire residence. To select the entire residence, you need to select that area. Replace the word YourResName with the name of the residence you wish to expand.

/res select residence YourResName main

in your case you would use

/res select residence Home main
