As a family grows, it often outgrows its surroundings. This can happen multiple times over the course of a family’s life cycle. A one-bedroom apartment that suited a single adult fine can feel cramped for a married couple, and their slightly larger starter house can feel tight once the first baby is born. By the time the couple has a few children, that house can feel too small, and the couple might consider buying a larger home. This isn’t the last time a couple’s home can feel inappropriately sized – once the children are grown and gone, many couples downsize. Some eventually move into their grown children’s homes in basement apartments or mother-in-law suites.
Instead of buying a larger home when yours starts to feel too small, consider an addition to your home. By choosing a room addition over starting fresh in a new house, you can stay in the home where you’ve already put down your roots. You can also avoid the financial and logistical hassles of moving.
Our company builds a variety of room types for our clients. They include:
During your initial consultation with us, talk to us about your home’s current layout and your ideas for the size and use of your addition. We could potentially find a more efficient way to use your space or provide insight about your needs and addition to steer you toward a project that will be a better value for you.
Choosing an addition over a move can save you money in the long run by cutting out closing costs and realtor fees. It can also spare you from the headaches of listing and showing your home in hope of attracting a buyer who will pay what you need them to pay for you to come out of the transaction without losing money while finding the right new house for your family.
Adding onto your home can increase its value. When you decide to sell the home later, it can command a higher price and put more money in your pocket based on your equity in the home. One way a room addition can be especially valuable is if you own a multifamily property. Adding a second or third bedroom onto the unit you rent out justifies a higher rent price, meaning greater cashflow to you as a landlord.
