When considering adding on to your home, it is important to think about what home additions add the most value to your property. While you want to add on to your home to give yourself more space, or give a new stylish element to your home, why not also choose a home addition that will make your investment worthwhile?
While some home addition projects will not add value to your home and can even detract potential buyers in the future (such as adding a swimming pool), others will absolutely increase the value of your home and the cost of the addition will be recouped in the long run.
One of the first home additions to consider is adding an additional bathroom, especially if your home only has one existing bathroom. You can even find space to add a bathroom in a guest bedroom or a large closet that is underused. Generally, adding an additional bathroom to your home will add more than $20,000 of value to your home.
You should also consider adding another bedroom to your home. Adding a master suite home addition will add significant value to your home, as will adding a family room or a sunroom. Adding a garage to your home is also a worthwhile addition to consider.
Another home addition to consider when wanting to increase the value of your home is putting on a deck or patio. A deck is considered an outdoor living space and with more people opting to spend their vacations and down time at home, making your backyard more appealing goes a long way to increasing your home’s value.
If you love your neighborhood and your home, adding a home addition is the perfect way to give yourself your dream home without the hassle of buying a different home and moving. Home additions give you total design control to make that bathroom, master suite or sun room, whatever addition you are opting for, exactly the way you want it.
When done correctly, a home addition not only leaves the customer happy with the result, it also adds value to the client’s home, elevating the asking price when the client decides to list the home for sale.
