Don’t move – Improve!
An addition is the biggest home remodeling purchase you will ever make.
The tough real estate market makes it difficult for homeowners to upgrade to newer or larger living space. So the best option is to stay where you are, but make it better. Best part of it is that not only it will make your life more enjoyable but it enhances the value of your home. Just look at this cost/value study by Remodeling Magazine that reveals which home improvements add the most resale value after one year:
|Project||Job Cost $||Resale Value $||Cost recouped %|
|Major Kitchen Remodel||42536||58600||138%|
|Minor Kitchen Remodel||17559||24700||141%|
|Two Story addition||79356||104580||138%|
Advantages of Building an Addition:
High Cost-Value Ratio
Studies show that nearly all of the cost of a mid-range two-story addition may be recovered at time of sale.
Less Expensive than Purchasing New House
While this might seem like a "no-brainer," it needs to be mentioned. It is typically cheaper to build an addition than to buy a new home that equals the space of your existing house plus addition. At the very least, the closing costs involved with selling your old house and buying the new house would push this option over the top.
Addition is 100% Your Creation
You may have an old house, but the addition is space that you can claim as your own. It's like designing a whole new house without the expense of a whole new house. Fire up your design software and go for it!
Smartest Way to Add Space to House
When you objectively look at the various ways to add space to your house, addition-building clearly comes out ahead of other methods, such as basement/attic remodeling or adding a sun porch.
