Home Additions That Add Home Value as Well as Space
These spaces add to your home and your home value.
If you plan to sell your home at some point, then you probably spend some time thinking about home value. The housing market constantly fluctuates, and it’s a good idea to keep up with features that add home value so that you can stay competitive. A home addition is a great way to add value to your home, because it adds both space and function to your home. Here are a few of the best home additions that can boost your home value, as well:
A Home Office
With the quarantine and social distancing still in effect, home offices are more vital than ever. However, even before the COVID-19 panic, home offices were rising in popularity. More and more people are able to work remotely, and some like to have a home office to pursue their hobbies such as writing, photo editing, and so on. A well-lit home office is a great feature to add to your listing; and it’s flexible, as well. Homebuyers can easily convert a home office into a gym or hobby space, or even an extra bedroom, if they choose.
A Finished Basement
Another incredibly versatile space, is a finished basement. Have you ever bought a house with an unfinished basement, come up with ideas for what you wanted to do with it once it was finished, and then never got around to it? It’s a common issue. So when homebuyers see a basement that’s already finished and ready to be their game room, entertainment room, extra suite, etc., they’ll be more eager to buy the home for themselves and probably willing to pay more for the basement.
A Second Story
The addition of a second story can be an involved process, but it’s sure to add value to your home. In the everchanging housing market, one of the few constants is that two-story homes are by their nature worth more than single story homes. They make the perfect home for a big family or for a group of friends who want to enjoy each other’s company and have their own space. And with a trustworthy, experienced home addition contractor, installing a second story will be as stress-free as possible.
