How Home Additions Increase your Homes Value

Are you interested in adding more living space to your home? Home additions can be expensive, but well worth the investment.

At Kastler Construction, Inc., our home design experts work efficiently so you and your family can enjoy your latest home addition as soon as possible.

How can home additions increase the value of my house?

Any time you add more living space to your home, its value within the housing market increases. However, certain home additions will give you a greater return on your investment than others. For example, HouseLogic places the average return on investment for bathroom additions at 52%.

Adding another bathroom can also be great for reducing foot trafficin your only available bathroom during the early morning rush. Instead of starting your day fighting for bathroom time with your family, why not add another bathroom to your home? Bathroom additions can help reduce family conflict and stress. At Kastler Construction, Inc., we can work with you to get your new bathroom designed, constructed, and ready for use.

Likewise, if your family is growing, or if you plan on housing a friend or relative for a longer period of time, you may be interested in adding another bedroom to your home. At Kastler Construction, Inc., we can help your home grow to accommodate the changing needs of your family.

While more specialized rooms (such as sunrooms or home offices) may not provide as much value when competing against similarly priced houses, they can improve your quality of life. If you plan on staying in your home for many more years to come, you may find it worthwhile to choose a home addition that complements your lifestyle. When we think of value, money is often the first thing that pops into our heads. However, your happiness with your home should also be considered in this equation.

It all comes down to your needs as a homeowner. If you are looking to sell your home in the near future, you may be better off investing in a more utilitarian room. However, if you plan to stay in your home for decades to come, why not treat yourself to a room that fits your needs right now?

How much is too much?

While adding new space to your home can be a wise business move, you also don’t want to own the most expensive house on the block. If this happens, it can deter prospective homebuyers who would rather live in a more upscale neighborhood for the same amount of money. Make sure that any home additions you approve are consistent with your neighborhood’s architectural style and price range.
