You found the perfect home…10 years ago. You love the house and you cannot imagine leaving the neighborhood. But you need more space. What do you do? Consider an addition to your home? If you have the space, it is a great way to create more livable room. Here are a few great reasons to add an addition to your home.

STAY IN YOUR HOME

Your home has so many great memories that it can be devastating to think of leaving. You have those special places in your house where your kids took their first steps or where you always put the Christmas tree. Your home is more than 4 walls, a roof, and a floor. It is part of our history.

STAY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

The only thing harder than leaving a home you love is leaving the neighborhood. Your friends, your kid’s friends, schools, etc., are all parts of society that make a neighborhood special. If you are forced to move out of your neighborhood because your home is now too small, you are giving up so much more than just a house.

AN ADDITION MAY BOOST YOUR HOME’S VALUE

Most of us know that home prices are based on “price per square foot” for the most part. There are many elements that go into making up the value, but a large part of it is dependent on how much “livable space” you have. Adding finished square footage can boost your home’s property value and resale price. If your home were 2,500 square feet and homes are selling at $150 per square foot, adding 500 square feet to your home could bring you an extra $75,000 or so (depending on the type of addition). You likely will not get 100% of your addition back in resale value, but it is a nice benefit to capture some of it back.
