You may need a home office, be expecting a new addition to the family or simply be outgrowing your current square footage. The thought of buying a bigger home to gain that square footage is exciting, but you may have to make a lot of concessions with the current housing market and mortgage rates. In addition to the cost of your new home, you’re going to need to come up with the money for the move itself, as well as any cosmetic improvements or new furniture needed in the new place. Not to mention the homebuying process being a tedious one. Adding an addition to your home may be the right answer for you and your family. A kitchen bump-out can increase the square footage of your kitchen and allow space for more countertops and a marble island. A new mudroom can be relatively cost-effective and opens up the rest of the house by adding more extra space and an airy breezeway for more storage. Adding or expanding a porch or clo
sing an existing porch in with screens or sliding glass doors to make it a more versatile space for entertaining. An attic can be converted into a beautiful sunroom, or (zoning permitting) the garage can be modified into a studio apartment for guests and visitors. Remodeling a bathroom is a critical part of the facelift of any home. These types of changes can vary from replacing the amenities or adding to the actual layout of the bathroom. Adding square footage can increase the value of your home if done right. You would have the ability to design the space to fit your family’s needs. You won’t have to pack your entire home’s full of belongings, hire movers, leave a neighborhood you love, and unpack. Adding on to your home could increase its value. If your home is one of the smaller ones in your neighborhood, if you live in a higher-value neighborhood, or in a fast-appreciating housing market,
you may be able to add the square footage you need AND increase the value of your home by more than the cost of the improvements.
