When a family has outgrown a house, moving is not the only option. Home renovations and additions offer an appealing solution to gain space without uprooting everybody. Check out the benefits of adding square footage to an existing home.
No Need to Start Over
Expanding the house’s footprint instead of moving elsewhere means continuing with an established routine without major interruptions. Everyone in the household gets to keep enjoying the comforts and amenities of a familiar home. When considering all the positives of your current house and location, it becomes clear that a lot would be missed. There’s no need to start over when home renovations can add the extra space needed while preserving a cherished way of life.
No Realtor Fees or Moving Costs
In addition to being a disruptive major life change, moving is expensive. Realtor fees associated with selling a house can easily reach upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. Hiring a moving company also involves thousands of dollars. Even a do-it-yourself move, which is a time-consuming, massive endeavor, comes with significant costs, including boxes, packing supplies, and moving truck rental. If the costs and hassle of moving don’t sound appealing, consider renovations instead.
Add Value to Your Home
Much-needed updates add style, while additions increase usable space, both of which increase a home’s value. Home renovations such as kitchen and bathroom remodel, a new bedroom, or an enclosed porch create a more inviting atmosphere for residents and visitors alike. Should there be a move in the future, these additions that make the house more comfortable for the whole family also raise the asking price when it’s time to sell.
