How to Add Value to Your House With a Home Addition

05/30/2022

Expanding your home is a great way to increase its value. More and more Cape Cod homeowners have been choosing a home addition lately for this very reason. The addition will not only increase the size of your home, but will also make it more appealing to potential buyers. 

If you’re thinking about expanding your home, be sure to consult with a professional contractor to get started. In the following article, we’ll take a closer look at how to get the most out of your home improvement project and boost your property value. 

Is it worth it to build a home addition?

Is it worth it to build a home addition?

A home addition can be a great investment, providing extra space and increasing the value of your home. However, It can also be a major undertaking, requiring careful planning and execution

If you’re considering an addition, it’s worth taking the time to explore everything you need to know. One of the biggest advantages of an addition is that it can give you extra living space without the hassle and expense of buying a new home.

And because you’re not starting from scratch, you’ll likely save money on construction costs. Also, an addition can make your home more attractive to potential buyers, should you decide to sell in the future. 

What home additions add the most value to a house?

What home additions add the most value to a house?

It’s important to consult with a room addition contractor before making any major changes to a property. They will be able to provide guidance on which additions are most likely to add value to a home in the current market. Here are four home additions that are more likely to add significant value than others:

1. Sunroom addition

A sunroom is a room typically added onto the south side of a house that is mainly made of glass. Sunrooms are often used as a sitting room or place to grow plants, as they provide a bright space that is not exposed to the elements. 

In addition to being a nice place to relax, these rooms can also add a significant amount of value to a house. On days when you can’t make it to one of the beaches in Dennis, you can get plenty of sun exposure in your own house.

2. Second story addition

A second story addition can provide a much-needed increase in space without the expense and disruption of moving to a new home. A well-designed second story can seamlessly blend in with the existing architecture of your home, while also providing an opportunity to update the style and improve its overall curb appeal. 

Plus, the additional living space can be used to create a more functional layout, or even be converted into rental income. 

3. Porch remodeling

A porch remodel can be a great investment for your home. Not only does it increase curb appeal, but it can also add significant value to your property.

A porch is one of the first things that potential buyers will see when they view your home, so it’s important to make sure that it’s in good condition. A well-designed porch can add thousands of dollars to your home’s sale price.

4. Kitchen remodeling

A kitchen remodel is one of the most popular home improvement projects because it can have such a dramatic impact on the value of a house. A well-designed kitchen not only looks beautiful, but is also functional and convenient. 

Whether you’re planning to sell your house in the near future or you just want to enjoy your own cooking more, a kitchen remodel is always a smart investment.
