Will an Added Bedroom Add Value to My Home?


Doesn’t a whole added bedroom sound life-changing? Custom Cape Cod master bedroom additions are in high demand among homeowners who want more comfort, more space and more value added to their home. 

For such a project to be completed within a realistic time frame, proper planning is of essential importance. One of the most important aspects to consider when planning a room addition is how it will blend with the rest of your home. For starters, you have to decide whether to build out or build up

But what else can you do to ensure that this room addition will be a worthwhile investment, one that truly enhances the appeal and value of your property?

Some things are the same anywhere in the world: you can never have enough square footage. But on the Cape, a master bedroom can have a serious impact on the value of a home. Cape Cod properties are often used as vacation homes, but it is not uncommon for homeowners or their tenants to use them for year-round living. 

An added master bedroom can be a significant selling point, as long as it has been well-designed with both aesthetics and functionality in mind. It is difficult to quantify the potential increase in value from an added master bedroom, but it is more than likely to attract buyers and renters alike.

How do I plan a master bedroom addition?

The safest way to plan a master bedroom addition in accordance with your needs, preferences, budget, timeline and the structural requirements of your home is to consult a professional contractor. 

Nevertheless, here are some helpful pointers to ensure your newly added master bedroom has an impact on the value of your home:

  • Ensure that the master bedroom is well-designed and spacious
  • Include high-value features such as ensuite bathrooms or walk-in closets
  • Luxury master bedrooms often lead to an outdoor space, such as a patio or a deck
  • Consider Return on Investment (ROI) projections for master bedrooms and compare that to the cost of adding a master bedroom. Homeowners can expect a 50-75% ROI. But this may not be as relevant to you if you’re not planning on reselling your property any time soon.

If there is a demand for homes with a master bedroom in the local real estate market, which is certainly the case with Cape Cod, it is definitely worth the pursuit. It is also a good idea to do your research beforehand and look at comparable sales in your area to help you determine the increase in value you are looking at with more precision. Narrow the search to homes as similar to yours in terms of size, layout, and added features, including master bedrooms. 

Another important consideration is the overall current condition of your home. It can be difficult to achieve a great jump in value of a home unless the entirety of the home is up-to-date and well-maintained. Likewise, it matters that the style of your new master bedroom matches that of the rest of your home and that it is well-executed and well-integrated with the existing structure. That is where professional workmanship comes into play.
