Moving into a bigger house isn’t always the logical solution to accommodate a growing family or the need for more space. In most cases, tackling a home addition is the more practical direction to make.
Here are the benefits of seeking professional home building services rather than contacting a real estate agent:
It seems strange to use the word “convenient” to describe a major renovation project, but it’s the lesser stressor when compared with relocation. While a home addition can upend your life for weeks or months, it’s less time-consuming and energy-draining than transferring your life from one location to another.
Moving involves more than just sorting out all of your belongings; it entails leaving your friends and updating your records. The level of adjustment your family has to endure can be stressful. If you love your current home and neighborhood, explore viable home additions before considering moving.
If you’re banking on the proceeds from your house sale to buy a significantly larger property, don’t get your hopes up. According to Zillow, typical home sellers only earned less than $39,000 on average in 2017. Moving to a more expensive market can lessen the value of your money because of higher property prices.
Furthermore, buying a new house doesn’t necessarily eliminate the need to pursue immediate home improvements. A pre-loved property could reveal problems after the purchase. Surprise electrical, plumbing and HVAC problems can hurt your pocketbook later on. Plus, don’t forget about professional moving fees and other related expenses, like storage costs.
Experts in masonry and carpentry services would attest that an efficient layout could solve your space concerns without moving to a larger house. Adopting an open floor plan is an elegant solution to create an illusion of more space. Finishing an underutilized area is another trick to maximize your home’s square footage.
