Successful home additions can add space, functionality and comfort to your Ashburn, VA home. But when it comes time to sell, some have a better return on investment than others. So which ones have the biggest pay off?
Whether our clients have young kids or teens, the one thing they long for is another bathroom (apparently it’s key to keeping the peace among siblings in a growing family)! The good news is, adding a bathroom to a house is sure to boost value. Whether converting an existing half-bath on the main floor, creating a “Jack-and-Jill” bathroom upstairs, or adding an indulgent master spa, regardless of size, buyers will be looking for functional space, modern aesthetics, and up-to-date fixtures.
Upon sale of your home, you can expect to recoup 80 to 130 percent of the addition cost, says HGTV.
Wooden deck addition
In our rapidly expanding area, often homes were built without a suitable outdoor deck for everyday living. Adding a deck is an easy way to instantly provide additional space to your home without breaking the bank. Whether you like to entertain family and friends or are looking for a little oasis to enjoy the outdoors, this functional and versatile home improvement is affordable – and has strong buyer appeal.
U.S. Money reports that a wooden deck recoups on average nearly 81 percent of the project’s cost when you sell your home.
Taking your home to the next level is undoubtedly the most expensive option for your home. However, when looking to add significant space – and significant value, building an addition is the solution that accomplishes both goals at the same time. Just be sure to check local zoning and HOA regulations in your area before you spend time and money developing your plans.
Wondering if the costly investment is worth it? You’ll recoup nearly 70 percent on your investment, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value Report.
