Many growing families will eventually have to choose between expanding their current home or moving to a new home. While there are pros and cons to both options, adding on to your current home often makes more financial sense. Read today’s article from Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling, your trusted home improvement company, to find out why staying put may be the smarter “move.”
Moving Is Never Easy
Apart from dealing with the hassles of decluttering and packing things, moving to a new home involves steep, unavoidable costs. You may have to pay a fee to set up new utility accounts, deal with land transfer taxes, and tackle some minor or major renovations that can add up quickly. That doesn’t even factor in the cost of hiring movers.
Adding Value to Your Property
Pursuing home remodeling to create additional space in your home should add value to your property. For instance, if some of the houses in your neighborhood have three bedrooms and yours only has two, you can add an extra one to increase your property’s value. Consult with the pros to determine whether your plan will bring back a sizeable return for your investment.
Establishing a Dream Home
Barring any zoning restrictions, a home addition helps you achieve the dream home you’ve always wanted. This is often easier and more affordable than going through the difficulty of searching for a new home that matches your specifications. By adding a second story or finishing the basement, you can transform your home without losing its original charm.
