4 Reasons to Consider a Room AdditionJanuary 26, 2019 7:00 pm
Are you starting to feel a little cramped in your current home? Maybe your kids are sharing a room and it just isn’t working anymore, or maybe you need more storage capacity. Whatever it is that has you feeling like you’re out of space, our team at NBA Builders has the answer – and it’s not to call a realtor! Instead of putting your home on the market and searching for a larger one, consider a room addition to solve your space needs. Our general contractors will be glad to work with you, and you’ll be amazed at what we can do with your current property. Below are just a few benefits to staying put in your current home.
1. More Affordable
It is typically less expensive to build an addition than to buy a larger home that is equivalent to the space of your existing house plus an addition. At the very least, the closing costs and other fees involved with selling your current house and buying the new house would push this option over the top. Finally, you’ll avoid the stress of selling your home, so it’s a win-win.
2. Avoid Relocating
Relocating can be a major drawback of moving. Depending on how long you’ve lived in your current home, you may be quite involved in your neighborhood. Also, if you have school-aged children, you may not want to transfer schools and it may be hard to find another home in your current district. Finally, consider your commute. Your drive to and from work may not be as simple in a new location. So, consider a room addition and continue enjoying your current community.
3. Save Time
Starting such a large project can seem daunting and time-consuming, but it’s actually faster to build an addition than to move. When you consider how long it takes to ready your house for market, get it listed and sold, find a new house, pack up your all of your belongings, and finally move into a new home after closing, it would have been much faster to build the addition.
You may have an older home that was initially created by a builder and subsequently changed over the years by other homeowners. When you install new floors, paint the walls, or remodel a bathroom, you are adding your unique touch to the original home. However, a room addition is space that you can legitimately claim as your own creation. Building an addition is like designing a whole new house without the expense of a whole new house.
