Bathroom Additions: What You Need to Know
Aside from your kitchen, there is no room in your home more valuable than the bathroom. So, whether you want to increase your home’s re-sale value or just add a new room to your existing home, a bathroom addition is an effective and efficient way of achieving this end. However, that being said, three important points to consider include:
Full Baths Over Half Baths
The fact of the matter is that if you are going to go to the bother of having a new bath installed in your home, then you need to make sure that it is a full rather than half option. Recent research indicates that adding a half bath to your home will increase its value by 10%. However, the addition of a full bath will offer a value increase of 20% for your home.
Know Your Neighborhood
The simple fact of the matter is before you decide on adding a new bathroom to your home, you need to take a look at where you live. The reality is that if you live in one of the nicest neighborhoods in town, then adding a bathroom worth $20,000 may actually result in diminishing returns rather than any real benefit for your home.
Weigh the Intangibles
One of the final points to consider when you are adding a bathroom to your home is that money isn’t everything. The simple fact is that if unhappy family members are standing in line to share a bathroom, you may not care whether you fully recoup the cost of the new addition in any future re-sale. So, while it is important to ensure that you are aware of the costs of new additions and renovations, the reality is that you can’t always put a price-tag on your family’s harmony.
