Well, you’re not the only one!
According to HomeAdvisor, the service company that helps homeowners find local home services, homeowners spend about $20,703 – $71,423 in order to build an addition to their home.
But how much would a room addition cost you?
At Bright Haven Properties, we’ve been managing real estate in Charlotte for some time now, and we’ve learned a thing or two about adding a room to a home.
Here’s a breakdown of the costs to consider.
Addition Costs In Your Market
Every market is different, even when it comes to adding a room to a home. The best course of action is to get quotes from local architects and contractors. Compare and pick the one that best works for you.
Consider Room Size
You probably assume that a bigger room will be more expensive. And that’s true, except when it comes to the price per square foot. In fact, usually, the cost per square foot of this type of project decreases as the size of your room increases. So it’s not always better to go small.
Consider Room Placement
One of the biggest cost factors for an addition is its placement. Second-floor room additions, for instance, are usually more expensive than first-floor additions. This is something to check with local contractors and architects as well.
Consider Upgrading to a bigger home
Another option is to sell your home and upgrade to a bigger home that better fits your needs. In fact, at Bright Haven Properties, we can purchase your home for a fair cash price, as-is, in as little as two weeks. Give us a call at 704-461-0576 to learn more!
