Before You Add On To Your Arlington Home – Read This!

First of all, if you are one of those homeowners who intends to add onto your current house for more space, instead of move, pat yourself on the back. There is a lot to be said for making the wise choice to remain in the place that you and your family already call home. That being said, are you aware yet of what you are getting yourself into? Relocating can be beyond stressful, as well as a major disruption to your life. Yet, if you don't familiarize yourself with the process of home improvement work as intensive as an addition, you may find yourself feeling exactly the same way!

Make the Most of Your Room Addition

If you are an Arlington homeowner toying with the idea of adding on to your existing home, there are a few questions to consider:

What is the purpose?

The most common reason that homeowners choose to add on is that the family dynamics have changed which requires more space. An adult child moves home, two growing kids need separate rooms, an in-law is moving in, you need more space for long term guests – you get the picture. However, you could just want recreational space, to enlarge your master bedroom or to invest back into your home to maximize the property value. So why sell the place you call home sweet home and go through the hassle of relocating, when you could add on?

Do you have a realistic budget?

The truth of the matter is that while a home renovation project of this magnitude does require an upfront investment, moves are not as cheap as people tend to erroneously believe. You usually end up taking care of demands from the potential buyers you were not expecting, may have required repairs due to the home inspection, plus closing costs, hiring movers, renting storage, possibly even paying for temporary lodging between the two homes.

Is there a way to make it look seamless?

The finished results should be that the new addition looks as though it was always part of the home, otherwise what is the point? So you need to have enough space to work with, as well as a true industry expert, in order to make that happen. A cohesive look will create a flawless final appearance, and results that increase the property value. If you can spot the home addition, it will have the exact opposite effect.
