    Are you wondering how to get the most out of your home's value by adding an addition?

    There are a number of great add-ons you can consider in order to raise the value and curb appeal, should you ever want to sell in the future.


Here are five of the best add-ons:

1. Bedroom in the Attic or Basement

One add-on that you can consider in order to add a lot of value to your home is a bedroom in the attic or basement. As you probably realize, a home that has four bedrooms, instead of three, will bring more when looking for a buyer. Though you might have to put several thousands into this home improvement project, real estate professionals estimate that you can get a profit of up to 75% when you sell your home in the future.

But there are a lot of options for saving money and maximizing the return on your investment. The are many different aspects of this add on that you could do yourself, saving money along the way. Just make sure to know the different parts that you work on and that you are working with quality materials. Just visit your local hardware store. They will have everything from lumber to nuts and bolts and professional who can offer tips and guidance.

2. A Full Bath

If it’s a structural possibility, consider expanding any half baths in your home into full baths. Even a standing shower can bring a nice return when it comes to the sale of your home, as buyers are going to prefer a full bath to a half bath.

3. A Home Office

With more and more people working from home, home office additions can be a wonderful choice when you are looking to add on to your home. Not only will you be able to boast about the home office if you come to sell your home, you also may find a use for it yourself, as everyone needs a place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

4. Outdoor Deck or Patio

Another addition that can add a lot of value to your home is an outdoor deck or patio. Depending on what you like, a patio can be a slab patio, or one that is enclosed. If you enclose it, in some areas of the country, you can use it all year long. In others, it can be seen as a three season room.

5. An Expanded Kitchen

If you have room on your property and your kitchen is on the smaller side, the expansion of the kitchen can also add a lot of value. If you have ever been around people who are buying a home, typically the first thing they will talk about is the kitchen. Buyers love a large kitchen, and if you make it an eat-in kitchen, it will even be better.

These are just a few of the add-ons you can consider if you are interested in boosting the value of your home, but they are the most significant, and will give you the best return on your investment.
