HOW the Benefits of Building Will Outweigh Home Addition Costs

If you have been considering building a custom home addition, you have probably also been thinking about the project in terms of home addition costs. The costs may seem daunting at first. You’ve likely thought about not only the financial costs, but also the commitment to investing your time, mental involvement that comes with decision making and emotional attachment to taking on such a large home improvement project while balancing family, work and life, too.

Home Addition Costs vs. Added Value

While it is impossible to say exactly what the costs associated with your home addition will be because every addition is different, it is possible to get a rough estimate of the added value to your home will be by completing a home addition project. Thanks to the folks at Remodeling Magazine who have recently completed a Cost vs. Value report based on national, regional and state estimates for remodeling projects during the design phase, you can select the type of home addition you are considering and get an idea of the job cost, resale value, and the percentage of money you would recoup. Adding functionality to your home increases its value.
