No matter what the current economic trends are, it’s always a good time to sell your home in Calgary. When the rooms are presented correctly and the price point is right, there will always be an interested party who wants to live in the sunniest city in Canada. When you’re thinking about selling up, you’ll want to push your home price as high as possible, which means taking on additional home improvement projects that add value.
Add A Sunroom For Best Return
Not all home improvement projects are created equal when it comes to getting a positive return on your investment. Larger projects, such as a full home extension, cost so much due to having to dig foundations and the high price of the building materials that you’ll never get the money back unless you get a completely outrageous offer. Smaller projects, such as a full paint job or screen room addition cost relatively little, but also add relatively little value to your home, making them not worth the effort. A custom-built sunroom is the ‘goldilocks’ of home improvement projects: cheap enough to afford with a high yield in your home price. A sunroom drives up the value of your home because of these reasons:
- Extra space – the obvious main benefit of a custom-built sunroom is that you add a significant amount of square footage to your property for a low cost. You can save even more money by building your sunroom on top of your existing deck or patio, and the bespoke nature of Desert Sun Patios sunrooms means that you can make the room fit your available space with ease.
- Help with heating costs – the key difference between a sunroom and a simple home extension is the number and size of the windows. A sunroom allows so much warmth and sunlight in during the day that you’ll never want to leave the room. This warmth can also be used to heat up the rest of your house if you leave the doors to the sunroom open, which in turn can reduce your heating bills all year long.
- Indoor/outdoor lifestyle – owning a custom-built sunroom is a lifestyle choice. The Calgary weather can make it hard to truly enjoy your outside spaces, from the wind and bugs in summer to the harsh winter storms. A sunroom gives you the perfect combination of feeling like you’re outside with the warmth from the sun and the views out over the garden, with all the protection of being safely inside.
As prospective buyers walk through your home, they’ll immediately be drawn to your sunroom. It’s such an engaging space with a wide variety of possible uses, from an extra living space to a home office or even a luxurious guest bedroom. All of these factors means that investing in a custom-built sunroom is a sure fire to add value to your home.
