Looking for a home remodel that will really increase how you enjoy your home?
According to most sunroom homeowners, a sunroom is an investment in your lifestyle as well as in your home.
Sunrooms are listed among the 35 most popular remodeling projects in Remodeling Magazine’s annual report that compares construction costs with resale values in 60 U.S. markets.
When you consider its value at resale, a sunroom project costs around 50 cents to the dollar. The other 50 cents spent on a project goes directly back into the home through increased value — not to mention increased owner enjoyment!
And with people spending more time at home to save gas, your sunroom can be a vacation in your own backyard!
A Sunroom Investment is Different from Other Investments
It is something you and your family ENJOY – to entertain, relax in, and just get away from it all… So think outside the "return on investment" box and you will understand why our Betterliving sunroom and patio room owners say "The only regret I have is…we wish we had done it sooner."
Cost of a Sunroom
When researching actual sunroom cost estimates, remember that averaging tends to have a leveling effect on "job cost" data. And, seemingly small differences in size, scope, or quality of finishes can dramatically affect the final project cost. Remember, too, that even in neighborhoods in the same city, local conditions can affect both the cost and value of a remodeling project.
Investing for Resale Value
In an actual real estate transaction, the "cost recouped" for a given remodeling project depends on a variety of factors. These include the condition of the rest of the home, the value of similar homes nearby, and the rate at which property values are changing in the surrounding area. A home’s urban, suburban, or rural setting also affects its value, as does the availability and cost of new and existing homes in the immediate vicinity. When more than one house is for sale in your neighborhood, a sunroom can make the difference in what sells first.
