1. Increased Square Footage

As one of the primary factors that impacts home equity, square footage is increased significantly with a second story addition! This extra square footage makes your home more enticing to potential buyers, as it gives room to grow their family or have a home office without feeling cramped.

2. Additional Bathrooms or Bedrooms

Often, a second story addition will include extra bathrooms or bedrooms, both of which increase the value of your home. By adding bathrooms, buyers are more likely to be interested as they won’t have to share a bathroom with as many people. Bedrooms allow larger families to consider buying your home – overall increasing the value.

3. Improved Aesthetic Appeal

Many people prefer the look of a two-story home to a single-story home, so a second story addition can increase the aesthetic appeal. Plus, when a second story addition is done by professionals like Carbide Construction, you can be sure that it will look great and increase curb appeal with it’s thoughtful design.

4. Neighborhood Value Influence

Does your neighborhood have a lot of two-story homes? A single-story home in a neighborhood of two-story homes is more likely to have a lower value and be less interesting to potential buyers. However, a second story addition can help your home have a competitive edge and more closely match the values of the other homes in your neighborhood.

5. Enhanced Functionality

Does your single-story home have space for bedrooms, a home office and any other specialized room necessary? If not, a second story allows space for enhanced functionality with more specialized rooms (such as a laundry room, craft room, gym or more!).
