Here’s a situation a lot of Mission Viejo homeowners find themselves in: they love their neighborhood and many things about their current home. There’s just one problem—they don’t have enough space. Families grow and needs change. Maybe they are now working from home and need a dedicated home office, or perhaps their growing kids want a space of their own to hang out with their friends. A home addition can be a great solution to these types of problems.
Why a Home Addition Is a Great Option for Mission Viejo Homeowners
Selling your home and moving to a larger home is always an option, of course, but in today’s real estate market, it often makes more sense to just stay where you are and add on to your current home. Moving involves putting your home on the market, paying a real estate agent a hefty commission, packing up all of your belongings, and then transporting and setting them up in a new home. Unless the newly purchased home is perfect, there will be some renovation costs involved there as well. At the very least, you will probably want to repaint the walls and put in some new flooring.
Moving is more costly than most people realize, which is why we say it often makes more sense to just stay in your current home and do a home addition. Yes, a home addition can also be costly and will cause some amount of disruption to your home life, but the benefits are well worth it!
With a home addition, you can design the additional square footage to perfectly meet your needs. Maybe you’ve always wanted a spacious, luxurious master suite. You can get one that was designed just for you, with the bathroom and walk-in closet of your dreams! If a new living and entertaining space is on your wish list, you can have one built that checks all of your boxes and has all of the features you want. In other words, you don’t have to settle for a space that is not quite right. You can get a custom space, designed and built specifically for you and your family.
Why Hire an Experienced General Contractor for a Mission Viejo Home Addition
You don’t want to hire just any general contractor for a home addition. There are so many details that go into home additions that it’s important to hire a general contractor who is familiar with the process. Adding on a room or two may seem fairly straightforward, but there are a lot of detailed considerations to make. How will the addition tie into the rest of the house? What structural elements are necessary? What code requirements need to be met?
