Hi, Looking for opinions about whether the resale value of a house would go up
after adding a bathroom. I know, sounds obvious, but read on.
I live in a 4 bedroom, ONE bath older house. The bathroom is 6'3" X 12'6". The
house is laid out, I could cut the existing bathroom in half, making two rooms
that would be
SMALL 6'3" X 6'1" after allowing for the wall in between them.
I could SQUEEZE a full bath in each half with one accessed like it is now, from
hallway. I could cut a hole into the master bedroom from the second half so I
up with a master bath. But they would be SMALL.
The only other options I have would be to take away part of the walk-in closet
master BR, or take the small adjoining enclosed porch, currently used as an
convert it into a bathroom.
Both of those options would give me a master bath without touching the existing
but then I would lose either the office or a most of the closet. If I took the
office, which is
really a sunroom, I would have to do some major reworking of the exterior of the
i.e. taking out a bunch of windows and an exterior door, and resheathing and
match the rest of the house.
My wife and I are capable of doing all the work ourselves either way, but we are
what would be the better way to go from a resale standpoint. Thanks, John
