The LA Housing Scene: What You Need to Know

In recent years, the Los Angeles housing scene has been somewhat dormant. Fewer people are putting their houses up for sale, which has in turn raised the prices of any houses that are in fact put on the market. If a house is actually worth 1 million dollars, it’ll end up selling for an additional $200,000.

Unfortunately, this puts LA homeowners looking to upgrade to a bigger, better home in a bind. On the one hand, their house is
selling for a little bit more. On the other hand, the houses that they were hoping to purchase are now selling for a lot more, and are way outside of their budget.

Luckily, there’s an alternative solution for the growing wave of people that are looking to upgrade their housing situation in
LA: room additions. Room additions enable you to grow your space, your comfort, and ultimately your house’s value, all without the hassle and heartbreak of moving

Different homes will obviously have different room addition needs. For some people, an adjacent guest room is what they really
need to make staying in their home a welcome choice. For others, a recreation room for their now teenagers is what matters. For a third couple, adding a whole new floor is what’s going to make their house the home they always dreamed of having.

Whatever room you need (or want!), adding another room to your home empowers you to be involved in the process from start to finish. Unlike a home you purchase, when you build an additional room you can have full control over the materials used
and the room’s interiors. In many ways, a room addition can revitalize your entire home. By increasing your living space by adding a room of your design, the house you were thinking of selling becomes the place you never want to leave.
