If you’ve been paying attention to the Triangle real estate market as of late, you’re likely astounded at how fast properties are flying off the market. Many listings are going under contract in a matter of hours, making it extremely difficult for individuals who are looking for a new home. At Prince & Sons, we’re dealing with this first hand as more and more homeowners are considering custom additions to their existing homes as opposed to purchasing a new one. One use that we’re seeing a lot of benefit for our clients is the addition of a first floor master bedroom.

4 Benefits of a First Floor Master Bedroom Addition

There are a host of benefits of adding a master bedroom addition to your first floor, a few of which we’ll dive into below:

  • Allows for multi-generational living arrangements – One benefit of a first floor master suite revolves around the ability to have your parents move in as they age. This way they can potentially help with childcare for any young children in the home, but also they can be close to family if their health begins to falter.
  • Baby boomers are getting older – Baby boomers are getting older and many of them are starting to retire. As they age, mobility issues are nearly inevitable and trying to navigate stairs to an upstairs master bedroom will become difficult. By adding a first floor master bedroom, baby boomers can continue to live in and enjoy the home that they’ve grown to love over the years.
  • A master bedroom addition may be cheaper – This may seem counterintuitive, but with the rising real estate prices, it may be cheaper to add on to your current home, rather than find a new home with all the features you want and/or need. You likely purchased your home when prices were much more reasonable. Sure, you could sell your home and make a large profit, but it’s likely most of that profit would have to go right back into purchasing an updated home.
  • Increase resale valueYou may not be thinking about selling your home at the moment, but first floor masters are extremely appealing for the very reasons listed above. This can help translate into a higher asking price should you ever decide to put your home on the market.
