1. Add more bedrooms for guests and family
2. Create a play area
3. Build a secondary suite
When you are looking to purchase a new home with a purpose-built secondary suite, ask your builder about which communities allow them and which home models can accommodate one. You should also contact your municipality regarding permits for secondary suites.
Add value to your home
A finished basement typically adds anywhere from 50% – 70% of the original investment. This means a $50,000 investment would add $25,000 - $35,000 to the value of your home.
So, don’t let your basement go unused. Make it work for you and your family.
