Should I Put an Addition on my House in 2024?

Additions, additions, additions. What to do? Should you have one added to your home? Short answer, yes. Long answer – still probably yes.

Let’s peel back the layers so you can better decide if doing an addition in 2024 is a good idea for you and your family.

I’m assuming that because you’re here, and you’ve looked for this answer – you understand what an addition is. I’ll save you the pain of the specifics and dive right into the benefits.

They are indeed plentiful and I hope it brings you some peace of mind when trying to make an informed decision. Here are my top 3 benefits of adding an addition to a home in 2024.

  1. A custom space. By adding a custom space to your home, you’re giving yourself exactly what you want, so you can live a better life. Maybe you want a music room, and office, a yoga studio or a 2nd living room. Well instead of giving up the spare bedroom, you can have it with an addition!
  1. Increased Property Value. Adding an addition increases the square footage and thus the livable space on the property. This means more equity baby! Even if you’re not planning on selling, this then becomes equity you can borrow against the value of the home.
  1. Room For More Family Members. A lot of first time homebuyers go for something that suited them at the time of purchase, but now they have a growing family. One kid comes a long, then two, maybe three. Aside from moving into a new a bigger home, what to do? What to do? Just add an addition. It will make life a lot easier, and a lot less emotional when you’re thinking you have to leave your beloved home to accommodate a growing family.


Whether you want to build up or build out, adding an addition to your home is a great decision when it comes to improving the quality of life for you and your family.
