Is this the year you’ve promised yourself you’re going to organize your basement once and for all? It’s a noble goal, but difficult for one reason: if you have an unfinished basement, organizing it will always seem like an unfinished project. One way to begin bringing order to your basement–and to begin the process of finishing your basement–is to contact Norm Hughes Homes in Buckhead Georgia. They can build interior walls along your basement’s exterior walls. (Note: If your basement is prone to flooding or excessive moisture on the exterior walls, we can deal with that problem first.) We have vast experience in enclosing basements in Buckhead Georgia.
Investing from the Bottom Up: Finishing Your Home’s Basement
As real estate prices continue to decline in many areas of the country, homeowners are searching for ways to strategically update their homes to increase the value. Norm Hughes Homes says finishing a basement can be the answer–take advantage of existing space in your home to add square footage and storage space.
In over 200 metropolitan areas in the country, home prices fell again this past year. They are declining at a slower pace, but many homeowners are still struggling with home prices and the future of their investment. Single family homes are still the most sought after residential properties in most suburban areas of the country. Homes with basements can be rarer, and can offer added square footage, storage space, and value to any home.
Many homeowners have basements in their homes, but they’re unfinished, which represents overlooked value. More homeowners in Alpharetta, Dunwoody, and Buckhead are looking at Norm Hughes Homes finishing their basements as a way to combat declining home prices.
Sitting on New Value for Your Home
Over 1 million homeowners remodel their basements each year–a finishing project that can be substantial, but generally causes less family stress than remodeling a kitchen or a bathroom. In some areas, basements only count toward square footage (and therefore the value of a home) if they’re finished. Homeowners are especially motivated to finish their basements as they realize they’re sitting on potential value.
