The benefits of building bigger to start

We bet you are excited to start designing and building your dream home! You deserve to enjoy the ride! But, try to stay calm and collected. After all, you need to make some big decisions from now onward.

First, you must decide whether you want to own a small or a large home. Then, you can start your design and build journey and focus on the more creative details.

To help you make a decision, we collected all the benefits of building bigger to start. Discover more below.

Planning to expand the family

The first and most obvious reason for choosing a bigger home is that it is more suitable for those who want to expand the family. If you plan to have children, you can add extra bedrooms right from the start. We also recommend a bigger house for homeowners who have a lively social circle and love organize gatherings. In this case, you can expand your interior by adding special rooms for entertainment, like game rooms.

More family-friendly

Sometimes homeowners want to take care of an older family member. And larger homes are an great solution for you to spend more time with your loved ones and offer them help as they grow older. The best part is that you can keep an eye on them while maintaining enough privacy for yourself at the same time. A popular solution for this is including a smaller guesthouse or a in-law suite right next to your main house.

Higher home value

The real estate market keeps changing, but one rule always remains intact – the bigger the house, the higher its value. Whether your house is next to the beach or in the woods, in the future, homebuyers will be willing to spend much more for your property. If you are the type of homeowner who looks at their house as an investment, building bigger to start is a smart choice.  

Possibility for extra income

Yes, larger homes cost more to design and build. However, they also bring you more opportunities for extra income. Instead of using the in-law suite for guests and family members, you can decide to rent out the space in the future. If you decide to take this route, don’t forget to check local regulations for landlords and buildings.

A work-friendly home

As the world starts to accept remote work, the number of home offices is rapidly increasing. So, even though now you might work in an office outside your home, you never know what the future may bring. A large home will provide you enough space to have a separate cozy living area and a separate home office.

Plus, the options are limitless. You can use that extra space in your home to open a yoga or artist studio, an arts and crafts workshop, a training center, a psychologist home office… anything you can think of, depending on your qualifications and interests. To sum up, a bigger home will help you become more flexible in terms of hobbies and work from home.
