Will a Screen Porch Add Value to My Home?
You likely already know all of the ways that a screen porch will improve your outdoor living experience, but will it add value to your home? The answer is an unequivocal ‘yes,’ but you may be surprised about just how many ways that it will add value. Here are some factors to consider:
Return on Investment
Adding a screen porch is considered to be one of the best improvements you can make to your home. In fact, the average return on investment for a screen porch is around 70-75%. This is an excellent number, especially when considering that you get to enjoy your porch every day until you sell the home!
By adding a screen porch to your home, you will be able to experience the sights and sounds of nature while being shielded from harsh elements and insects. Now consider all of the ways that you will be able to enjoy this uniquely indoor/outdoor space. Whether it is hosting parties, reading, or just drinking a cup of coffee, the options are vast. Prospective homebuyers will recognize this and look forward to the opportunities this screened room will provide.
Will homebuyers expect you to have a screen porch based on the other homes in your neighborhood? Depending upon your neighborhood’s comps (comparable standards), you can receive maximum resale value if you have a screened porch that is built to the same or higher standard of other screen porches in your community.
Additional Square Footage
While screened porches are typically not included in the appraised square footage of your home, they do add livable space, which is appealing to homebuyers and therefore increases your home value.
