The PROs of Building a Room Addition in San Diego

Saves you a ton of money:  Adding a room to your house is significantly less expensive than buying a new house that includes that extra bedroom or extra bathroom that you need to accommodate a growing family.

Familiarity:  You get to stay in the home you already love.  There is no need to find new neighbors, new grocery stores, place of worship, or schools for your children.

Return on Investment:  Maybe you are not looking to move now, but you may want to move in the future.  If you are adding a second floor addition you may find when you age that you want to move into a single floor home.  Regardless of what you build, you will get your money’s worth in the future if you decide to sell because you have added square footage on to the property.
