You are looking at buying a Scottsdale home, but you are wondering whether or not it is worth it to pay a little extra for a home with one more bedroom. It’s a tough decision to make, especially when balancing other factors such as location, price and the other features of the home. However, having one more bedroom than you think you need could end up being a good thing for a number of reasons.
Perhaps you only planned on having two children, but a third one might come along as an unplanned surprise… will you have enough room for everyone? One of your children’s friends might have a bad home situation and need a place to crash for a while. One of your elderly parents might need to live with you for a while. There are many situations when the family living under your roof might expand, (even if it’s just having guests over the weekend or holidays) so make sure that you have the space to accommodate. I posted an earlier blog on buying a home for guests that might be of interest. Search www.arizonasrealty.com for my other blogs.
A Home Office
If you are working from home or have your own business, a private space in the home to work can be worth its weight in gold. It’s really difficult to be productive when you are trying to work at the kitchen table with the rest of the family buzzing around you, so turn your extra bedroom into a home office.
Buying a slightly larger house with one more bedroom means that the home will be easier to sell in the future. This is especially true if all of the other homes in the area have similar amounts of bedrooms. Buyers these days want more rooms and an added bedroom gives them options that could be the deciding factor between yours and the home down the street.
