    Renovations | July 19, 2022

    If you are looking to increase the value, liveability, or comfort of your home, you have likely considered a variety of renovation projects. While there are many options for renovations, few can match the value and functionality provided by transforming an underutilized or unfinished basement into a suite for tenants or family members. As a leading provider of complete large-scale home renovations, the team at Northwest Construction knows that some projects can provide more appeal and value than others. That is why we have compiled a list of 3 reasons to add a basement suite to your home to demonstrate why this project is often worth completing.

    3 Benefits of a High-Quality Basement Suite

    Transforming your basement into a high-quality suite can provide the following benefits to make them well worth the investment:

    1. Additional Income Through Renting

    Constructing a basement suite allows you to generate additional income through monthly rent payments, helping you recover the cost of the renovation over time and increase your income. Many basements already have plumbing and sewage lines built in, allowing for easier installation of kitchenettes and bathrooms while reducing the total cost of the renovation.

    2. More Space for Your Family

    Basement suites allow you to give aging parents a safe place to live while keeping them close. A separate entrance can also ensure that they do not feel as though they are losing their independence, creating a solution that everyone is happy with. In addition to a space for aging parents or family members with disabilities, a basement suite can add some much-needed living space to your home by allowing you to create a multi-media room, family room, or home office without taking away from the existing space on the other level(s) of your home. This is especially beneficial for growing families as a basement suite gives you additional space without needing to sell your home and move to a new one.

    3. Increased Resale Value

    A complete basement suite is one of the most desirable features for potential buyers due to the benefits they provide. The prospect of rental income can lead to an increased number of high-quality offers when selling your home. In addition to making your home more appealing to buyers, the profit gained when selling your home will typically offset the cost of building the basement suite, making it a project that is worth the time and money.
