More times than not, clients in the McKinney area will ask us if building a new screened porch will increase the value of their home. And the good news is that the answer is a resounding yes! Not only will a screened-in porch expand your outdoor living opportunities, but it will also make your home more desirable if you choose to sell it down the line.
Does a screened porch increase your home’s square footage?
By adding a screened porch to your home, you are increasing your livable space. While the porch area is not usually calculated into the square footage of your home, it does increase home value for its outdoor living appeal.
What is the return on investment for building a screened porch?
On average nationwide, you can expect an 84% return on investment (ROI) for building a screened porch, but that number can vary depending on where you live. If your home is located in a geographic location with a colder climate, your ROI will likely be less than if you live in a warmer climate.
Do your neighbors have screened-in porches? It matters.
Is it the standard for the homes in your neighborhood to have a screened-in porch? If so, you need to level the playing field for when it comes time to sell. By adding a screened porch, you are comparable to the other homes on the block, making your home more appealing in the real estate market.
Will you put yourself ahead of the game by building a screened porch that exceeds the neighborhood standard? While a screened porch built for luxurious outdoor living may make all the difference to a particular prospective buyer, it’s not likely to give you a bigger ROI. To reap the greatest return, we recommend designing and building a porch to your preferences for comfort and design, as well as how you envision using the space.
