Ouch, neither sound like a good choice. If you have a driveway, you can remove the other dirveway to create a backyard. If you do not, keep the driveway and create a small garden patio or somthing. The function of a driveway is much better selling point with some decorated flower pots around the edges. Parking is one of the main things that can make a person really, really mad and they might not even consider your home without two places to park.

You never want to choose between a bedroom and a bathroom. But if you must, the first choice is three bedrooms and one bathroom. Next, would be two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms are best at or above ground level.

Talk to a Realtor or a Pro and have them walk through your home. You do not want to make the bedrooms too small or the bathroom too small or change the floor plan and nothing really works. Bathrooms next to the bedrooms and 1/2 bathroom on the main level is nice.

Hannah asked:
this? Damage size of half dollar on an outdated counter top and smaller tears on the linoleum floor. Am I responsible for the entire replacement instead of repair?

Neil and Kathy Haverly answered:

When determining value on multiunit properties the majority of investors will mainly focus on the net cash-flow. How much additional rental income do you think the added unit will bring in? Are the utilities currently separated? Feel free to contact me if you wish to speak further on this prior to investing in making capital investments into the property that you may not be able to recoup.

Thank you Mim and DD.

Is it worth it to add another unit? Remember, this is currently a triplex. If I add another then is will be Qualex b/c the basement is above ground level. I can seriously added another basement, living room, open kitchen, and 1 or 2 bedrooms.

This might be like a 30K project, is it even worth it if I am planning to sell within 5 years. How much value will it add?
