Asked by Bryan, Havertown, PA • Mon Nov 5, 2007
With another child planned, our choice is between renovating and moving. If we stay, we'd need to add a 4th BR in our finished basement by subdividing it. We'd have a BR (maybe 12 x 13), creating a family room adjacent to that. We'd also want to add CA and either finish off the front porch or tear down the front wall, thus creating a 'great room' out of the current LR and front porch.
The other option would be to simply move, purchasing a 4 BR place that would either have a family room (for homeschooling) or area to create one, and at least the duct work for CA (no ductwork in our current home). The issue is mainly that the down payment would be challenging given we just moved here a year and a half ago, and that most of the homes that fit the profile we're looking for are out of our price range.
A few questions, then - is creating a situation that's a bit unusual (i.e., chopping up basement) bad for resale? (BTW, no 4 BRs near our house). What would you do?
