Asked by Robert, Seattle, WA • Sun Aug 16, 2009
I am currently remodeling a house on top of Queen Anne. Currently it has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the 1000SF main floor ( living, kitchen, dining) and a full daylight basement (1000SF). The basement, when (remodeling is complete) will have a media room, office, and laundry room. The basement will also have a 1 bedroom 1 bath ADU with separate access, but also access through the media room of the main house.
My question is, is it worth the $ to change one of the 3 bedrooms on the main floor to a walk-in closet and bath to create a master suite?
What will be more valuable to a buyer?
3 bed 1 bath
2 bed 2 bath (master suite)
bearing in mind the downstairs will also have 1 bed 1 bath in the ADU which could also be used as part of the main house.
The house is just 2 blocks off Queen Anne Ave. It has no views, 2 off-street parking spaces, but no garage. We are thinking we will be in the $700k range when we plan to put it on the market next summer.
