Asked by Memphising, Washington, VA • Fri Jun 7, 2013
I have a 4 level split in a very desirable neighborhood in Vienna, backing up to Meadowlark gardens, 5 minutes to Wolftrap and the toll road, and 10 minutes to Tysons, 10 minutes to Reston. Similar houses in area have gone close to $900K just recently.
I have a full basement. Part of it is nicely finished with a half bath. The other part is concrete and dry wall that I am thinking of finishing to add a bedroom and a full bath and make it into an Au Pair suite or an in law apt with its own exit. It would cost be $50K to do that based on quotes I've gotten. The question is: Is this a worth while endeavor for a house of this size in this location? Is this cost appropriate for the resale value? It is underground so will this even count in added sq footage? It would add 700 SF. My house is already at 2300 sf not counting the basement.
I hope to stay in it for a while and possibly rent the house in the future and rent the apt. separately. I'd appreciate any advice you have
