Asked by Scott, Coatesville, PA • Sat Oct 1, 2011
I have 2 BR and 1 Bath Cape Cod on 1/2 acre of land, property is located in a mature development. I have neighbors to the side and woods in the rear. The home is constructed 3/4 granite stone and 1/4 German wood siding. My home was priced on the high end of other homes in the area. In order to increase my home value I was told by a real estate agent to build in the attic. The house is 100 years old.
The attic has four dormers with a window. There are two additional windows at each end of the attic for a total of (6) 28" x 46" single glass windows. The floor beams are 16" on center 2" x 6" and covered with 3/8" plywood. There is a narrow 28" stairwell leading to the attic.
I paid $95 K 15 years ago and made about 15K in upgrades. I was told that a 2 BR single bath in my neighborhood would range between 125K and 145K. I do not know what a 3 BR 2 bath would range.
Should I begin with building plans, general contractor, real estate agent or accountant?
