You have a propane tank for the pool heater already, yes, you can run a line to the stove and BBQ and water heater. You will need to get a propane company person to do it so it is done correctly. ... more

Lets see maybe contact the companies that list them, search Trulia for foreclosures or walk into local Real Estate offices.

But don't take my advice wait and I'm sure someone will point to a magical website that will have all the answers or you can search Trulia Voices as this question has been asked and answered over and over.

Hope this helps,

This depends entirely upon whether or not you are talking about doing it with a permit. If you add square footage to your home legally, you add value. Now, mind you, that adding sq. footage by losing a garage will not gain you as much dollar for dollar value, as it would had you built on an addition separately and also retained a garage.

If you're thinking about doing it without permits, you could be shooting yourself in the foot and limiting the number of buyers who could qualify for your home because FHA won't allow converted garages without permits.

Best of Luck!

Hi Bonchien

For insurance, agents in the area seem to be using about $80 to $100 for replacement after say a fire or other major damage. Actual construction costs in the area can�39;t be more than $30 to $50 as these are mostly pretty basic houses.

Hope that helps,

Hi Zack,

It could be 3k to 5k depending on the contractor and model type. I have come across this often and find the best way to get the best price is to get a few quotes. If you wish I can email you the information for the tech I use in my transactions. I have found him to be fair and reliable over the years. ... more
