Don’t worry! You’ll Do Great Making the Minor Home RepairsYou will
gain confidence to do bigger home improvement projects. A word of advice is needed here if your confidence and know
how grows to where you are planning on adding a room yourself. You will need to pull the proper building permits to
avoid possible problems in the future when you go to sell your home.
Important Home Buyer Purchasing TipsIf you are planning to buy
another home in the future; your agent, home inspector and especially you need to pay attention when the seller or
their agent is showcasing the bonus room as an extra bedroom or if they say a room addition has been added to the
house as part of their marketing efforts.
A bonus room can only be called a true bedroom if it has a window and closet. Certain types of
federally insured loans will require the appraiser to verify a room meets the definition of bedroom.
What if you advertise to sell the house later as a 4 bedroom house only to find out the
buyer's loan was halted due to the bedroom definition?
Verify the addition to the house was built to code requirements and all of the proper permits were
pulled. What if you try to sell the house later and the buyer asks for you to prove the room
addition was built to code and proper permits were pulled?
Either way, you lose by having to spend big bucks to prove the room was built
to code and you lose even more if the room was not built to code. It could cost you thousands of dollars to bring
the room up to code? Be very careful with homes that have rooms added on after
the house was built.
