Is a Bigger House Really Better?

When It Comes to Home, Bigger Isn’t Always Better

If you are looking for your next home, it’s natural to assume that you should buy the biggest house you can afford. Indeed, if you need a large home, then this is the right decision. However, if added space is not needed, there are other ways to maximize your investment that do not include more square feet.

Bigger isn’t always better.  If you don’t need 4 bedrooms, then why spend your money on the extra room? There are many other ways to invest those dollars into your new home including the following:

  • Upgrades – New construction homes come a list of standard features. We are proud to say our list is one of the largest for new homes on the MS Gulf Coast. However, there are other upgrades that you may want to add to your dream home, such as a fireplace, coffered ceiling, shiplap, etc.
  • View – Homes with a view will always command higher sales prices than those without. If you enjoy a home overlooking the water, perhaps the money saved on unneeded square footage will get a view you love.
  • Space – Space is not only counted in square footage; lot size also adds value and enjoyment to a home.
  • Amenities – What does the community offer? Streetlights, curbs, sidewalks, underground utilities and more add to the value of the property.
  • Location – The old adage of location, location, location is true. Choosing a home in the right area is critical to adding value.

Choosing the right home is not merely about resale value, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider the future value. First and foremost, choose a home that fits your needs and lifestyle. When weighing the pros and cons, the bigger house is not necessarily the best choice.
