To move or to stay and add on can be a hard decision to make. If you like your neighborhood, schools and your yard, why move. Cost can be a factor but consider the cost of moving:
-Real estate commission 6% of sale price
-Moving and storage fees
-The need to find a buyer for your existing house. Once found, you sometimes have to move quickly to find a house you want in a limited time frame and sometimes have to compromise.
-Bank and closing fees.
-Chances are the house you move into will need some work to be done to it.
By adding on a room you can substantially add to the quality of life for yourself and family without the upheaval of moving.

A growing trend is to add a private in-law suite for aging parents. Adding an in-law apartment is one of the best proactive decisions a home owner can make. It is a far better alternative to assisted living. For many seniors, the property maintenance of their existing home is becoming more of a burden. Assisted living can cost from $30,000 – $60,000/year, an investment that has no future return.
An in-law apartment is a one time investment and will appreciate in value over time. Its greatest value is helping families cope with many financial, emotional, physical, and social challenges. It produces a win-win solution for the whole family.
