Home Office Additions in Bergen County, NJ
Many people are now working from home. This means a home office room addition can be a great investment. When planning a home office addition, it will be important to consider your specific professional needs when it comes to space, lighting and storage- but consideration for your technology needs- internet and cable connections, phone and fax machine, etc. must also be factored in.
“A benefit is that offices tend to increase the value of homes”, says Walter Molony, spokesman for the National Association of Realtors. Many buyers pay extra for homes with offices.
“We have a periodic study called ‘The Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences,'” Molony says. “When it comes to rooms buyers were willing to spend more for, one is a den/study/home office/library. Forty-four percent said they would be willing to pay more for a home with that room.”
A home office remodel will not only increase the value of your home, it will save you money in many areas- not having to commute to work each day or spend money eating out; not needing an expansive work wardrobe; reduced daycare expenses, to name a few.
Another benefit of working from a home office is that you can take a tax deduction. Generally, you qualify for a deduction if there is a clear separation between office and household.
Possibly the greatest benefit of adding an office to your New Jersey home is being there for the kids. Despite occasional disruptions, parents who work at home often end up spending more quality time with their children-which is priceless.
