Sunrooms are bonus spaces that can appeal to potential buyers and help raise the value of your flip. These glass-enclosed living areas, which are typically attached behind homes, can be used for relaxation and entertainment and can connect your homebuyer to the outdoors while protecting them from the elements.
Your buyer can have a front-row seat to all of the seasons from within the comfort of their home and enjoy the beaming sun of summer, the flutter of gold, red, and burgundy fall leaves, the beauty of freshly fallen snow, and the reemergence of flowers and greenery in the spring.
If you’re thinking about adding a sunroom to your flip, here are three things you should know.
Most homes are good candidates for a sunroom addition, especially if the back portions receive good natural light in the morning, or throughout the day. Sunrooms are usually three-season or four-season rooms. Typically, three-season sunroom additions aren’t insulated or connected to your flip’s HVAC. But in warmer climates, like those of Florida and the Carolinas, three-season sunrooms can often be used year-round.
If you plan to subcontract the construction of your sunroom, a three-season room can cost about $20,000, according to industry experts. This can involve using an existing roof or porch cover, and adding walls and windows on top of an existing patio or deck. A four-season sunroom requires a foundation, an HVAC system, flooring, and an investment of about $45,000.
The cost to add a sunroom to your flip can go up if the tie-in to the existing structure or the preparation of the site presents challenges, such as a sloped landscape. Also, if you need to have an existing deck or patio demolished, your costs can increase.
