2 or 3 Bedrooms

A great way to add extra value to a home in St George real estate market is to convert it from a 2 bedroom into a 3 bedroom. This is easy and possible if the house has an extra space like a living room that can be walled off. In order for a room to be considered a bedroom, it has to have a closet and and two forms of egress. That is a fancy way to say two ways to get out of the room. This usually comes in the form of  a window and a door. Some homes have two doors, which may also be considered separate forms of egress. Given the shortage of 4 bedroom homes under $200,000 in the St George Real Estate market, it is a good idea and a good investment to find a 4 bedroom house.

Murphy Bed

One home owner converted a formal living room space by installing a beautiful Murphy Bed with extra storage. The wall bed unit was concealed behind book shelves. The shelves fold back and make way for the bed to drop down. This way the room can be used as a bedroom, but still used as an office or living room. It makes a pretty handy place for guests to stay when they come to visit. The increase in value from a 2 bedroom house to a 3 bedroom house will differ from area to area. One thing is certain a 3 bedroom home will sell much easier than a 2 bedroom. This is especially true for areas that have a lot of young families looking for homes. The Real Estate market in St George are is continually evolving, a Murphy bed is a great way to capitalize on the evolution, and get the most return for your investment.

Washington Fields Home Layout

Some of the homes in the Washington Fields area which is part of the Real Estate market in St George have a somewhat less than ideal layout. These homes have very large master bedrooms. The problem is, many of these homes have very small kitchen areas. It would make more sense to decrease the wasted space in the master and expand the kitchen by a 3 or 4 feet. This can be a great answer if the windows aren’t situated in the wrong place. It is relatively easy to move an interior wall, as long as it is not a load bearing wall. The job becomes difficult and expensive when a window has to be moved. If the window is moved, there will be external repairs, stucco, electric, etc. that will need to considered. When considering purchasing a home in the Real Estate market in St George you should consider the layout of the home from a re-sale standpoint.
