In-Law Suites: Adapting to a Changing Market

More than ever these days we have requests from homeowners and prospective homeowners to convert single-family home basements to in-law suites. There are several factors for this increase, the primary one being the sky-high cost of a single family home in BC’s Lower Mainland. Another factor is the baby boomer generation is well into the retirement stage of life, and assisting children and grandchildren is becoming more common.

If you fall under the category of those looking to buy a home with an in-law suite or are wanting to put in an in-law suite, it is highly recommended to seek help from a certified professional.  Shell Busey’s Home Improvements team has extensive experience in this area of construction and can provide you with the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family.

There are several things to think about when it comes to buying a home with, or putting in an in-law suite.

Looking to Buy a Home With an In-law Suite?

There are many benefits to purchasing a home with an in-law suite already incorporated. Some of these benefits include:

  • You can keep your family close by to help care for grandkids or to watch over elderly parents
  • You can use the space as a home office
  • You can rent out the space to help pay the mortgage or make additional income

Want to add an In-Law Suite?

Converting an existing single family home to include an in-law suite can be done under different circumstances and cost ranges depending on the space and desired functionality. Some options might include converted garages, basements, sheds, and attics that contain living, bathing, and kitchen. This allows parents to live in a separate but close to home space. There is often a separate entrance with a locked door. It is an ideal situation for those looking for privacy but also enjoy the comfort of being close by if needed. Call Shell Busey’s Home Improvements to see how we can help bring you a new addition to your home with an in-law suite.
