Is Adding a Wall Bed or Murphy Bed to your Home an INVESTMENT or a COST?

 

When you invest in a Wallbed or Murphy Bed, your return on a $3,000.00 investment can be almost 5 times your original money!

Your stationary, standard Queen bed, takes at least 35 sq. feet of space and is costing you anywhere from $200.00 per square foot up to a median Seattle price of $428.00 per square foot (June 2013).  This calculates as a value ranging from $7,000.00 to $15,000.00! Wow! And that doesn’t include the cost of heating and cooling a single purpose room all year!

Furthermore, with a wallbed, you don’t need to add a room!  Do a quick calculation of what a 10×10 addition will cost in this market.  Yup: between $25,000.00 and $50,000.

A Queen-size wall bed/Murphy bed is roughly 67″ x 88″ when open but when it is closed, it takes a measly 8.5 square feet of floor space!  Trulia will show you! Seattle home values, listing prices, average and median sale prices, and Average price per square foot for Seattle WA was $428, an increase of 43.1%. (Seattle P.I. article) In the Greater Puget Sound area, the price per square foot ranges from $250 on up to the $700 –$ 800 dollar range (June 2013).  In other words, the space your conventional bed requires equals $28,000, more or less!

Please, do your own search in your local market.  This is the reality in the greater Seattle area!

Now, go into your guest bedroom and look at that bed taking up expensive real estate! Call Salvation Army, donate the bed, and get a tax write-off!  Invest $3,000.00 (more or less) and gain space worth up to 5 times that! It’s the thing $avvy $hoppers do now.

Are you a condo dweller?  You don’t have the choice to add on!  You love where you live and you don’t want to move.  A small investment in a wallbed gains you both additional space and adds value per square foot. Check it out for yourself!

How else can you pick up 35 square feet of livable space for $3,000.00?
