Currently, the housing market offers buyers a narrow landscape of limited inventory and high prices. According to the National Association of Realtors, the lack of affordable options led to a 4.9% drop in home sales during December 2019. This is the most significant drop since the Great Recession. 

So, why fight reduced options and high prices? As experienced Custom Home Builders, we at Paradigm Homes can help you build the home of your dreams. Since we launched in 2007, our team has built unique homes and Pop Top Additions throughout Alexandria and Northern Virginia. We are proud to continue helping residents make their homes more comfortable and functional during this challenging time. 

Lack of Inventory in the Housing Market

We mentioned earlier that the housing market’s inventory is rather thin. In fact, RE/MAX’s National Housing Report posted a record low for “Months’ Supply of Inventory” in April/May of 2020. Although home sales increased by 37% in June 2020, coronavirus cases are rising again. So, you probably won’t see more affordable housing options anytime soon.

Benefits of Pop Top Additions

Need more space in your home? Building a Pop Top Addition can provide that while avoiding the hassle of the resale market. We chose to become experts in this particular style of renovation because we have seen the benefits for clients of adding a new floor to a pre-existing house.

Additions often require homeowners to sacrifice pieces of their valuable outdoors space, but a Pop Top allows you to preserve it. What’s even more interesting is that this renovation is cost-efficient than ground-level additions, as it avoids the financially draining services of laying foundations and framing a house. 

Finally, designing a Pop Top with us also gives you a chance to make further renovations. Want us to update other rooms and features while we’re adding space? We can incorporate those requests into the design.
