Will A Home Theatre Add Value to
Your Rockwall Home?
Many home owners dream of having a
home theatre – an entire room of the home dedicated to enjoying television and
film. These rooms are usually equipped
with a large flat screen television or projector, comfortable seats, mood
lighting and perhaps even a bar or a snack fridge. They are very comfortable
and the perfect place to relax after a hard day. They are also lots of fun for
entertaining, as you will be able to watch the big game or the hottest new
release with your friends in style.
However, will spending the money on
renovating your home to create a theatre room be a smart investment? Does this
type of home improvement add a lot of value to the property, or will it turn
off potential buyers?
Buyers Interested in
These days luxury home buyers are becoming
much more tech-savvy and they are demanding more networked or ‘smart’ homes
than ever before. They are looking for a house which is outfitted with the
latest in technology, so a modern home theatre will be a desirable selling
point. If you are targeting your home to this luxury market, the home theatre
could give you an edge over the competition.
It is difficult to determine the amount
that the home value is affected when you add a high tech home theatre, but most
realtors will agree that when there are many houses for sale at any given time,
the one with the impressive home theatre room will be more likely to sell
Don’t Take Over Valuable Home
The only situation in which the home
theatre could detract from the value of the home is if it overpowers a medium
sized or smaller home that just barely had enough space in the first place. If
your home cannot spare the extra room, taking up a lot of space with a home
theatre will mean fewer bedrooms or living spaces and a decrease in value.
However, you might be able to get around
this problem with clever solutions that allow you to conceal the home theatre
unless it is being used. You could hide
the large screen behind specially designed cabinets and set up the
furniture so that the room can be a living space when not in use as a theatre. Remember that a home theatre system is
something that will only increase the
value of your home for some buyers, as opposed to something like a bathroom
renovation or a garage which will be valuable to almost every buyer.

"We could not be more happy with our first time home buying experience. Jennifer went above and beyond from day one with us and put in the extra hours to ensure everything was perfect for when we became owners. Any question we had was answered immediately and we did not have to worry about feeling as if we were being bounced around to try and find answers as she handled it all for us. I would and will be suggesting her to anyone who is planning to look for a home in central Texas. Amazing experience with an amazing person and agent!"
