Julie and Rob: Planning a Home Addition

Meet Julie & Rob – Teachers, parents, community activists

Property Goal – Add space for when the grandparents visit

Julie and Rob are both teachers with busy lives. They have 3 kids, Julie helps out at the church, and Rob’s in a band. They love their neighborhood and the character of their 1920s bungalow, but after living in their home for 16 years, Julie and Rob decided it was time to add more room for when their parents come to visit, and reached out to Realm for support.

“We love our home and have a laundry list of things we want to do, especially as our kids grow up. The first thing was adding more private space for grandparents,” they told Realm. “We talked to friends and real estate brokers for advice, but still didn’t know where to start.”

Realm’s analysis helped Julie and Rob make the right decisions: how much space to add, where to add it, and how to finance it.

First, Realm showed Julie and Rob opportunities based on their specific neighborhood—including how many square feet they could legally add, and how their home size stacked up to their neighborhood average.

Next, Realm laid out a simple approach for accessing the financing needed to complete the project. 

“We liked having options and super easy steps. Realm also made the financing process very easy,” Julie noted.

Julie and Rob’s addition will be complete this summer and they can’t wait to host their parents. Next, they will tackle an all-mirrored bathroom and a tired fence.
