If you want your home to become the center for neighborhood activity, one of the best ways to do it is to create an indoor sports space for your children and their friends.
Condominium owners may enjoy the advantage of avoiding exterior home-maintenance projects or major landscaping, but when they want to renovate their home to modernize the layout or update the kitchen, they face some challenges that owners of single-family homes escape.
"But this is money well invested because this kind of space can be enjoyable for the owners and then really turn buyers' heads when the owners are ready to sell the property."
"You're usually adding either a detached structure or finishing a basement or a garage, but you also need things like special flooring, Plexiglas windows that won't break if they get hit by a ball, cushioned walls or floors, and sometimes an observation area," Mr. Kirstein said.
