Things to Consider Before Starting your Missing Middle Project

Deciding to tear down your house and build a Missing Middle project is a big decision, so it's important to consider several factors:

1.     Zoning and Regulations: Check local zoning laws and regulations to ensure that your property is eligible for the type of development you have in mind. Some areas may have restrictions on the type or size of buildings.

2.     Costs: Evaluate the costs associated with demolition, construction, and obtaining necessary permits. Make sure to have a realistic budget that includes all potential expenses.

3.     Market Demand: Research the local real estate market to understand the demand for missing middle housing in your area. Consider the potential resale value of the new plex and whether it aligns with market trends.

4.     Neighborhood Compatibility: Assess how well a missing middle plex would fit into the existing neighborhood. Consider the architectural style, size, and overall character of nearby homes.

5.     Community Impact: Gauge the potential impact of the new development on your community. Consider factors such as increased traffic, changes to the neighborhood's aesthetic, and the opinions of neighbors.

6.     Return on Investment (ROI): Evaluate the potential return on investment for the project. Will the increased value of the property and potential rental income justify the initial investment and effort?

7.     Environmental Impact: Consider the environmental impact of demolishing your existing home. Is there a sustainable way to deconstruct rather than demolish, and can the new construction incorporate eco-friendly features?

8.     Financing Options: Explore financing options for the project. This could include loans, grants, or partnerships. Ensure that you have a clear understanding of your financial commitments.

9.     Architectural and Design Considerations: Work with an architect to design a missing middle plex that meets your needs and fits the character of the neighborhood. Consider factors such as the number of units, layout, and overall design.

10.  Timeline: Consider the time it will take to complete the project. Construction projects often take longer than initially anticipated, so be prepared for potential delays.

By carefully considering these factors, you can make an informed decision about whether tearing down your house and building a missing middle plex is the right choice for you.
