The latest trend taking the real estate market is the she-shed: the female answer to man-caves.
It’s exactly what it sounds like: instead of using a tool shed for tools, more women are turning the space into a hobby hub. The small rooms have been converted to everything from an arts-and-crafts cabin to a reading nook, and just about anything else your clients can dream up.
What’s more, these she-sheds tend to come at no extra cost.
“When I’m appraising a property, I don’t give any (extra value) if the property has a shed or not,” says Peyman Etemadi, an appraiser with Assurance Appraisals in Toronto. “I’ll note in my report that there is a utility shed, but don’t adjust the comparables.”
