Should I Remodel My Home

When does it make sense to remodel my home? The fact that you ask yourself indicates the possibility of a ‘need’. Something or lack of something inspired you to wonder. “Wouldn’t more counter space make my life so much easier?”

“Is a real laundry room too much to ask for?” “A stove top that can accommodate pots on all burners at the same time! “

Despite that it would be wonderful to instantly have snazzy new accommodations and appointments, we still must ask, “when exactly does it make sense to remodel?” Take a moment before you begin dreaming of your new Viking range and Japanese soaking tub, you might ask yourself a few questions:

  • How long do I plan to live in this house?
  • Does it make more sense to sell this house?
  • Are property values going up or down in my neighborhood?
  • What are property conditions doing in my neighborhood?
  • If I only live here for a few more years, can I get a return on my investment when I sell?
  • Since I have a limited budget, what is the smartest remodel for this house?
  • What if the contractor says I should put my remodel budget into failing infrastructure and insulation before the glamorous part of the remodel?

If you’re reading this you’re still with me, that’s great! This is a good breaking point, check back tomorrow for part 2. I’ll talk about the top three things to do when gearing up to pursue your remodel and hire a contractor. I’ll touch on the best rooms to remodel for your ROI, and how does green remodeling save you money now and make you money later.
