Things to Consider When Renovating

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Hints and Advice

The number one benefit of remodeling is to add more value to your home. Do some research on what improvements will help increase the value of the home. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have!

Upgrading to energy efficient doors and windows is always a good decision for adding value. Doing so will also help save on energy cost in the long run, which will benefit your family and add value to your home.

Fencing in the backyard is always a plus for any buyer. This keeps kids and pets safe, when playing in the yard. A fence also adds privacy, which is appreciated by all.

Renovating the kitchen and master bath will certainly add value to your home. Just make sure the selections you choose are not too wild or crazy. Upgrading the floors will always benefit any home owner.

Decide on an amount for your budget. Add in an extra 5-10% for unforeseen costs. Once you start opening walls up, there may be a problem that needs to be addressed. Never for a second think that unforeseen cost will not arise when doing a renovation.

In order to stay on budget, make a list of what needs to be done and what you want to get done. This will help you prioritize what work should come first. It is okay to do projects in increments. Tackle what needs to be done first and if funds are available then start on desired projects.

Document your possessions. Take photos of possessions and make notes about their value. Just in case a pipe should bust or something gets broken during the remodel, you can have insurance cover these items. It is better to be safe than sorry.

When doing a renovation stay positive and remind yourself that your lifestyle will be enhanced once the renovation is complete. Make smart choices and most likely recover the money spent, if you do decide to sell.
