Move or Remodel? Which is Best for You?

  admin   Mar 12, 2015   Uncategorized

Changing homes entirely or changing your home to meet new needs. Big decision! Deciding which direction to go can make a major difference to you and your family in the short-term as will as in the long-term.

Most Americans choose to move when the space they are in has become somehow inadequate. But if you have the time and vision, remodeling your present home to better meet your needs can be a smarter “move.” This can be especially true when considering the timing for making that final retirement move.

Remodeling can be smart

For one thing, remodeling is almost always less expensive. Folks who move to get more room usually pay much more per square foot for that new living space (higher mortgage payments, insurance costs, utility bills, etc) — whereas, remodeling can be done in affordable phases, or financed with existing equity to reduce “payment pain” a bit.

Additionally, remodeling offers all the new space, appliances, and other updated amenities without the need to leave neighbors, school, church, favorite stores, etc. You only change what needs changing! Plus you can usually be confident that your remodeling efforts have given your existing home at least ten more years of live-ability. Then when you finally do sell, the money you invested in remodeling should add significantly to your final selling price.
