It’s actually fairly interesting how uncommon it is for people to do extensive home remodeling. For many people, the idea of spending a lot of money making changes to their home is unappealing. However, these same people may decide to move to a bigger and more expensive home. For a lot of people, it’s actually a cheaper and more functional choice to remodel. Let’s take a look at how an extensive home remodel may actually be the best choice for you.
Did you know that moving homes is one of the top ten most stressful events a human can go through? There’s something about moving – the packing, planning, switching services, cost, and so much more – that can bring people to their breaking point. The funny thing is, a lot of people move for reasons that can be completely matched with an extensive home remodel.
If you like the neighborhood you’re in and your complaints are mainly with the house, a remodel is likely a much better option for you. If for no other reason, it keeps you from having to move.
Improve Quality of Life
One of the top reasons why people move houses is because their current house isn’t offering them what they need. It might not have enough bedrooms, the layout may be a pain, or it’s simply outdated. No matter why you dislike your house, an extensive home remodel can fix it.
Rooms can be added. A second floor can be added. Walls can be moved to make a room bigger or smaller. You can also update flooring and make adjustments to the floor plan. Remodeling can cover a lot more changes than many people realize. Remodels aren’t just for changing out kitchen cabinets and putting in new carpet. You can do almost anything.
That includes being able to add space. The main floor of your home can be expanded outward or even upward. Therefore, if you want the kitchen, living room, and bathroom on your main floor to be bigger, add a second floor for the bedrooms and use the space from the old ones to expand on the rooms you want bigger. Whether you’re feeling cramped or want to add to the family, there’s a solution in remodeling.
Add to Value
One of the biggest reasons why people are afraid of remodels is the price tag. The fact of the matter is, if you were planning to move somewhere bigger or better, you would have had to spend more than the value of your current house anyway. It may seem less important because the price difference will be on a mortgage. However, you can take out a loan for remodels as well.
When it comes down to it, there’s actually a huge chance that the money you put into remodeling will add more value to your home than what you spent on the remodel. This is why house flipping is such a high-profit business. If you know what you’re doing, like we do at Heidan Construction, a 50 grand remodel can add 100 grand in value to the property.
