|1. Will a renovation truly fix what you don’t like about your property?
If you’re tired of a small kitchen, for example, given the layout of your house, it might not be possible to make it any bigger. On the other hand, if you’re craving a spacious rec room with a cozy fireplace, then a renovation could make that happen.
Of course, there are some things you may want that aren’t specific to your house, such as an easier commute or nearby park. Those are features you may only be able to get by moving.
2. How much will a renovation cost? How does that compare to the cost of moving to a new home?
Renovations often have a habit of costing more than you originally anticipate. Remember, the final result should be a home you want to stay in for quite some time.
3. Beware of compromising versus settling.
For example, consider the impact of adding an extension to your house. It would be a major renovation. Is it the ideal way to get the extra room you want? Do the benefits of renovating outweigh the benefits of finding a new larger home that already includes the space you need?
It can be a tough decision. If you’re in the midst of making it, call today to get the facts you need to make the best choice.
