Why Remodel When you can Buy Brand New
It has been a long spring as many people have been stuck inside staring at the same flooring, cabinets, and countertops for long enough.
As summer brings warm weather and life slowly returns to normal, many people have begun to consider a change in scenery. Remodeling your current home could do wonders for your family’s outlook on life, whether that means fresh paint, new siding, some unique landscaping, or a complete makeover for your home.
However, there is a better way to shake the dust off and brighten the living space where you’ve been cooped up for months.
Instead of remodeling, why not relocate altogether? Remodeling will put a fresh face on the home you’ve lived in for years, but is it really the cheaper, faster, and better option?
There are pros and cons to every decision, and choosing to remodel your home is no different. Many people believe remodeling will be faster, save money, and increase the resale value in their home.
There are other benefits to remodeling, such as staying put so children remaining with the same friends and classmates, Staying with the same house can help maintain relationships with neighbors and business professionals in your neighborhood too.
However, remodeling may not always be the right choice. Unforeseen circumstances can often change your project’s course and drive up costs, and the end result may not increase your home’s value enough to justify the expense.
For busy families, remodeling can also affect their daily lives when kitchens, bathrooms, and other spaces are shutdown and unusable. And, it can be challenging to finance a remodel in some cases. Especially when the finished product does not increase the home’s value.
Instead of remodeling your old home, there is a better option. Purchase a brand new home and start fresh.
Buying a new home provides many benefits that remodeling cannot. For those looking to move closer to work or family, buying new provides the option to relocate to a neighborhood more suited to your needs and lifestyle.
Buying a new home also allows you to create the environment you really want. By choosing and customizing the layout you really want, you can add – or skip – components such as a mudroom, Michigan room, upstairs laundry, or 3-car garage.
Since you’re moving from a home you already live in, you’ll have less disruption to your daily lives. No need to close off rooms while work is being done, simply move to your new home once it’s complete.
