The latest permit numbers reveal that many major cities are experiencing a surge in home remodeling projects. Is this the right time to renovate your house, or should you save the money for another purpose? Consider remodeling if you find yourself in one of these situations.
A. Unsightly Rooms: Interior design trends come and go; you shouldn’t necessarily embrace all of them. However, it makes sense to remodel a room if you genuinely dislike the way it looks or feels. The project could significantly improve your quality of life.
B. Replacing Equipment: Perhaps you already need to replace a major piece of equipment that has failed, such as a shower or built-in refrigerator. This provides an excellent opportunity for remodeling; you could save money and minimize disruptions by completing both tasks at the same time.
C. After Disaster: If a fire, earthquake, storm or water leak badly damages a room, think about remodeling in the process of performing repairs. You need to replace fixtures and surface materials anyway, so it’s a good idea to update and improve the interior design.
D. Planning to Sell: Have you been thinking about selling your house and moving somewhere else? If so, bathroom or kitchen renovation could expedite this process and yield a higher resale price. This is only a wise investment in a structurally sound home.
E. Planning to Rent: The same goes for a house or apartment that you want to start renting out. If future tenants see attractive, up-to-date rooms when they look at rental listings, they’ll be more likely to rent your home and pay more money. Plan ahead; many projects take one to three months to complete.
