Have you been wondering if now is the right time to remodel your home? Whether you’ve been waiting a while to move forward or if you just bought a home to remodel, diving into a home remodeling project is no small decision.
Whether you’re considering a small redesign or a major remodel, it’s important to make sure that you are asking the right questions and thinking through all of the critical details that remodels entail. We have helped many clients embark on this process and transform their houses into their dream homes.
We recommend asking yourself these three questions before starting the remodeling process.
1. How will this benefit the value of my home?
It’s no secret that some projects have a higher return on investment than others. Check out the Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value report for your area as a general guideline for the project you’re considering.
2. What level of impact will this have on my daily life?
While we always strive to minimize the disruption a remodeling project-in-progress will have on your home, every project will impact your home on some level. Some projects, like a guest bathroom remodel, will likely have minimal impact, while other projects, like a kitchen remodel, will have a more noticeable impact. We have a lot of experience navigating with our clients what the temporary effect of a remodeling project would look like for them, and we’re excited to do the same with you.
3. What value will this add to my life?
In addition to an increase in home value, remodeling your home can have non-monetary value as well. Would opening up your floor plan allow you to host more family gatherings? Will updating your kitchen encourage you to cook from home more? Would remodeling your bathroom make it easier for you to age in place? Think about why you want to remodel and the positive impact it will have on your life. Our team is here to help you think through these questions and the potential value your remodel will have.
We’ve walked through this process with many West Michigan homeowners and would love to answer your questions and put your mind at ease by walking you through the steps involved.
