You’ve lived in your home for years. You have witnessed your child’s first steps in the living room, baked cookies with your children in the kitchen, and played countless games of catch in the backyard during family time. These memories, along with countless others, are what ties you and your family to your home. Moving and leaving this special place behind, is a decision no person takes lightly. However, your family is growing, and this once comfortable space is seemingly more and more confining.
Many families struggle with the need for more living space and the decision of whether or not to move or remodel to obtain it. A number of factors weigh heavily on your decision. Do you remove your kids from a school they’ve grown to love, and move to a new neighborhood in a different district for the additional space? Do you sell now, fearing the real estate market will slump even more? Do you stay put and do nothing, hoping your family will simply adjust to the cramped quarters? Do you sell and move at a time when your home’s value is drastically lower than it was when you originally purchased it? These are just some of the issues you face.
According to an article in the Northwest Herald titled, “With Buying Out For Many, Home Reinvestment Efforts Could Trend Up, “it seems most homeowners are deciding to stay put and remodel to get the space they need.” Even if you have hopes of selling your home at some point in the future, remodeling now gives you two huge advantages. For one, you are increasing the value of your home so that when the real estate market becomes healthier, you can demand a higher sticker price for your house. Second and most importantly, you are giving your family an immediate solution that will meet the need for more space and address functionality issues you’ve identified over the years.
