When life changes, you need to adapt. Knowing the perfect moments for change can be challenging. You might have been putting off remodeling, but here are events that call for a revision to your home.
When your Child is Going Off to College
If your master bedroom shares a wall with a soon to be empty room, perhaps you want to knock it down and expand your space. Give yourself that bigger bathroom you have always imagined or that massive walk in closet.
When you Plan on Selling your Home
A perfect time to remodel is when you are planning to sell your home. While changing things up right before you leave might seem counterintuitive, the benefits will be obvious once you get prospective buyers. Sure, a remodel will cost you, but a successful remodel adds value to your home. If you redo a bathroom or kitchen before placing your home on the market, you can expect potential buyers to be willing to pay more, since they will not be inheriting any fix-it projects.
When High Costs are Breaking your Bank
Are you spending too much on AC, heating, and energy bills? It is probably because your home built in the sixties is not as well insulated as newer homes are. The more conducive your home is to saving energy, the cheaper it will be to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
When your Income or Savings has Increased
Homes require maintenance. Each year homeowners should apply the 1% Rule: this rule of thumb tells you to spend 1% of your purchased cost back into your home every year. Small things like painting the interior and exterior are often forgotten because it is not as immediately important as fixing something that is broken. When you save a little extra cash, you are afforded the luxury to make some home improvements.
If you find yourself at any of these points in life, you might consider a remodel of some kind.
