You were stuck at home for nearly a year, and now that things are starting to get back to normal– whatever that means– you’re ready to address the problems you discovered about your house. Maybe you need a dedicated home office. Maybe you need another bedroom. Perhaps the kitchen just doesn’t cut it anymore. Should you renovate or start from scratch?
Before putting that “For Sale By Owner” sign in your front yard, do your research. While this market is great for sellers, it’s a bit tricky for buyers– which is what you’ll be once you sell your house. Construction costs are high, but some of the supply chains are showing promise, with drops in prices and better availability of goods.
If you have a lot, now may be the perfect time to invest in building. If you only want to renovate, for now, make sure you’re making improvements that will pay for themselves when you are ready to sell.
Updating kitchens and master baths are the most pricey remodel projects, but they also can bring big returns when done right. Another good investment is adding that third or fourth bedroom that can be used as a home office. This will make your home appealing to a wider range of buyers.
When you’re ready for that next step, give me a call, and let’s talk about your options.
