With how home improvement shows have taken television by storm…we are talking about the HGTV shows, not the Tim the Toolman Taylor Shows, it seems like everyone has gotten comfortable with making home improvements of their own.
We love seeing that kind of confidence! That is one of the best parts of owning your own home, you can make the decisions. You can go as big as you want with renovations and go as simple. No matter how you slice it, there are options. We want to make sure to help our clients with knowing what it will take to turn the home they are in or want to buy, into the dream house they desire. Sometimes from the surface, the work doesn’t seem so difficult, but when you start to go deeper into the layers, it can get costly. If you are buying a home with the understanding you will have to do some renovations, we recommend that you try to have your agent help negotiate those needs as a part of your transaction. You would be surprised at what some sellers will do to make sure their home is passed on to a solid new buyer. Remember, it never hurts to ask!
If you are planning to renovate your existing home too, it is good to think about how long you will be remaining in the home before making this investment. If you are doing the renovation and plan to sell soon, it would be recommended to look into recent buyer trends and outfit your home accordingly. Also, consulting your real estate agent and even an appraiser before making any home renovation would be wise if you hope to get more out of your investment. It is a numbers game and your real estate professional will be able to navigate this for prime decision making.
When you are ready, give us a call! We really would love to visit with you and help you make the best choices for you to achieve your dream house – 307-635-0303.
