Remodeling your home can increase the value of your home but only if you about it wisely and with proper planning. It’s important not to get ahead of yourself and stick to what’s the highest priority.
At Unique Home Building, we’ve walked many people through the process and have learned the do’s and don’ts. Start slowly. List the things you want to change and the updates you would like to make. Don’t worry about organization, just write it all down. Take a guess on how long you may want to live in the house. If you’re planning on selling, talk to your realtor and make a selling plan.
Once you have made a plan, do research or talk to a realtor to see what sort of return those improvements may bring. Some improvements will add considerably more value to your home than others. Now, it’s time for the fun part. You ready? Increase your home’s value with a proper home remodel plan – starting here!
Start with one room at a time. Make the commitment to tackle one room at a time. Whether it’s a simple coat of paint or knocking down a wall, by tackling one room at a time you keep projects achievable.
Make a list of all the things you dream about doing and break down your list into sections that help you get an idea of the time each task will take. This will help you not only get but see results in real time. Make sure you schedule your projects in the time frames you can actually complete them, that fits your level of comfort and budget frames. That’s a big one right there. It’s important to stay within your comfort zone or else it will be stress filled and frustrating.
Small improvements make a big difference. Are you torn between improving your home’s decor, versus making upgrades you know will increase your home’s resale value? Many homeowners are surprised to find out that even doing just a little bit will actually pay off greatly.
Get out some paper and make two lists. One list will be those that upgrade your home value and the other list will be for upgrades that are just for you. Some of these upgrades might include replacing old faucets, permanent lighting, new windows and doors. Upgrades for you are furniture, artwork, skylights and window treatments. With this plan, you will see real progress.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on a home remodel that isn’t meant for you. Now is the time to choose exactly what you want to do, and how you want it done. Once you make your list, you’ll know what the priorities are. That’s when you’ll call the contractors at Unique Home Building
