Home Remodeling Ideas - Thinking Long-Term for Value

Posted by Daniel Mizrahi on Saturday, June 28, 2014

It’s easy to get wrapped up in a project. Knock a wall down, expand that, customize this area, and the list goes on… There’s nothing wrong with that! Your home should fit you, work for you and your family, and represent your personal style and taste.

But let’s slow down for a minute and think long-term.

Remodeling is something that requires a fine balance. On the one hand, make your dreams for your home come true as much as you can. But on the other, it is important to think of what the next people to possibly own your home might think, and how your remodeling choices will impact the resale potential and value.

Tips for Making Good Remodeling Decisions

There are a lot of good things to consider before you customize your home, and the following are a few of them:

  • Are you removing something valuable? - Eliminating a closet, or maybe that extra bathroom you don’t use very often, in order to expand square footage might be an awesome idea for you. Removing spaces like these, however, are also removing valuable selling features.
  • Choose timeless styles - Especially in kitchens and bathrooms, ultra-trendy styles can be dangerous. Styles come and styles go… A professional remodeler can help you make these kinds of wise choices!
  • Fit with the neighborhood - Investing a lot in your home can be great, but standing out starkly from the surrounding homes is not always a plus. Try to blend with the demographic.
  • Hire a professional - Invest in a quality remodeling company whose work will keep your renovations an asset rather than a liability.

Are You Looking for a Quality Remodeling Company?

While a do-it-yourself project can be fun, the reality is that unless you have the skills and proper tools for the job, it can be all too easy to get in over your head. Do some research and find a reputable contractor near you; someone who will do the job well and can supply any needed advice and input!
