Remodel Now: Five Reasons To Renovate Today

Maybe you’ve been putting off that pergola for years, or need a new look in your 1970’s kitchen, but Home Remedy has the best reasons why you shouldn’t wait to remodel your home. Stop making excuses and have the home of your dreams now!

Reason #1: Buying a new home is stressful.

With mortgage rates up and down, it’s difficult to commit to finding a new home. Even then, you may not like the neighborhood, find out you have irresponsible neighbors, or STILL have areas in the new home that need some remodeling help. Why not make the house you’re in the house you love? If the lighting is wrong in the bathroom, the countertops in the kitchen are old-fashioned and chipped or you just can’t tolerate that nasty old carpet anymore, now is the perfect time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new!  Even in the worst cases, with a few weeks out of commission, your new bathroom will function better, your kitchen will be more inviting, and you haven’t spent hours driving around with a realtor or negotiating with the complications of a new mortgage.

Reason #2: It’s easy being green.

One the best reasons we can think of to renovate your home now is to make it more energy-efficient and eco-friendly.  There are so many wonderful materials you can use in your home to insulate it better. Window manufacturers are using coatings to prevent absorption of ultraviolet rays into your home, protecting the colors of your carpets and upholstery. Companies are coming out with products right and left that can manage your central air and heat to make it more efficient than ever. You can feel good when your home is made of more sustainable wood, glass, and countertops AND you can save money on your electricity bills!

If you love your neighborhood, you maybe just want some renovations with your curb appeal.

Reason #3: You love where you are.

Your neighborhood is friendly and connected. Your church is right down the street, and your kids love the school system. The community pool is great and it even has tennis courts and a playground. Why WOULD you leave?  Maybe it’s your unfinished basement that never got any love and is a hole for everything you’ll never use again.  Maybe your family is growing and you need more space.  Maybe you’re done once and for all with the complete lack of storage in the dark kitchen, or the tiny closets are the last straw. These are all terrific reasons to give Home Remedy a call and see how we can help you remodel now!  Whether it’s an addition for a new baby, the opening up of a kitchen into a family room, or the strategic re-evaluating of a space for more closet area, there is no renovation project that is worth missing out on incredible memories for your kids and the friendships you’ve made.

Reason #4: Get retirement ready.

The kids are gone and you can’t imagine leaving the home they were raised in and where they are now bringing THEIR children for Thanksgivings and Christmases.  The only downside is the fact that nothing has been updated in the last 35 years. Now is the PERFECT time to remodel! Brighten up those bathrooms, repaint the house with more modern colors, and add more storage for the grandkids’ toys. Make room for that larger fridge in your finished garage to hold that extra turkey (and leftovers). Turn an old bedroom into a sewing room, a playroom for the kids, a man cave or a movie theatre with fun seating and posters. Finally build that outdoor kitchen.  The possibilities are endless!

Reason #5: Prepare to sell.

If the first four reasons just aren’t good enough and you just need to get out, now is the perfect time to schedule some renovations to help you sell your home! If your house has some older fixtures, previously-popular color schemes or run-down elements, a lot of these can be replaced for minimal cost, but provide an impressive return on investment.  Just remember to stick with basic and simple fixtures and colors; not everyone is into the trendy options coming out.  Investing in new windows, a quality roof or special curb appeal touches such as a new garage door can add exponential value to your home without breaking the bank.

What’s your reason? Pick one and get moving! We would love to be able to help you perfect your already-wonderful home, or guarantee the highest selling price when you need to move with a few smart renovations with Home Remedy.  Remodel now!
