Move or Remodel

By: Sarah Carlye

When the home you are living in no longer meets your needs you will have to decide if you want to move or if you want to remodel. In the past, often the biggest factor was if the house and the property could be expanded or affordably upgraded. With homes on the market for months at low prices and the market being flooded with foreclosures, a homeowner needs to also decide if they can sell their home at all. The possible selling price must be considered. If you haven’t been in you home long, selling now could mean a big loss.

More homeowners are choosing to remodel instead of moving. It is hoped they can ride out the market and if they still want to sell later, their home will be more valuable due to the improvements made. Remodeling inside existing walls will be easier than adding or expanding rooms. Before setting your heart on a remodeling project, have a professional come in and consult with him or her about the home improvements you are considering. Factors that should be included in the decision making process include the following:

• Time involved
• Deadline for the remodel to be finished
• Cost vs. value added to house
• Availability of affordable materials
• Sale price vs. purchased price
• Housing market in immediate area
