It’s my castle and I’ll renovate it how I want to!Posted: January 05, 2011 at 3:55 PM by Brian Beezley
You approach with a sense of excitement. The perfectly manicured lawn and the beautifully groomed brushes frame the perfect home for you and your family. Already, without setting foot in the door, you’re ready to buy, so you step into your new castle and can only wonder: What were they thinking?
Everyone does it. Design, decorate and renovate your house to fit your style and needs: Doors in odd places, bathroom fixtures in colors reminiscent of a Pepto-Bismol commercial, or a kitchen that has never seen this side of the 70’s.
Which is great for the people living there, but what happens when you go to sell? Before you spend the time, money and heartache, consider the change you are about to make. You might want that quick entry into the bathroom from the kitchen, but will the next people who move in? Will the next owner of the home want the toilet/shower combination in their guest bathroom? Most important of all, will you or the next owner be able to easily change the remodel you’re looking to do. A bold paint choice is great for you and with a couple coats of primer and paint you can have a much more neutral look for your next buyer, but tearing out your walls to make your 3 bedroom house into a two master house may not be so easy to change, and worse, will probably devalue your home.
Many home renovations are started with the thought towards not just making your home better suited to you and your family, but also increase its value. Before you start that major renovation, call the one person who can give you expert advice – your real estate agent. The Signature Service Real Estate team is well trained in this area and always ready to give you a free evaluation on your renovations and help you know you’re making the right choice before you make that first cut or purchase towards your renovation.
On the biggest investment you are going to make, you want to know that the changes are only going to make it better. Free home evaluations go a long way towards making an equitable decision you can bank on.
