Protecting Your Home’s Value
How long have you lived in your current house? If it’s been a decade or two (or more) or if you’ve recently purchased an older home, it might be time for a home remodeling project.
As any of you with children can attest, the busier your household the more wear and tear accumulates over time. A scuffed wall here and a dinged corner there can soon add up. And, of course, styles popular in previous years become out-of-date as tastes evolve.
If these issues are left unaddressed, your house can decline in value both from a resale and livability perspective.
Home remodeling projects increase your home’s value. According to Remodeling.hw.net, most of the cost of popular home improvement projects, like basement finishing and kitchen and bathroom remodeling, will be recouped in the resale value of your home (from 52% to 97% depending on the project).
So if your home has become a bit more than gently used or is suffering from the poor design choices of a prior generation, consider a home remodeling project to protect it’s value and improve your quality of life.
