As your family gets bigger or your needs change, you may feel the pull to change your current living space. When that happens, you have two choices: you can move or you can remodel your existing home. But how do you know which is the right option for your needs? When deciding to move or remodel, here are some points to consider before putting up a for-sale sign.
You Love Your Home
Look around your neighborhood. Do you really enjoy your neighbors and the area? Are the schools excellent? If you can’t image living anywhere else, then you probably should remodel your home. If you talk to a local remodeling company like Callen Construction, we may be able to find places to expand that you hadn’t thought of previously.
You Can’t Afford to Move
Housing prices keep rising, especially in some of the hottest neighborhoods. You might be able to sell your current home, but you might not be able to afford one that’s comparable or bigger. In this case, you may be able to increase your living space affordably by converting your attic or basement space or a similar update.
You Just Need More Space
Many homeowners decide to move simply because they don’t have enough square footage. Yet, by knocking down a wall or investing in a better layout, you can achieve this goal without having to pack up your belongings. On the flip side, if your current home can’t accommodate more living space, or you can’t recoup the costs with a higher sales price, then you might consider moving to another location.
