Should I remodel my home before selling it?
People often take on a large home remodeling project just to sell the property to someone else. Here’s why that’s a bad idea.
Too many unknown factors
A home remodeling project, when done correctly, is a large investment of time and money. But remodeling for someone else’s needs and likes – for an unknown stranger who may someday buy your home – is a huge gamble.
You don’t know what the future homeowner’s style or personal taste may be. You could make the wrong choices in materials and finishings, scaring off possible buyers or lowering the perceived value of the home if people must remodel it again after they buy it.
Why try to remodel for someone you’ve never meet? You’ll never figure out what they want. It’s a total guess.
Beware DIY home design
If you’re watching home-remodeling television programs, trying to get ideas for the remodeling job, realize that those shows took many months to create, and the trends they promote are already going out of date.
These programs also underestimate the time and money needed to produce high-quality work, causing most do-it-yourself home remodelers to go over budget – and many end up hiring a professional to finish the job.
Hire a qualified designer like Keystone Creative from the begining, and you’ll get a better home and get your money back for your investment.
