Remodeling Your Home: Enjoy It Yourself!

Enjoy It Yourself!

 

How old is your home? 10 years? 15? Older? Are there things in your home that are outdated, or maybe there isn't enough living space? Do you have adequate outdoor space for entertaining in the summer? If you convert an extra bedroom in to a home office do you run out of guest space?

When someone thinks about selling their home, they start to think about the things that the buyer for their home might want...granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a finished basement, a trex deck. Maybe new exterior or interior paint.

Here's my question. Why not get those projects done BEFORE you make the decision to sell, so YOU can enjoy them? What have you been waiting for? 

I know couples that have been using the hall bathroom for several years because they had a water leak in the master shower. The leak was repaired but the tile work was not. It wasn't until they were ready to sell that they had the work completed. Great. The new homeowners will love it!

Bottom line?

Don't wait! Do it now and enjoy it yourself!
