Your next home remodeling project might be an entire addition built onto your home, or it might be something simple like a new coat of paint on a few interior rooms. How do you choose your next remodeling project? Here are a few considerations to get you started.
What are You Looking to Spend?
There's no doubt that there are some serious home remodeling projects that come with such huge price tags that the only options for most people are a home equity loan or line of credit. For some families, the investment is worth the price because it will improve the home so dramatically. For other homeowners, a less expensive project might be more manageable.
You can determine whether the price tag of a particular project is worth it by asking yourself the following questions:
- Is the upgrade going to offer good ROI for your property?
- Will the payments on the loan be manageable?
- Is the work actually needed on the home?
Budgeting for your home remodeling project is an essential part of actually crossing the finish line of an idea. If you're not sure whether your home remodeling project is feasible on your current income, or whether it's warranted, you may want to have a chat with a bank or with your future home remodeling contractor.
What are Your Goals with Your Project?
Home remodeling projects are an ideal way to bring value to your home, make your home a more inviting place to live and increase the likelihood of a quick sale if you decide to put your home on the market. The end result that you'd like to see with your home remodeling project might influence the type of project or its scope.
For example, you may want to pursue a home remodeling project that has a high return-on-investment that will help you sell the home.
According to Cheat Sheet, projects with the highest ROI include garage doors, manufactured stone veneers, new front doors, and new wooden exterior decks.
"It's sad but true: not every home renovation offers a great return on investment. In fact, most upgrades that you make around the house wind up costing hundreds or even thousands more than they're worth. If you love the result, then those overpriced changes can be worth it. But if you have any intention of selling your house in the future, then you'll want to choose renovations that make sense, cost-wise."
If you're not planning on selling your home in the near future, you might not care too much about the ROI of your project. You might instead consider the personal benefit of updating a facet of your home that doesn't really have a high ROI.
Features that usually add more "usability" and enjoyment to your home but which don't provide a huge ROI tend to include master suite additions and luxury bathrooms. An addition to a home is an ideal way to increase the available space you have for your family, but they don't always represent a huge increase in the value of your home.
