Remodel VS. Build a New Home — What’s the Right Choice for You?
“Should we consider remodeling? Or should we build a new home?”
These are questions we address often from our clients. Building your home from scratch or remodeling are both big decisions. When it comes to choosing between the two, it’s important to weigh several factors that affect you and your family before you go ahead with either option.
There are a few high-pressure factors that may influence your decision, like money, resources and time. A remodel affords you the ability to stay where you’ve put down roots and it lets you keep certain parts of your home that you’re happy with, but it’s messy. Extensive remodels may require you to leave your home for weeks or even months as parts of your home are reconstructed. Plus, you never know what you’ll find when those walls get knocked down!
The biggest risks when it comes to remodeling a home is inaccurate budgeting. Many homeowners go down the remodeling rabbit hole and find themselves with over $100,000 in extra costs the didn’t plan for. If you carefully plan each step, you’ll be able to predict how much you’ll likely be paying in extra fees and may choose to build a new home instead.
A new house built from scratch grants you the opportunity to create and live in your dream home while carrying a host of benefits. You can choose where you want your home to be located, especially if you’re looking for a proximity to good schools, entertainment and a short commute to work.
And aside from the location, you truly have the most creative freedom you can imagine. From interior, exterior and landscaping, your vision is the priority. You can even have the option to build an efficient home that will save you money in energy bills while reducing your carbon footprint on the planet.
