Remodeling is also something that some homeowners do in order to both make their home more functional or beautiful. Often THEY ALSO remodel with an eye towards getting a better price when they put the home on the market in the future. That can be a great way to increase the value of your home and thus increase your net profit at sale time.
Remodeling can also cause your house to be “over improved”. If you are hoping to regain or even increase your equity in a future home sale because of a remodleing project, feel free to call the Veenstra Team BEFORE you begin the project. We will be happy to give you advice regarding the current market conditions and the possiblity of recooping equity. Sometimes there is a fine line between “over improving” and making the right improvements. In some cases homeowners know they are “over-improving” their home from a “house market” perspective, but are improving it just the right amount for their living satisfaction! That is a very legitimate stance. If you are going to be trying to recover your investment in a future sale in the not too distant future then the Veenstra Team is happy to provide some of the knowledge you need to make the best decisions for you and your family! You can fill out the quick form at the bottom of the page if you would like the Veenstra Team to give you a free “pre-remodeling” consultation.
