Have you been in your current home for awhile and find it doesn’t fit your needs? Are you now questioning if it’s your “forever” home?  So, do you list it and move on or upgrade and stay?

As Approved Home Pros’ Resident Expert, I came up with some important questions to consider:

  1. Is your home in your heart? Do you like your neighbors, the location, schools and the home itself?
  2. If you remodel, do you have a realistic budget and are you willing to stay long enough to see the return on investment?
  3. By completing improvements or adding space cost effectively will you and your family be happy?
  4. Instead of improving, is it more cost effective to find a new home?

Before making this important decision, your emotional attachment, calculating if renovating will bring a good return on investment and the affordability of buying a replacement home must be considered. I recommend consulting with a local real estate and experienced home improvement professional. They will help educate you to make an informed decision.
