Sell or Remodel?
According to Rocket Mortgage, “If you’re unsatisfied with your current home, you have two options: you can renovate it to meet your preferences or buy a new home that checks off all your boxes. The decision has two components: financial and emotional.” (Read “Should I Remodel or Move?” for tips to help you make the decision)
Pella offer, “When it comes to home remodel ideas, the opportunities are endless. You could start with a simple house project that focuses on surface-level, cosmetic changes. These projects are usually easier to complete, like painting, staining, or adding storage. Or, you could dive into a larger renovation project such as upgrading siding, roofing, countertops, tile, flooring, or carpet. Many homeowners like to take this opportunity to reap the benefits of replacement windows – improving energy efficiency, aesthetics, and home value all in one project. Let’s explore some clever ways to incorporate windows into your home remodel.”
Low-interest rates and a high inventory of unsold homes make it more attractive to stay put and make stand-out improvements to your home.
One way to make a statement is to consider the focal point of the house: the entry door. Architect Lynn Hopkins, writing in FineHomebuilding, points out that, “it’s important for the entry door to be appropriate to the house style.”
Her article provides drawings of doors that are appropriate to each of four broad styles: colonial, Victorian, bungalow, and modern. Read more in “Enhance Style with the Right Entry Door.”
