Deciding to Renovate Your Home or Sell As-Is

When making the choice to do a full renovation due to property damage from a natural disaster, or deciding that your home needs a fresh new face in general, you may find that the cons outweigh the pros. The hidden costs of renovation can become an unnecessary burden on you and your family.

If you have ever renovated a significant portion of your current living space, you may have become all too familiar with the phrase, “It’s going to get worse before it gets better.” When a large construction project is in progress, things tend to get very messy before they become the shiny, updated version of your ideal property. 

Unfortunately, there are many variables in renovation that can go wrong and require remedies that you or your contractor did not foresee in hindsight. This preexisting pressure can only be magnified while navigating living in a construction zone along with your children, pets and belongings.

While doing major renovations, you may become subject to financial and personal obstacles you never saw coming.

Experiencing Temporary, but Uncomfortable Living Situations

Undergoing a major renovation project means living in a hotel or rental property or still residing in your home that has turned into a 24-hour construction zone. 

Fixing Water Damage

When homeowners are unfortunately faced with damage from a flood, the process of repairing their homes after an emotionally taxing event can be even more stressful. 

Updating Appliances

Much of home selling advice mentions updating to the best and newest appliances, which seem to only grow more expensive as technology progresses. Before you spend too much on a brand new smart fridge, make sure to be aware of these concerns.

Preparing Your Home to be Sold on the Market

Lists of home selling advice can seem to go on and on when your home already feels like a burden on your life. These can include everything from buying all new light bulbs to hiring a professional photographer.

Coordinating Child and Pet Care

When you are a parent to both humans and pets, it can be especially difficult to have your house shown on a realtor’s schedule while trying to sell. If your home remains on the market for too long, it might not be feasible for your budget or your sanity to have to coordinate this for extended periods of time.
