If you are reading this you have most likely purchased a new home that needs a fair amount of work to make it the home of your dreams – at least as close as money can buy. Or perhaps you have lived in your home for a while and have saved up the funds to make the upgrades you’ve been dreaming of.

Either way, undertaking a major home remodel is a drain on time, money, and patience. Many people start the process with no experience, and learn a lot of things the hard way. With this website we hope to help you avoid some of the common pitfalls, feel prepared, and increase the chances of a smooth and successful process.

 

As you try to decide what aspects of a home remodel to take on, there are a number of factors to consider:

  • Time – Are you paying a double mortgage or mortgage + rent during this process, and how long can you afford to do that?
  • Money – Have you established your budget for the work, plus a cushion for the unexpected?
  • Return on Investment (ROI) – What types of upgrades will pay off the most, in terms of resale value?
  • The Dream – Investment value aside, what do you really want in your home to make it the home of your dreams?
