From the late 1990’s to the mid-2000’s, American homes rose in value a staggering 50 percent on average. This was a period of time when homeowners were constantly ringing up St. Joseph home remodeling contractors to upgrade their homes. But only because it made perfect sense at the time. But then the housing market burst, or exploded as many might better describe and homeowners with upside loans wouldn’t even think about fixing a loose floorboard as it just didn’t make sense to sink money into a home.
But we have seen quite a recovery in the housing market and you need to think about ways you can add value to your home. Now is the time to seriously consider having your home remodeled, or, at least start with a kitchen remodel or a bathroom remodel. There are plenty of good reasons to give your home remodel contractors a call.
Even if you aren’t ready to put your home on the market, you can still benefit from a better curb appeal when you add some fresh paint and neat landscaping.
You need to remodel because as your children get bigger, they are going to need space to thrive. Perhaps you have younger children sharing a bedroom, which is fine at the moment, but in a very short few years, you will want them to have their own space, as much if not more than they will. The added space you get from a bedroom addition will help everybody in your household keep their sanity.
You might love your home, but hate a few aspects of it. For example, you might have limited closet space in the master bedroom. Now you can live with the cramped closet, but your wife has already made threats if the problem isn’t resolved. Do the right thing and have your St. Joseph handyman services add that much-needed space to your existing closets. It is a move you will not regret.
If you are nearing the empty nest stage of your life as your kids are in the process of moving out, seriously consider a home remodel. You can turn Junior’s old room into that office you have always wanted and your wife desires a sewing room as soon as little Suzie goes off to college. This type of remodeling comes with a special perk, your kids are less likely to move back home if their rooms have been transformed into something else.
If you have a basement that is basically unusable because it is not finished, now is a good time to have it done. That extra living space can be turned into a game room, family room or whatever you can dream up. Not only that, a finished basement will increase the value of your home and potential buyers will find it much more appealing.
Maybe your home just needs a little facelift. Your home has probably lost some if its charm over the years, so a little remodel would breathe new life into it.
