Ask the Expert: When Should I Consider Remodeling My Home?

Q: When should I consider remodeling my home?
A: It's advisable to consider remodeling your home after 12-15 years of living in the residence. If you’re planning a full remodel with the intention to sell, it's advisable to do so by the 10th year, allowing potential buyers to live in it for a few years before they decide to remodel themselves. Alternatively, you can opt for gradual remodeling over the years, which keeps your home fresh and reduces the need for a large, one-time financial investment. An experienced interior designer can help you decide which spaces to prioritize to create a long-term plan for upgrading your home. Finally, for those whose house is almost paid off, remodeling can be more cost-effective than buying a new property—and an opportunity to create the home of your dreams.
