5 Reasons Home Remodeling Is Better Than Moving

T&G Builders home remodeling

Do you need a change? Discover why home remodeling is often better than moving to a new house.

Remodeling your home can feel overwhelming. Because of this, many families may choose to move to a new home rather than remodel their existing property. However, remodeling your home, especially with the right design team, can be much more satisfying and cost-effective than selling your home and buying a new property. If your only reason for moving is to find a home with new features or extra space, you can achieve those same goals through home remodeling. If you aren’t yet aware of the benefits of remodeling your home, consider the following. Then, call the designers at T&G Builders to discuss our remodeling services. 

Moving Is Costly and Time-Consuming 

The moving process is frequently expensive and all-consuming. If you are moving kids, this is especially true. Boxing up all of your items, finding a reputable moving company, and unpacking items in your new home alone are exhausting. However, finding and purchasing a new home is equally challenging. You might need to take time off work, find babysitters, or drive all over to find the property you want. 

Home Remodeling Gives You Complete Control 

Choosing to remodel your home instead gives you the control to design the space exactly to your liking. Instead of trying to find the “needle in the haystack” that is the new home with exactly what you want (at a price you like), you can work with a designer to remodel your home. You can work with experienced contractors to create additions or new rooms with the layout and design you specifically want. 

Home Remodeling Increases Your Home’s Value 

As home prices rise, remodeling your existing home will put you on the positive side of an increasing housing market. If you find that it’s the right time to sell your home in the future, a remodel can boost your return. There are a few remodeling choices that frequently increase your home’s value, including: 

  • A full “pull and replace” kitchen remodel
  • Finishing a basement
  • Creating a dedicated home office space 
  • Adding or repairing an aging deck 

Avoid Real Estate Commissions and Fees

When selling a home and moving, there are several commissions and fees you must pay. For example, your real estate agent receives a commission of 5-6% of your home’s sale price. Then, there are closing costs that the buyer and seller must pay. When dealing with large sale prices, these fees can amount to several thousand dollars you are responsible for on top of all other expenses associated with moving. 

You Get to Stay In Your Family Home 

Moving to a new home can be tough on all family members. You leave your neighbors, and your kids may have to change schools. If you have an attachment to your home, you don’t have to leave it to enjoy a new home design. This is where home remodeling can help. With an expert remodeling team, you can create the home additions or designs you want without moving from the home you love so much.
