If you are considering renovating your Boston home, think carefully before you make your final decision. We want to see you make, not lose, money on your next home renovation adventure. Here are a few things to consider before taking the plunge:
1. Do your renovation plans fit with the charm and feel of the home? – An uber-mod kitchen may be exactly what you want, but buyers may think it looks out of place next to the 18th-century moldings. Stay true to the home’s architecture and period style for best results.
2. Do you need to replace carpet? – Don’t. Go with hardwood floors. A little extra now will go a long way on the resale.
3. How long will you stay in the home? – The more personalized the renovation, the less likely you will see a return on your investment. Don’t go overboard with a luxurious wine cellar and basement bowling lanes unless the renovations are simply for your own enjoyment.
If you have any questions about the return value of your next renovation project, or if you would like a free comparative market analysis, call Elad Bushari today. 617-529-7079
