This Is Why Homeowners Hesitate to Remodel & Why You Shouldn’t

So you’ve been living in the same house for a couple of decades, which is amazing in itself. It gives you that old-timey feeling of seeing the surroundings change right in front of your eyes and you also get to see the people around you grow up and get things done. But your bathrooms are also decades old, or maybe your kitchen cabinets have seen way too many coats of paint over the year. Or maybe you just haven’t gotten around to remodeling your basement and so you’ve turned it into a massive storage space.

Whether you like the answer or not, remodeling your home will give you an improved living experience in the same place. Obviously it depends on the scale of remodeling that you do. If you go for a full remodeling job where you demolish everything and build it back up from scratch, it will be like you’re moving into a new house.

The thing is, many homeowners decide not to do this because they think that it’s not worth. But deep down, there are other things that stop them from moving forward with it. These are the reasons why they don’t pull the trigger to remodel their house:

  • Cost
  • Fear, and
  • Stress

It’s true. Remodeling your house is not a cheap thing. In fact, you can easily spend thousands of dollars on this depending on what kind of remodeling project you go for. Again, if you go for a full remodel job like I mentioned above, you can easily look to spend around $20k-30k or maybe even more than that depending on the materials you’d like to use and the new things you’d like to add to your home.

So let’s dive into each of those reasons and see how we can get over them and see how much of an ROI and improvement in your daily life you’ll see once you get the remodeling done.

Cost

Like I mentioned above, home remodeling will cost you a pretty penny. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. If you think about it, all the money you’ll invest in remodeling will increase the overall real estate value of your home. If you plan on selling your house in the next 5 or 10 years, this is important because then you’d be in a perfect position.

Look, no one likes to buy a house with a decades old bathroom that doesn’t have any new features. These days people are all about smart home technology. They want the lights to turn on when they walk into a room without having to flip a switch.

Heck, even amazon has released a drone that will fly around your house and look to see if there are any intruders in there.

Sure, these features don’t require a full home remodel but you get the gist of where I’m going. People these days are expecting to have these features in the houses already.

Fear

Most people remodel their houses a couple times in their entire life. This means if they’ve had a bad experience, they will remember it for a long time and they might even urge others to not go through with it because it was such a headache for them.

Maybe you had to work with a remodeling team that wasn’t entirely professional. Or maybe you ended up choosing the wrong materials and ended up paying a lot more over the long term.

All these scenarios are valid and shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
