Renovate or Move: Which Is Best For You?

Moving tops the list of the most stressful things to do, beating out getting a divorce, getting married, and starting a job in a new career field. However, remodeling your house isn’t exactly a cake-walk. Your home is turned into a construction zone, and you have to deal with all those contractors tromping through your home. Picking if you should renovate or move is a rock or hard place kind of choice.

Determining which of the two options would be less stressful for you will depend upon your individual circumstances. Some things to ask yourself when trying to decide between moving or remodeling would be:

How Much Do You Like Your Current Neighborhood?

There are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to move to a new neighborhood. Do you love your current location, or are you hoping for a change of scenery? Is your neighborhood convenient to local shopping and other amenities? These are just a few of the questions you’ll need to ask yourself before making a decision.

If you’re happy with your current situation, then it might be best to explore remodeling options instead of moving. This can be a great way to improve your home without having to go through the hassle of packing up and finding a new place to live.

However, if you’re unhappy with your current neighborhood, then moving might be the best choice for you and your family. It’s important to weigh all the pros and cons before making a decision, but ultimately only you can decide what’s best for you.

What Is Wrong With Your Current House?

One important question to ask yourself when considering whether to move or remodeling your home is what is wrong with your current house.

Does it look old and outdated and need a face-lift, or are there major structural problems that need addressing? Is it simply a matter of cosmetic updates?

Major problems in homes such as cracks in the foundation, rotting subfloors, or unsafe structural damage can be a huge undertaking in some circumstances. Depending on the severity of the issues – most homes can be repaired and remodeled.  Rule of thumb: If your home looks like it will be a total rebuild (most are not) – then moving would be the best option.

Cosmetic Updates

Cosmetic updates are what most homeowners are looking for.  Usually during periods of life transitions such as kids growing up and going to high school, at the beginning of the empty nesting stage, or retirement.  You finally have the house to yourself to do everything you have been putting off doing.
