Remodel Success With 3 Tips

Not only do you have strangers coming into your home (are they even trustworthy?), but your life is turned inside out while you are revamping your dream home. When it comes to remodeling your home, one of the most important decisions is to hire a qualified contractor.

Here are 3 other important things to know as you move forward with your remodel:

Set a budget. Remodels can be expensive ~ especially if you haven’t set a realistic budget you can put yourself at high risk. Your loan officer or mortgage broker can help you decide how much you of a loan you can afford and what your best options are.

Your Wishlist. What is the objective of the remodel? What items/details do you want to add with the remodel? By knowing what are must haves and what you would like can help keep you to your budget, and perhaps, you can move something from your wishlist and add it into your remodel.

Talk and Walk. Keep the communication lines open between you and your contractor. So many things are going on during a remodel it is key to speak with your contractor often to know where they are at, what problems they’ve run into (if any), and to confirm you are still on schedule. Also, regularly check the floor plan and walk through the area to make sure nothing was missed or any mistakes were made.

Remodeling is a process, sometimes a long process and it is important to keep your sense of humor. In the end, you will have your home exactly how you want it and will have some great pictures to remember the time.
