What considerations should a homeowner in Arlington weigh when deciding between remodeling their existing home or moving?
Here are a few metrics to evaluate and help you arrive at the optimal decision for your particular situation:
Are you happy with your current LOCATION?
- Good neighbors
- Proximity to work and schools
- Neighborhood and architectural character
- Mature trees
What CHANGES in your home are desired?
- More beds or baths
- More family living space
- Home office space
- Change in floor plan and flow
What are the relative COSTS associated with buying a bigger/newer home or remodeling your existing one?
- Selling and moving costs
- Price comparison of a remodeled or a different home with similar features
- Remodeling costs needed on the different home if you move
Some of our customers concluded that they saved as much as $300,000 remodeling instead of moving. So, if you love your existing home’s location and neighborhood, you may discover that remodeling is your best choice and direction both financially and location-wise.
As we say at Cook Bros., “Grow your home… instead of moving.”
