Should You Renovate or Sell Your Home?

    We are currently in the throes of this process. It’s extremely challenging weighing the options. For us, our kids rooms are too small and we would have to gut and re-renovate the basement which will be close to $60,000.
    The rest of the house needs a full update as well! We’re looking at a good $130-$140,000. But a house we would buy would likely cost us a lot more mortgage wise and then also need work. This way the house will be exactly how we want it???? I just don’t know. It’s so difficult to make that choice.

      It really is such a hard choice and the variables are so personal that no one else can really tell you what you should do! For us the location was a big deal and pushed us towards renovating. My hubby is also handy so we weren’t afraid of doing some of the work. But it was a looong and stressful process! I don’t envy you the decision process, we really agonized over it! As long as you run your numbers and are realistic about what the renovation process would entail I’m sure you’ll make the right call!

    great article, I have been discussing this with my wife and I it is harder because we still want to stay in this home for 4 years until the kids are out. Its a long time in some ways but i don’t want to put tens of thousands into a home just to sell it. so we are hopefully going to make some compromises. I think i will forward her this article so we can talk further.

    As a real estate marketer I get asked this question a lot whether to sell the house or renovate it and your article answers the question so so so well! Thank you so much for sharing. Reading your article was very helpful for me.

    Thanks for the blog! This is very helpful. I really want to add sliding glass doors to my house but I don’t know if I should wait until we get the next house to start renovating. hmmm…
