    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!
