Before the Sale
We often receive calls from perspective clients wanting some improvements done before they put their house on the market. While we enjoy helping our clients with whatever their needs are, we often hear from clients they wish they had done this sooner so they could have enjoyed everything they have had done. Make a list of some of the things you would want done if you were going to consider putting your house on the market and start enjoying those upgrades now.
Ignoring the Problem
Sometimes a renovation can come about by fixing a problem you currently have in your home. Trying to ignore a problem with your house is like trying to ignore a problem with your health, never a good idea. When a problem arises in your home, it’s best to address before it gets worse which could always lead to severe damage and unforeseen expenses. By not letting a problem go, you will save yourself money and stress.
