To Relocate or to RemodelMay 29, 2019 1:24 pm
The housing market in the Indianapolis area is super hot right now. Houses are selling quickly and you might find yourself wanting to get in on the action. However, before you call your real estate agent, look around and consider if your itch for change can be quenched by adding on or remodeling your current home, or if relocating really is the right decision for your family. Our team at NBA Builders has put together a list of things to consider, to help you make the right choice.
A good neighborhood can be a hard thing to find. Many people have several boxes to check on their neighborhood wish list, so if your current neighborhood is meeting your needs, you might not want to leave it. If you love your neighbors, your school district, and the community park, you may want to stay put. However, if you’re looking to get away from annoying neighbors or move to a better school district, now is a great time to upgrade your location.
Is Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, or Evansville where you’ve put down roots? Or is this area just a stopping point until you move on to the next location? Some homeowners dream of moving out of state or closer to family, or maybe you’re close to retirement and have plans to head southward. Considering how long you want to stay in your current city may help you decide whether a move is worth it.
How do you feel about your current home’s style? Does the design fit your style, or have you always dreamed of living in a colonial or craftsman? If you don’t love your home, you have to ask yourself whether you can do enough home renovations to get it there.
Finally, the biggest question is: How do you feel about moving? Some people love the opportunity to go through all their belongings and de-clutter before packing up. Others see the process as a hassle, and therefore hate to move. As you consider moving versus remodeling, you have to ask yourself: Is it worth it?
How you answer these questions may give you clarity on whether you want to find a new house or start your home-remodeling journey. If you decide to add on or remodel, our contractors at NBA Builders have helped a number of homeowners make their existing homes work for them. From garage and bedroom additions to kitchen remodeling, we can help you find a workable solution for your space.
