If you plan to stay in your home for 10 years or more, resale value is less of a factor than if you plan to sell in the next few years. Whether you are planning to put your house on the market soon or not, resale is always a consideration when planning your remodel. Remodeling can increase both the perceived and real value of your home, and even increase the square footage depending on your plans. If you are remodeling with the intention to increase the value of your home for sale, you want to focus on a design that will appeal to potential buyers. Your Excel designer can direct you to an overall look that shows well and will make your home easier to sell. If you don’t plan to move any time soon and we are remodeling your “forever home,” we will focus on making your home just right for you, but we always consider the effect our remodeling will have on resale value. Working with Excel, we’ll create a new space that you will enjoy living and entertaining in now while still maintaining the increased value of your property resulting from the remodel if and when you do decide to sell.
