From interest rates to school districts, a lot of factors go into deciding whether to remodel or move.
When home sale prices are up, it’s tempting to put your house on the market and cash in – until you look at the other side of the equation. In many areas of the country, including Ohio and Kentucky, high housing prices have been supported by low inventory. Selling your house could bring a pretty penny – but will you be able to find a home to move into with so few available on the market? And even if your home sells for top dollar, are you ready to take on a new mortgage with a substantially higher interest rate?
Deciding to Remodel or Move
With those challenging factors in mind, homeowners often begin deciding to move or stay in their homes and update them with some home improvements. In the long run, remodeling your home builds value and energy efficiency, and is often an ideal alternative to moving when interest rates are high.
To help you sift through all the considerations you need to make, give our Should I Move quiz a try, and see if the results match up with what your gut is telling you. Whatever the results, Improveit team members are on-hand to answer your questions about remodeling your existing house, transferring your lifetime warranty to a new homeowner, or making updates to a new home when the time to move finally does arrive.
