Increased Quality of Life vs. Increased Value of Your Home – Which is More Important for a Remodel?

Remodeling InvestmentEven a moderate remodel will cost you a pretty penny, so it makes sense that you want to make sure at least some of that money comes back to you in the form of increased resale value of your home. Every standard remodel (we’re not talking about installing a half pipe in your living room) will increase the resale value of your home, but certain remodels add more value than others.

Should this be a part of your consideration as you move forward with the remodel planning process, or is it more important for you to invest in a remodel you really want and that will increase the quality of your life in the home?

The first thing to consider is how long you plan to be in the house. If this is your retirement dream home, then you should definitely prioritize quality of life over resale value. If you already have plans to move or upgrade within five years, then start weighing the resale value each type of remodel can bring.

Usually, when working with your design and remodeling company, you can find a happy medium – a remodel that gives you a lot of value and makes you fall in love with your home all over again.
