A question that we get from Bloomington-Normal, Peoria and Champaign-Urbana home owners a lot is “Should I remodel my existing home, or have a new home built?”
In the end, only you can answer that question, but here are some things to consider:
1. Do you like living in the Bloomington-Normal, Peoria and Champaign-Urbana area?
2. Is your current home in good shape structurally?
3. Are you looking for comfort and convenience or is resale value important?
4. Are you there ‘long term’?
5. Will improving your home over-value it for the area?
6. What does your ‘gut’ tell you?
The first question carries a lot of weight: Do you like living where you are now? Are you comfortable with your current neighbors? Is the neighborhood stable, or is it in decline? Are you conveniently located to the places you regularly visit – schools, shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, etc.?
The bottom line is that if you like where you are and enjoy your neighbors, then remodeling your current home might be the way to go.
Remodeling your home can give your the best of both worlds – the comfort, convenience and reliability of ‘new’ without the expense and ‘adventure’ of starting over.
