Good Monday Morning!

With many homeowners still in a position of having either no equity or little equity in their home a frequent question is whether to remodel or to sell and purchase another home.  When trying to come up with the best answer for this it really takes some research on the part of the homeowner.  Remodels can be very expensive and many times the homeowner will not see a return on their remodel investment.  The best way to approach this question is to first get a solid idea of what your home is worth on the market today.  Then you should come up with a solid idea as to what a new home might cost you right now.  Once you have done this then get bids for the cost of doing improvements to your existing home.  You will also want to get an idea of what your existing homes value will be following the remodel.  Now that you have this information you can come up with an idea as to which avenue is going to be the best financial decision.  Sometimes the remodel makes great sense, but I also see many people get buried with an expensive remodel that they will never recapture their money on.

If you live in the Eugene and Springfield market area you can obtain a market value analysis on your home online at  You can also contact me directly for a no obligation market value analysis. I can also give you an idea on what your home value should be following your remodel.

Have An Awesome Week!
