Every New Year arrives with a host of questions. To a large degree, those questions tend to focus on whether this will be a better year than the one before. According to NPR, most Americans are feeling pretty good about 2019. They cite a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll that showed 60 percent of Americans are optimistic about the world in 2019, compared with just 37 percent whose outlook is less rosy. (That leaves 3 percent of the country as merely ambivalent if you're counting.) If you’re a homeowner in the Naples area, you may have another question: “Should I remodel my Naples home in 2019?”

Here are some ways to turn your wanting into doing.

All of those are good reasons to remodel—but are you prepared for that kind of undertaking? Here are 4 signs that you’re ready to remodel.

Here’s a look at some Naples winter getaways that you can take advantage of during “high season” in the region.

Let’s look at those 2 things to consider when you’re remodeling for your health.
“To pool or not to pool—that is the question.” It may not be one of Shakespeare’s greatest lines, but it’s a good question for homeowners in the Naples area. After all, pools and Florida homes just seem to go together. And while there is no state law requiring Floridians to install pools in their homes, a lot of residents do. In fact, it’s been reported that 40 percent of all single-family homes sold in Sarasota County in 2015 had private swimming pools.
