What can you do if your existing home is feeling out dated or simply isn’t meeting your needs anymore? You might consider moving, but there are increasing rumors that the Fed is finally ready to push interest rates up. That may make it less attractive for some Floridians to buy a new home.
Even though we’ve seen some pretty robust building activity over the last few years (even The New York Times recently reported that “The Housing Market is Finally Starting to Look Healthy”), some Floridians are a bit hesitant to jump into the market. Part of the reason for that is that the price of land is pushing building costs for homes higher all the time.
Of course financing isn’t the only thing you’ll want to consider when you’re weighing your options between moving and remodeling. Here’s a post that talks a bit more about some of the other things you’ll want to think about before packing up and moving out. Remodeling a home you already enjoy can be a lot less stressful than making a move to a new community where you have to build relationships all over again and establish new routines.
There is another reason why remodeling in 2017 may make sense for you. There have been so many advances in building materials and remodeling practices over the past few years that you can update and upgrade your home in ways that you might not have considered before. Newer (and often more affordable) options allow you to experience the comfort and convenience of a brand new home—without actually having to start from scratch. Innovations run the gamut from more efficient fixtures for kitchens and baths to new man-made and sustainable products that are easier on the environment.
It just so happens that 2017 will mark the 25th year that Reed Design Build LLC began remodeling homes here in the Sunshine State. We’ve seen a few changes (and learned a few new tricks) in that time. The good news is that you can benefit from our experiences—not just remodeling homes in general, but remodeling to fit you’re your Florida lifestyle!
If you’ve been contemplating remodeling your Naples-area home, this just may be the year to do it.
