Do you remodel or move?

We're constantly asked to come over and help homeowners decide ... should we stay and remodel our current home into our dream home, or should we move?

This is not an easy decision for some people!

Usually, the first consideration in any real estate decision is LOCATION. If you have a house in a prime location, it may be hard to duplicate that location.

Another factor is the people involved. When you remodel, it can put a tremendous stress on the people involved, be it a married couple or other people working together on the project. Many relationships do not survive the process.

Of course, the cost can be the deciding factor. And, we caution people that our experience shows us that the cost is always greater than anticipated, and the time involved is always longer than planned for.

Now, a new survey of 5,000 homeowners suggests that homeowners are more likely to stay and remodel, than move.
