Making sure that the contractor you hire is on the same page as you is one of the most important steps in home renovation. You can have this by opening the lines of communication from the start. Know that sometimes things can take an unexpected turn but that you are interested in keeping up to date with the progress and would like updates even when something goes haywire
Mortgage refinancing is only an appropriate option when you are undergoing major renovations. This type of financing allows you to spread the repayment for the renovation over the lifetime of your mortgage while also allowing you to access the lowest interest rates. Still, once again there are initial costs that may include legal and appraisal fees.
Value engineering in respect to home renovation is the process by which you analyze to determine what renovations will bring in the most profit for your home. Determine the market value of your home as well as market value of renovated homes similar to your home in your area. This is done to find out whether there is any room to profit. If the price for your un-renovated home is close to the price of a renovated similar home nearby, renovation could be a waste of time and money. Remember, the key words are "similar homes" and "in your area". There is no point comparing your home that is built on a 20 x 100 parcel of land to a home built on a 5 acre land as you are not able to stretch the size of your land. Also the comparables that you choose must be near your home, preferably on the same street or just few homes down the road from your home. You can obtain market value of these renovated homes from your local real estate office or from a qualified appraiser.
