New Purchases - If you are buying a new home that has already been built or is a resale, and know that you want to make improvements it will probably make sense to include anticipated renovation costs in your mortgage. A mortgage broker can help you shop around for the most favorable rate. If you are having your home built a mortgage broker can work with you to find a construction loan that fits your anticipated building schedule. You don't want to be borrowing and paying interest on the entire project up front. A construction loan that allows you to draw down the cash that is need for each phase of your home's construction as it is needed will have significant cost savings over the time it takes to build your dream home
More specifically, home owners can expect bathroom and kitchen renovations to start at around $400 per square foot; however, renovations in other rooms can be much cheaper and home owners can estimate renovation costs at around $200 per square foot. Since many factors affect the cost of a renovation, it is impossible to provide hard figures. Still, if you work closely with a contractor and use these estimates as a starting point, you'll have a clearer picture of your overall budget.
What about when the home-owner is trying to sell their house? It is well-known that a new kitchen has the best return on investment and can boost the value of a house significantly. It may be tempting to renovate this little profit maker first to get more money and to make the house more attractive, but there is a downfall - if there are any outstanding structural or major maintenance issues, the potential buyer, if they have any common sense, will find them when they have a structural survey performed. Depending on what the issue is, there could be one of several outcomes: a request for a reduction in price, a request for the work to be completed and re-inspected at the homeowner's expense, or, as is quite often the case, a permanent retraction of the offer. It's a hard pill to swallow for the seller, because typically a realtor's price evaluation of their house has not taken into account the cost of this additional work, and yet by having the work done, there seems to be no benefit in terms of increasing the house value. In fact, of course, there is - it's just that the evaluation was too high in the first place.
