Regardless of whether you're planning to sell your home, landscaping your front and backyard increases your property value dramatically without making a huge impact on your finances. Add flowers to your garden, build a planter, clean up debris, and you've already made improvements to your landscaping without spending a lot of money.

It is important to consider two main factors that will affect the price tag on your project - soft costs and hard costs. Soft costs include design and budget development, permit fees, and professional fees (i.e. the cost for architecture and interior design). Hard costs are related to the construction phase of your project and will include the cost of labour and materials. In the typical renovation, soft costs account for about 30% of your budget, while hard costs make up the remaining 70%.

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.

It is important that each step is broke down into a time frame so that you and the contractor can work together to make sure progress stays on track.

This information can be obtained from your local real estate office or a qualified appraiser. Real estate salespersons and appraisers for most part use a process called CMA (comparable market analysis) to determine your home value. In short the appraiser looks at similar properties sold recently near your home. Using hisher extensive database, the appraiser is able to adjust the price based on the condition of various areas of your home as well as any new additions. For example the database indicates that an additional second bathroom in your area increases home value by $8000, updated kitchen increase value by $6000, Second garage does not impact the value and etc. This is how your local real estate salesperson is able to price out your home.
Madeleine Wiley Home Renovation, 2018-09-18 12:16:35. Slow economy and slow real estate market does not mean that you can not remodel your home to increase its value. What it means is that you need to know what to renovate and how much to renovate in order to turn a good profit. At first sight this may seem simple; however, there is more involved than a simple question from your local renovator. To fully maximize your profit you need to understand value engineering in regard to home renovation.

During the process of renovating your home, you must bid for at least 3 renovation experts. This will allow them to develop the best plan for your dream home. In order to widen your scope for the selection of renovation expert, you can bid for more than one expert and thereafter choose from the available alternatives as per your preferences.

It may be that you don't need to do this if the problem is obvious - for example, if every time it rains you have a bath because the bath fills up from a leak in the ceiling, (a high-high issue in most people's books), a call to a roofer sooner rather than later would be in order. On the other hand, there might be issues which you are unsure of such as visible cracks in the brickwork possibly due to a sinking foundation. This would rate in the medium-high category where the likelihood is unknown but has some supporting evidence (the cracks), and the consequence is financially significant (the house falling down). In a case such as this, or whatever your case might be where you are unsure of the cause of an effect, it's time to consult with others. You may consider talking with family or friends who may have had similar issues, but this tends to leave more doubt as people's natural reaction is to guess and err on the negative side. It is much better to talk to an expert in the field you are concerned with - if it's the roof, talk to a roofer; the brickwork, talk to a stonemason; an electrical issue, an electrician. Go about the process as if you were intending to get have the work done (you may well have to) - get three quotes and therefore three separate opinions, and ask lots of questions. It may turn out that the cracks in the brickwork are merely superficial and become a high-low case, that is, the cracks are definitely there, but will cause no further problems. The low significance cases, regardless of the likelihood, are generally aesthetic and can be resolved at any future time you wish. As for low likelihood cases, they should, in general, not make it to your list.
Marjorie Lee Home Renovation, 2018-09-18 15:35:23. Deciding to renovate your home is a big decision, and can be an expensive one depending on the type of renovation to be done. As with many walks of life, home renovations can generally be divided into those that we need, and those that we want. In life, we need air to breathe, but we want chocolate gâteau to eat. Sure, we could choose the chocolate gâteau in favour of the air, but we'll soon start to regret it. And so it goes, albeit on a less life-critical scale, for home renovations.
