Home Renovation. Tuesday , October 09th , 2018 - 00:07:46 AM
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.
Still, you probably want some advance advice about how to budget for your renovation. 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%.
Back this up by pulling out the home inspection that you had done when you first bought the home and going over it again (after you've blown off the dust). Make a list of the possible issues and prioritize them into those that are urgently needed and those you can live with. A very basic risk assessment would look at each item and give it a score of high, medium or low for the two categories of likelihood and consequence. Those that come out high-high, high-medium or medium-high are the most urgent and should be dealt with first.
