Should I Remodel My Home or Move?


It depends on your specific circumstances and what you hope to gain from the change. Remodeling can be a good option if you love your current location and community, and the changes you want to make are relatively minor and within your budget. However, if you’re looking for a bigger change or if the cost of remodeling is too high compared to your budget, it may make more sense to move. Ultimately, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each option and consider factors such as cost, convenience, and your long-term goals. Let’s explore some of the pros and cons of remodeling your home vs. moving.

Remodeling Pros:

  • You can customize your home to fit your specific needs and preferences.
  • You can update and modernize your home to increase its value and functionality.
  • You can stay in your current neighborhood and community, which can be important if you have strong connections there.
  • You can avoid the stress and expense of moving.

Remodeling Cons:

  • The cost of remodeling can be high, especially if you’re making major changes.
  • The process can be a bit disruptive to your every day routine, and time-consuming depending on the scope.
  • There is a risk of cost overruns.
  • There is a risk of not recopuing the cost of the remodel at resale.

Moving Pros:

  • You have the opportunity to find a home that better fits your needs and preferences.
  • You can move to a more desirable location or neighborhood.
  • You can start fresh in a new home.
  • You may be able to find a home that is a better value for the money.

Moving Cons:

  • The process of moving can be stressful and expensive.
  • You may have to leave behind a home and neighborhood that you love.
  • You may have to sacrifice certain features or amenities that your current home has.
  • You may have to adapt to a new community and make new connections.
