February is all about love, so ask yourself - do you love your home? If you’re not quite feeling it anymore, it might be time to make some changes. This could be a simple home redecoration, or a more adventurous project like a renovation. If neither of these sound right for you, it could be time to let go of your home and find a new one to love. An unbiased mortgage professional can help you get started with the mortgage pre-approval process so you can begin your dream home hunt as soon as possible!
Start simple and redecorate
Consider the least drastic option first. Your home could just be a little dated, and in need of a refresh for you to feel that love again. What rooms do you use most often, and which ones need the most work? Focus on improving those.
Sometimes, a simple redecoration project is all you need. You can keep it basic with some new decorative pillows and throws, or maybe fresh artwork for the walls. If you want to go one step further, consider a new paint job or some new furniture. These little aspects can have a huge impact on how we feel about the rooms in our home. It’s best to start small, and work your way up to bigger projects if needed. You can read about some budget-wise decorating tips here.
Is it time for a renovation or refinance?
So, maybe you’ve decided an easy home decor project isn’t enough. Now you can look at some more permanent and advanced solutions. The decision to invest in more serious upgrades can work to your benefit. With home prices constantly rising in this competitive market, a nice renovation will likely increase your home’s value in case you decide to sell. Kitchens and bathrooms are two popular renovation spots, so this might be a good time to get some new countertops or sinks.
Since renovations can be pricey, refinancing can be a good option to help pay for those costs. Depending on your home equity, a refinance might increase your home’s value when it’s used to cover renovation expenses.
Are you ready to move on?
Sometimes, there’s no solution to your home problems, which means it’s time to move on. Right now is a great time to sell in Halifax, and you can be sure you’ll gain as much value as possible out of the sale. If you’re worried about the potential difficulty of finding a new home in this market, don’t let that hold you back.
