Holiday Makeovers

While many people are in the thick of holiday festivities, many more are taking advantage of the season to improve their homes. This can be a great time of the year to plan an upgrade to your space, even if you can’t schedule contractors to help until after the new year.

Home mortgage rates are at historical lows and are predicted to stay this was for some time. This means that you can borrow money cheaper than ever before. If you are looking to do a large remodeling project or addition on your home, you may want to speak to a lender to see about a home equity loan or a cash out refinance to pay for the purchase. This means that your pipedream of a second floor on your ranch home is a possibility if the finances work out.

These low rates are also great if you are looking for a new construction home. There are many great neighborhoods with lots available where you can use an approved builder or bring your own builder to create the home of your dreams.

So much family togetherness over the past year has many people dreaming of a home office with a door that closes, or a homeschooling classroom, or separate bedrooms for all of their kids. This could be the year to update a dated kitchen or bathroom.

It could also be the year to purchase a new home which means taking care of all of the pesky problems you have lived with in your current home to get it ready for a sale. This would include fixing anything that is broken or in poor repair so you can get top dollar from a buyer.
