Want to renovate your home but don’t know when to start? The truth is …. life is busy with ongoing activities, plans, and schedules, so there is never a perfect time to start. However, there are certainly pros and cons for working on your home remodel throughout different times of the year. Here are a few suggestions on when you know it’s time to start your renovation project:
1. If you’re getting ready to sell your home
If you are preparing to list your home on the market, there are some things that can be done to make it more attractive and appealing to potential buyers. For example, the following items should be cleaned and repaired before the listing process begins:
- The interior of your house including kitchen appliances, floors, countertops and cabinets
- The exterior of your property including siding, windowsills and deck railings (if applicable)
- You can update the countertops in the kitchen to upraise the overall value of your home
Renovating your home before putting it on the market is the perfect time to remodel. It will help increase value and encourage buyers to see the potential in your gorgeous, newly renovated home.
2. Before the Holidays
Fall is a great time to remodel because of the weather. The summer heat, humidity and bugs are gone, making it easier to move in and out of the house without breaking a sweat. It’s a time when kids go back to school, attend after school activities and are outside of the house more often than not. Therefore, take advantage of your family’s schedule being back on track and renovate the inside of your home when the kids are out of the house!
Fall is also a good time to remodel because of all the holidays that quickly follow behind: Halloween (Oct 31st), Thanksgiving (Nov 22nd) and Christmas (Dec 25th). Depending on how big of a renovation you plan to take on, you can get your home update in about 1-2 months. Therefore, if you start early enough in the Fall, your home will be ready for the holiday festivities that come toward the end of the year. And what better way to show off a new home renovation than with family gathered to celebrate a holiday?
3. In The Winter
If you’re not planning to host for the holidays, Winter is actually a great time to work on construction in your home. It’s the least popular time for renovation projects because everyone else is holding off to start work after the holidays are over.
Plus, if you take advantage of the renovation season lull and set your construction start date for winter, you’ll be finished with your project by the time most people are calling contractors to get in their schedule.
4. When You Feel Like It
