Know how long you will stay in your home before remodeling
Before deciding to remodel, Mark Bourgeois of B&B Unique Remodeling of West Roxbury, Mass., says homeowners should think long-term. Bourgeois recently weighed in on important considerations.
What should Boston area homeowners be thinking about before remodeling?
Bourgeois: "All projects can offer value and return given a homeowner's future plans about living in the house. It is very important to consider how long you will live in the home after the projects are done. It doesn't make much sense to spend $200,000 on an addition if your going to sell within five years but a new door or beautiful kitchen would be sensible regardless of how long you plan to stay in the home."
