Some major life decisions – saying “yes” to that wedding ring, for example, or leaving a secure job for a new career across the country – may take a lot of serious thought and careful consideration. But many others – finally taking that dream vacation or really going after that promotion at work – simply mean a leap of faith. Your home is no different, and there’s no better time like the present to take that first step to making your home “just right.”
At Malcarne Contracting, the sentiment we hear most often when it comes to clients who have recently finished a renovation, upgrade or addition to their home is nearly always, “I wish we would have done this sooner!” Their former concerns – the time it would take to complete the project, for example, or their thoughts that the house needed too much work – seem small in comparison to the extra space in a new deck area, an upgraded, better-functioning kitchen, or a second bathroom for kids or guests.
We couldn’t agree more: Whether it’s the money you’ll save on air conditioning by sealing out the sultry summer air, new siding to give your home better curb appeal, or relaxing in the extra square footage of a new finished basement, now is the perfect time to make your vision a reality. Plus, now is the best time to begin a home project: Summer weather means the perfect opportunity to undertake outdoor projects such as backyard spaces, roof and window work, or even that energy-smart makeover you’ve been wanting for years.
Still, not everyone’s in their “forever home” – and perhaps your family is planning to find a new abode sometime in the near future. Even if you’re hoping to move out of your current space, doing a renovation or addition can have twice the reward: You’re more likely to get a higher return on your investment when you sell your property, as well as more likely to sell the house faster thanks to upgraded spaces, plus you get to enjoy the renovation now while you look for a new home.
Still, whether you’re naturally a “just go for it” kind of person or are someone who has each day planned out down to the minute, the best time to consider a home renovation is the same: Now is the perfect moment to call Malcarne and get that home renovation you’ve been pining after for years. It’s time to close the door to “I wish we would have done this sooner” and to say “welcome home” to “just right.”
