2016 is coming to a close and the new year is quickly approaching. You may have had an amazing year and accomplished everything that you wanted to get done. If this is you, congratulations! If you are like most us, however, there may have been some projects that you had to put off for one reason or another. There may have been some things that you just couldn’t find the time for or that you didn’t make a real priority and that is fine too. As the new year gets closer now is the time to get planning. You can start fresh, set some goals, and prioritize whatever it is that you didn’t get done this year. If you are a home owner and you have been putting off your home renovation for a while, 2017 is a great time to start. Finding a builder is one of the most important steps that you need to take in the process.
The start of a new year always gets people a bit more aware of yet another trip around the sun. Statistics show that people have a renewed sense of purpose and a strong sense of forward momentum that is much harder to come by at any other time of the year. Why not harness that momentum and get started on your home renovation project? Chances are you will reap the benefits all year long if you start early on.
Deals and Promotions
The New Year and the period right after can bring you deals and special offers. The months of January and February are probably the slowest time periods in the construction and building industries. Larger scale remodels and home renovations are most popular during the spring and summer months. Therefore, starting in January or February may lean in your favor when you are dealing with your contractor. Another added benefit of starting out your project is that since business is usually slow your contractor may have more time to dedicate to your project which in turn can get your renovation done quicker. If you can get a deal and get the project done ahead of schedule, what else is there?
Add Value to Your Home
If you renovate your home, you will be adding additional value to it that you can capitalize on in the future. Let’s say you are planning to sell your home at the end of the year. You are more likely to get a better price with a renovated kitchen and beautiful modern bathrooms than you would if you are still working with a kitchen from the 1980’s. Some people search for fixer-upper’s and the like but most buyers want to walk into a home that is updated, fresh, and basically a turn-key operation. Prospective home buyers are already shelling out a large amount of money and the last thing that they want to be faced with is having to shell out more money to update the home that they are purchasing.
