If you’re in the market to remodel your place, having a clear plan
of action and asking all the right questions before you start will
help avoid costly and stressful mistakes.

Part of making a house a home is customizing it to your liking. Once
you have a vision set on what you want to accomplish, digging down
to the details will ensure that the vision for your overhaul becomes a
reality and not a nightmare. If you’re planning to make improvements,
make sure you understand the many moving pieces involved.
Overhauling real estate requires the skills of a master conductor, and
binge-watching HGTV doesn’t exactly equip you for the plethora
of unseen challenges you’ll face. Does the condo association
require approval of your remodel plans before you can commence
construction? Do they have an approved-contractor list that you
must work with? What hours are they allowed to work? How can you
ensure that the contractor delivers the job on time and on budget?
Having a clearly identified scope for the project along with a realistic
schedule of completion is a must. Don’t delay in picking and sourcing
materials like flooring and finishes. They can require significant lead
time for delivery and you want to make sure your construction crew
isn’t waiting for the Italian marble delivery to install your custom
kitchen. Making clear decisions ahead of time will ensure you live in
your home happily ever after. And that’s really all that matters.
Regardless of how nice
the views may be from
your current office,
home is where the heart
is. Take a look at these
top real estate offerings
sure to take your life to
the next level.
