There are so many options when it comes to renovating your home, but one of the biggest decisions is whether to renovate or rebuild. There are pros and cons to both options, and knowing those can help make your decision easier.

If you’re looking at your house and thinking it needs a little love, you might also be wondering if it would be more beneficial to fix up the existing house or just tear it down and start over. Both are valid options.

Determine Your Goals

To determine what to do with your home, you first need to establish your goals. Are you looking to sell your home soon, or stay for many years to come? Renovating can add a lot of value just by updating one or two rooms. However, rebuilding could be a better option if you’re planning to stay.

Renovate Your Existing Home

Renovating your current home can be a great way to add value, and may be less costly than rebuilding. Depending on what needs to be done, it may also be helpful to take your projects on a little at a time. For example, you could get your bathrooms updated one at a time before moving on to a kitchen remodel. This way, you’re not stuck without all of those essential rooms at once.

Renovating your home also usually takes a lot less time than rebuilding does. Plus, if you work with a general contractor, the work could get done even faster than doing it yourself.

Start Fresh and Rebuild

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work your current home needs, rebuilding may also be a good option. Does the layout not work anymore for your family? Or does the home need a lot of structural work? Your home may need more than just a facelift, and those projects can get pricey and overwhelming.

Instead of pouring more into your current home, another option may be to just tear it down and start new. This gives you a clean slate and the ability to get creative. Now, you can build a home that works for you and your family. Plus, you can rest assured knowing that your new home will not require any more work for a long time.
