Thinking of Remodeling?

October 4, 2021

The Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase happened this past weekend, October 1-3. If you have renovation plans in the works, this tour was a great way to start your inspiration! Thirty-Nine homes were featured this year, style varied from eclectic vibe, to lake cottage and modern.

Remodeling may be the best option if your style and tastes no longer fit but you want to stay in your current neighborhood. If you are considering taking on a renovation project, there are some important decisions to make.

The tour featured many different vendors, and when you are planning a remodel, it is critical you choose a trustworthy team.

* Define your objectives; are you focusing on function or flow?
* Choose the things you most use, need and love. Or maybe your remodeled space is made to entertain by turning your vision of a custom kitchen into reality.
* Determine budget and financing. Build your wishlist by wants vs needs. How much are you willing to spend? Will your property value support your improvements?
* Research remodelers, interview top contenders and contact references.

Follow these tips and you will achieve that dream look you’ve wanted!

Pencil in your calendar for the next Parade of Homes & the Remodelers Showcase starting in March. For more information, head over to paradeofhomes.org
