It may seem with the uncertain times we are in that now isn’t a great time to start the home remodeling project you’ve been dreaming of; however, nothing could be further from the truth. Now is one of the best times in a long time to call a few remodeling contractors and find out about feasibility of your project and what it will take as far as budget to get it done.
Interest Rates are Low
If you’ve been thinking about refinancing to take advantage of lower interest rates, consider a cash out refi. You’ll have the cash you need to get the job done, perhaps without an increase to your monthly payment. If you’re not interested in refinancing, consider a remodeling loan, HELOC or second mortgage.
It’s a Hard Time to Buy and Sell a Home
Even as social distancing measures are relaxing homeowners don’t love the idea of strangers coming through their home or going to look at strangers’ homes. Because of this, the homes on the market are for sale because the family is moving out of the area. There are few listings and even if you find the house you want where you want to be, you may end up in a bidding war for that home.
Remodeling Contractors Have Availability
Because so many people have been furloughed, many projects have been delayed or cancelled. Remodeling contractors are more readily available than they were even a year ago. You may be surprised as to how much of the preparation can be done while still adhering to social distancing practices.
You’re Working from Home Now
One big obstacle for some homeowners is that they work. Because they work in an office, they can’t be there to let contractors in and out of the home or be available for deliveries. With so many companies now encouraging work from home either full or part time, you can be there to oversee the workers and not feel that people are in your home while you’re not.
You’re Home More
Families report eating at home more frequently with the pandemic. As a result,s they’ve realized that the space they haven’t isn’t the space they need.
