How much does a remodel cost?
Every house is unique just like every person is unique. This means that every alteration you can make to a house will be unique to that house and the person it's being built for. A remodel can be a sizable investment so it's important to understand not only where the money is going, but how much value you're getting in return. Our favorite tool for discussing price before finalizing design decisions is the Cost vs. Value Report. In it you will find an assortment of various remodeling actual remodeling projects completed in your area, how much of an investment it took to bring them about, and what the resale value was. This is as close to an actual figure you can get without going through the lengthy process of creating a design and building a project.
