We’ve all looked at our homes and thought of ways we can improve them. One of the joys of homeownership is the ability to improve and add on to your home, making it your perfect space. From new decks to replacing kitchen cabinets, bathroom remodels or living room expansions, the possibilities for change seem endless. Whether you are looking at projects for yourself or contemplating the sale of your home, there is one question that comes up consistently. What is the impact of your do-it-yourself projects? Here’s our answer; DIY: The Impact of Your Projects!
Creating Your Own Space
Your home is amazing! It’s the space you looked at and fell in love with, but unless you built it then there is always something you want to do. Your home should be your sanctuary, your own space, and do-it-yourself projects are not only getting that dream closer to reality but also doing it with your own hands.
The Joy of the Work
Do-it-yourself home projects have been shown to increase the joy of the homeowner in numerous surveys. There really isn’t anything quite like transforming a part of your home yourself. The time investment, the memories, and even the potential time spent working with family and friends can create an incredible sense of joy and fulfillment.
Often we think about the addition of cash value to our home. The reality is that this question is not easy to answer. It depends on a lot of factors. For one, having a professional handle these projects is probably better if you’re looking to maximize the value of your home. Another factor is exactly what project you’re doing. Various projects will have different impacts on the cash value, and they can change based on time and location. Finding a good resource to help is vital. Here is a wonderful review of various projects and their impact on cash value.
