To Remodel or Not to Remodel, That Is The Question!
Hey, DB- Kitchen remodels top the list for desirable projects when it comes to return on investment; it also can help your home stand out from the competition when it's on the market. Do you and your wife plan to sell soon? If so, I'd say to remodel now. With the decrease in demand for work from contractors, both labor and material costs are down, and now is a great time to remodel. If, however, you plan to stay put for a while, I suppose there's no rush. Are these appliances in serious states of disrepair? I don't cook too frequently either, but I LOVE entertaining, and the idea of having my oven or stove out of commission sounds dreadful. My best advice would be to have a chat with your wife about how long you plan to stay where you live. If a FOR SALE sign is in the not-so-distant future, take advantage of the steals and deals that are out there. Your home (and Uncle Sam) will thank you.
