I hear that only beloved houses should be remodeled, since it costs more than added resale in most cases. Maybe this can be mitigated by sticking to remodels that fix flaws.
I'd rather move, and spend money on my dream house, but I can't seem to find it. I'm afraid I will be stuck here, squeezed into a too small house.
There's an old bathroom and an old kitchen that have to be updated anyway, so the decision is not whether to, but rather how much to remodel. I would love to move the upper stair, and add a back door for light, and a big master closet, and an alcove to the tiny bedroom. Plus lots of people build over the garages, but that doesn't fix the flaws.
I suppose it's all a risk. I can gamble that my ideas and taste will make some money, or at least if I get stuck here, it will be in a house I like.
How did you decide whether to remodel or move?
