How to decide whether to stay & remodel or move?
Dh & I have looked at several houses lately and we're coming to the conclusion that we might be better off to just stay where we are. If so, I want to completely remodel this house to make it something I love. I have NEVER loved this house, in fact I barely like it.
We can estimate how much it will take to redo this house again, but without having a specific house in mind, I don't know how to figure if it will be cheaper to do that than to move.
The houses we're been looking at are in the $150K - $185K range and still need a lot of work, at least $30K we figure after a brief inspection. All need a kitchen updating, paint and carpet throughout. And that's not including any closing or moving costs.
Any idea how to figure out the cost difference and whether it would be better to remodel or buy something else?
