The simplest and most complete aid to making the very important decision, "Should I move, or should I remodel?" Beginning with a description of why people remodel and why people move, this valuable book takes a step-by-step approach to helping readers make the best decision for themselves. "Remodel or Move" does not try to convince you to move or to remodel. It treats both options equally, giving you the information you need to make the best decision for your unique situation.
After providing a description of why people choose to move versus remodel, "Remodel or Move" then lists out the costs of moving and remodeling. With these costs, the reader is provided with worksheets (both hard copy and access to an online computer version) that use information provided by the reader to provide a financial analysis of his or her options. The same worksheet also has questions regarding the homeowner's feelings towards moving, remodeling, neighborhood, and other issues that are used to provide a non-financial recommendation on whether to remodel or to move.
"A first of its kind. A book that carefully addresses the question so many of us have faced with little help."
"Hundreds of books written on how to sell and thousands on how to remodel, this is the first that helps readers decide if they should remodel or move!"
"A great tool for homeowners. Easy to read text, great illustrations and worksheets. The work-sheets are the best part. Following simple instructions, readers enter information regarding their unique situation and the worksheet calculates what the best decision is! Fantastic!"
"Homeowners typically don't understand that it costs 10% to 15% of their home's value to sell and move. Remodel or Move is the first book that outlines costs, and then compares them to what could be done using the same money for remodeling. This book will save homeowners thousands of dollars no matter what they decide."
"Confidence! This book gives homeowners the confidence to make the decision to Remodel or Move by carefully reviewing the costs and benefits of both options. No matter what the homeowners choose, after reading Remodel or Move, they will be confident that they made the best decision for their unique situation!"
