Remodeling Your Home: Should I Move or Remodel?

House full of packed boxes

Before you decide to take on a remodeling project, the first thing to do is make sure remodeling is your best choice.

The following is an excerpt from the first chapter of our WaFed - Custom Construction Ebook.

If you’re looking for a change, there are three basic options. You can remodel your current home, move to a new home, or build a custom home.

Before you choose remodeling, ask yourself: Why are you interested in remodeling? Can remodeling satisfy all the features you want in your home? If you remodel your home and complete everything on your list, will you be satisfied with the result?

Buying a new home.

In some cases, it may be easier to start over. Do some research online or contact a real estate agent to see if you can find a home that meets all of your needs. You may be surprised to find exactly what you’re looking for on the market. That convenience may be worth it to you.

Building a custom home.

Another great option is to build a custom home. This gives you the flexibility to control most aspects of the home, from the lot and design to the fixtures and appliances. If building custom is something you’re interested in, WaFed - Custom Construction Ebook.


Perhaps you love your neighborhood or the architectural style of your house. Maybe the home has been in your family for a long time or you have great memories and don’t want to move. If the improvements you want are achievable with a remodel, then staying in your current home may be a great option.

We hope that you find this information useful in deciding whether to purchase a new home, build a custom home or remodel your current home. If so, please WaFed-RemodelingeBook to learn more about the remodeling process.
