Reasons to Remodel Before Moving InWhen you purchase a new home, knowing you intend to remodel it, the question becomes: should we move in now and live through renovations, or just get it done before we move in? While it can require some extra expense or planning, choosing to remodel before you move in to your new home comes with many benefits. This proactive approach not only allows you to customize the space to your preferences but also addresses potential issues, enhances comfort, and sets the stage for a more enjoyable living experience.

Reasons to Remodel Before Moving In

Increased Convenience

Undertaking a remodel after moving into your new home can be disruptive and inconvenient. Construction work, dust, noise, and the need to temporarily relocate furniture can disrupt your daily routine and create stress. While it is possible to live in the home during the remodel in many cases, you may find it more stressful than you expected. By completing the remodel before moving in, you can enjoy a seamless transition into your new space without the disruptions associated with ongoing construction.

Accelerated Timeline

Many homeowners underestimate the affect that living in the home during the remodel will have on the remodeling timeline. This is true for a few reasons.

You may find after moving in that the noise and disruption to your comfort means you don’t end up completing the entire remodel at once. Rather than getting the whole home remodeled at once, you may decide to handle the kitchen remodel first and then take a break for a while. While this is reasonable, it can mean that you do not have the home you really want for years longer than you originally expected.

Another reason the timeline can be accelerated if you remodel before moving in is the actual work hours. Living in the home while it is being remodeled may mean there are days that work on the home has to pause. This might be due to your family being sick, a personal request due to guests visiting or personal circumstances, or even just limited work hours to accommodate your family schedule.

If you are not living in the home while it is begin renovated, our team can work more efficiently to complete the job. Without the concern of noise levels, early morning arrivals, or sickness, the timeline can be substantially accelerated in comparison to working while you live there.

Lower Stress Levels

The process of remodeling can be messy. Even with a licensed, insured, and experienced team like ours, there are often unexpected bumps in the road or just the expected mess. In other words, the house will likely look much worse before it looks better.

If you don’t move in until the remodel is complete or nearly complete, you can trust the process and enjoy a ┬ábit of blissful ignorance. Instead of observing the work zone every day, you can pop in at pivotal points to check on the progress and enjoy a far less stressful remodeling experience. Let us shoulder the day-to-day stresses of the project and wait to move in to your new dream home.
